Denver Broncos Logo Refresh *2/8 = Overhauled (Less Realism, more Design)

Recommended Posts

Yes! It is a horse/D combo! I made the D more western and made the horse look less "noodly".

Let me know what you think (preferably be C&C).

The size of the D versus the size of the horse are off. The D looks too big relative to the horse, which makes the horse inside look too small. It gets worse because the horse's head and legs look too big for the body.

 

That said, I like where you're going.

This was an observation I was concerned about. It's not that the horse is "small" compared to the D or "Large" compared to other body parts, so much as that part of it's body is blocked by the left side of the D. The old logo looked terribly mal-nurished because they just tried to keep the horse's back away from the left side rather than deal with this kind of issue. Horses rarely get so vertical as the old logo suggests. My horse is in a more natural pose. So without the visual information of the horse's back your eye may see the vertical part of the D and interpret it as the horse's back.

If you look at the image you posted, that horse on the left resembles the actual D/horse logo much more than your logo does. 

 

The horse is straight up vertical....

I'm a die heart broncos fan;  and although I understand the how important the horse- D logo is to the team's history, I still prefer the current horse head logo.

 

But good job on the logo though!

I love the D keep it, the jaw seems a little too circular and large like a squirrel with nuts in its mouth id suggest reducing the blue shadow on that. Also the eye seems too proportional as well. It has a very realistic size. Enlarging the eye a tad to give it a more logo like feel will definitely help.

The D is perfect, but yeah, the body of the horse is too small. That's the only change that really needs to be made here. Other than that, it's perfect.

I disagree:

It has more verticality than mine but not as much as the classic broncos mark. You have to look at where the spine is directed.

Not gonna lie, this is probably the only time I've ever was less than stunned at your designs. IMO, your horse reminds me of a more of a Shetland pony than it does a bronco, and I think the western-style D is a bit too T H I C C for my tastes, at least compared to the horse.

Made a few adjustments:

Decided to add a white border to the D. Should it also be on the inside of the D or not?

The updated logo looks a lot better than the original.

Something still feels off about the horse's body, but I can't put my finger on it. The outlined 'D' is nice, and it looks more consistent with the outline on the inside, too.

Despite the photo reference, in your logo the horse feels like it's falling forward. Stuck somewhere between jumping through the D and standing tall in it. You can fix it in a number of ways, your choice. Either 1) :censored: the head back a bit to make it more clear that it's upright and intends to be upright, 2) rotate the entire body back so that it's standing straight up like in the original, or 3) give it a more forward motion so that it appears to be jumping through the D.

As usual, each update has this looking better and better. What would the horse look like with an orange mane?

I love the Western D. It looks like it would fit with the Broncos' pre-1997 script logo. However, while the OG Bronco-through-the-D was too vertical, yours didn't look vertical enough, at first. It looks better with the adjustments you've made, to the point where I don't even notice the former issue with verticality.

The mane needs a trim, then looks great

Its a bronco, not a show pony. ;)

Gets lost in the D.

I like it a lot. I wonder if it would still look good without the shading: right now it seems a tad too complex.

It works out ok, but seems too bland.

I think the neck/face, especially around the cheek, make the horse look kinda fat. Other than that I like it a lot
