Minor change to Florida Gators logo

Recommended Posts

I downloaded the latest logosheet the other day for the Gators and noticed that they made some changes. On the primary, they dropped the light green on the gator's chin and replaced with the regular green:

To me, this a downgrade. It takes away the lighting/depth and makes it look like one big green glob IMO. The thing is, they kept the light green on the underbelly of the standing gator logo, so now they aren't even consistent. Other changes include: dropping the block F, the wordmarks are all the same letter height, and the slanted "F" loses the dropshadow and gets an outline

It inverts the depth. The light green made the chin look recessed, while the regular green makes it look like it sticks out.

In real life, the original colour is correct.

Yeah. Stupid downgrade, looks more like a mistake in the file than a conscious choice.

Printing three colors isn't any more expensive than three.

Why even keep the green? Florida's school colors are orange and blue. You NEVER see green on any uniforms, and you never will. I say just get rid of it altogether.

Yeah, I've seen a cool version of the Gators logo in just blue and white before, that the Lacrosse company I did work for has done. It's pretty much a simplified logo, and white instead of green. But I do think it's a solid logo overall, but nothing is unchangeable.

Lots of teams have extraneous colors in their logos, though. Should the Blackhawks make their logo just red, white and black?

A white outline was added around the entire logo as well. This removes that weird-looking intersection where the white at the top and bottom of the jaw broke the blue outline.

Is it bad that I couldnt even tell until I read the posts? Haha, I seriously saw something changed in the green, as if it got lighter but I didn't notice.

Personally, the green they're using looks atrocious with the blue outlines. Use black outlines and I think it would improve it.

The change Florida should've made:

I think florida should just start using green. Green, Orange, and Blue would look really interesting. Just as long as they keep the green to a little more than a trim color.
