Small details that bother you

661 posts in this topic

Since they released the new logo, it's always bothered me how the "Toronto" script doesn't have the white lines in the middle of each letter. Just a small thing, but it really bothers me.

Are there any other small details in logos that really bother you?

It would be rather hard to read if they made it split-lettered.

And the off-centre text kills me every time:

THIS!!! Why not just connect them!?

It's fixed now, but for a while! It drove me crazy...

Sloppy, mismatching sleeves (49ers, steelers).

The Saints' goofy helmet bumper. As far as I know it's the only one in the league to not feature the team's wordmark.

The line connecting J and e really bug me. Probably since all those handwriting lessons told me not to write J that way.

The Chiefs don't have their name on the nose bumper.

I believe the cowboys have solid white bumpers on non-riddell helmets.

There are a few teams that have bumper decals that aren't the official wordmarks. Patriots have had non-wordmark bumper decals for years. I think the only time they did wear bumper decals featuring the official cursive wordmark (since the rebranding in '93) was Super Bowl 36.

The fact that the ball and the leaf are no longer connected at the stem... Why dont they meet up, they're both right there... and the split letter as mentioned

The white piping on yellow doesn't bother me, but the part that crosses the hemstripe and sticks out on the navy waist bothers the hell outta me.

It should end when it meets the horizontal white line.

It always bothered me that the Bengals logos seemed to be backwards. The tiger was looking backwards...

...and leaping backwards...

By the same token, helmet logos should face to the right, not like this:

Another Jays one....

The wordmark on the road greys has a navy outline that the wordmarks on the home whites and alternate blues don't have.

The way the P slightly overlaps the H in the Phillies jersey wordmark.

Pretty sure everywhere else it's used, it doesn't have the overlap.

Similar to that Toronto problem. It really bothers me that the Brewers put a second, navy, drop-shadow on their jerseys.

But only on the front wordmark. The rest is fine with just a white outline and gold drop-shadow:

They do this on the road grays as well, and it's infuriating.

It's overly fussy on its own (who needs two drop-shadows?) but the inconsistency makes it worse.

I'm also bothered by the fact that they have to rotate the script to make it fit on the primary logo:

That's just bad design.

The Brewers use Times New Roman, right? That's an awful font choice.
