Leeds United New Crest

Recommended Posts

I’m going to guess they’ll go back to their regular crest within 5 years. It looks like a PES generic team logo

Apparently 10,000 supporters were consulted as part of the design process. I'm assuming that they were fans of every other club in England, rather than Leeds? :D

5 years? With the current backlash I'm seeing it'll be 5 days.

In the current economy I’m just glad this guy found a new gig.

They say this is for the next 100 years.

 

This won't last 100 hours.

Still better than that generic logo we have now. :(

I can understand they wanted to show a world "Leeds Salute", but this will looks terrible on a kits. It'd be works better as a supporters group logo.

Okay, I’ll play contrarian.  I like it. 

 

I love using the Leeds Salute. And I don’t think they’ve ever had a great badge on which to draw, so I appreciate the lateral thinking.

Solid upgrade.

That's awful.

 

They need a mascot that is a guy with a blue rectangle for a head.

Leeds doesn't have 10000 supporters

Rip the process and the badge all you want but this is simply false.

You're gonna need to elaborate on this.

What’s to elaborate?  They’re using an identifiable and personal symbol of the club.

 

It’s also replacing a terrible badge. I have family as friends in Yorkshire. I know supporters who dislike the old Leeds badge because it’s a symbol of failure and mismanagement, and supporters who like it because it’s just an ugly design. I don’t know anyone who actually likes it.

 

When replacing an ugly modern design, my first instinct is to look to the past, to take inspiration from an older design.  But I don’t think Leeds’s past has anything worth borrowing.  So look forward, blazing a brand new trail. 

 

Sure, this one is unusual.   But that doesn’t automatically make it bad.

Yes, Leeds' old logo is generally ugly and cluttered. 

Yes, Leeds have never had a great logo to go on.

That's not an excuse to pull something like this out. Is the salute an identifiable, and personal symbol of the club? To a degree, yes. But the white rose of Yorkshire is also a much better symbol for the largest club in Yorkshire, and it looks ridiculously better. Some guy on twitter literally just switched the fan for the rose and the logo looked like an upgrade over the previous ones. 

 

I really do hope Leeds take his idea, otherwise they'll have one of the worst logos in England.

I think the peacock or especially the white rose of Yorkshire were both solid starting points for a logo. Updating the 1984 crest would have been the right choice. We’ve seen updates of worst logos in the past (notably the Man City badge inside a roundel).

 

 I don’t think a piece of fan culture should be the main representation of the team. It would be like the Packers having a cheesehead logo or Auburn using a tree covered in toilet paper as their logo.
