Leicester City Crest Concept


mcrosby

Recommended Posts

I've been attempting to update Leicester since this time last year, and I kept ending up with rose shaped fox-ish things, fox shaped rose-ish things, and general unhappiness. I think this direction is the best I've got thus far, but I want to share with you all to get that sweet, sweet C&C and turn this up to 11. I'm not nearly 100% happy with this, but with your help I think it could get there.

Have at 'er.

It's a very nice update of their crest (which is already quite nice), and I do love your font choice (Cuprum I believe?).

I have two critiques. 1. The lines extending from the fox's eyes make him look rather sad, and 2. the ball-as-nose seems forced, and kind of ends up looking like a penis.

The soccer ball nose freaks me out. I think you should lose the ball. I don't think the lines of the bridge of the nose have to meet the eyes, and maybe the bridge of the nose could be wider at the connection to the face than at the tip of the nose. Try it with out the V neck??

Why is there an ermine spot on the fox's muzzle? The cinquefoil (flower) with ermine spots in the present badge comes from the City of Leicester's own arms.

I suppose that would be why there's an ermine spot on the muzzle then.

I hope I've fixed this. I really, really do.

I would say you have fixed it. Overall it is a good modernisation of a classic badge. I can't unsee the napkin the fox is wearing...maybe he's going out for dinner.

Other than that I have no quabbles, and the ermine spot on the muzzle is a nice touch

I just saw this on dribbble, and I like this updated version. The only issue with the first draft was the sad, whimpering look, which you've fixed. I like this latest facial expression. It's tough but it's nice that you didn't feel the need to make the fox overly/unnecessarily fierce.

Haha!! Anyway, really nice work on this. You kept the classic design of their current crest, and updated it just enough to make it appear more modern but also changed it just enough to give it its own elements. Good work.

It's a toss up, really. The issue now is that, in both versions, the fox and/or flower are encroaching upon the text.

I'd either slightly shrink the fox/flower element in both -- OR -- for the blue version, shave off the points of the flower as was in your original version or in this new white version.

Making sense?
