New Round Table Pizza Logo(s)

Recommended Posts

Downgrade, I'd say. The older logo has "FUN" hidden in the upper part of the logo. The new middle logo looks like the unused Papa John's logo and without the "Pizza Royalty," can be a logo for anything (like furniture). The bottom roundel is a bit better but the "rT" is too stylized; is it supposed to resemble something?

I think the "r" from the "rT" in the roundel is just pulling off the right-hand part of the "D" in the full logo. Trying too hard to be clever there.

It looks like the negative space between the "d T" is meant to evoke a knight's helmet (below, but reversed). The top of the "T" would be a feathered plume.

Way too hard to make out the "rT" or the knight's helmet.  The idea is nice, but I can't tell what the hell is going on.  Downgrade.

Ohhhhhhhhhh I don't know about this one.

Strangely, I'm not sentimental about most logos, but as a kid growing up in California, Round Table was a big part of my childhood.

 

The wordmark is great for a baseball jersey, but I'm not feeling the monochrome at ALL. That rT is way too messy too. Then again, this could all be sentimentality, so take my opinion with a grain of garlic salt.

Ohhh, now I can kinda see the knight's helmet. Only took like 4 minutes of looking. Then again, I don't see "FUN" in the first logo. So lateral move? Bad to bad.

I don't hate it, but I don't absolutely love it, either. It is an upgrade over that atrocious 90s-inspired board game rip off logo.

It's very subtle, but if you look at the shapes of the shields as well as the colors, it does very vaguely spell "FUN." But I agree it's no arrow in the FedEx logo. I only even knew it was there because I happened to read their Wikipedia page once and it was mentioned there.

It's gonna be tough seeing Round Table without those shields.

The font used here for the words Round Table is what I'd have used as a base for the new logo. The logo is an upgrade, but it does also miss the mark and feel generic, while the old was a relic from it's era. Had they chosen instead to modernize this script and kept the FUN flags, then you'd have something.

Same here.. growing up we had pizza once a week and it was always Round Table and see this change is just another reminder that I'm getting old.

Anyone else think the lettering looks Brandiose-y? The hidden helmet is imo much more convincing in the full word mark with the d tail forming the eye slit than in that hideous secondary. That's like an early sketch you make when you're just tooling around with ideas, who approved that? Certainly doesn't make me want to eat pizza, downgrade I guess. Both stink.

I have no idea what Round Table Pizza is.  Never been to one.

 

So in my totally vacuum opinion, the new logo is nicer looking.  The old one looks like a 90s ad for Six Flags.  But reading the comments in this thread, I'm getting the vibe that Round Table is more along the McDonald's side of the pizza spectrum and not so much fine dining.

It's basically just a pizza chain. I don't know if there are any in Oregon, but have you heard of Abby's? I've come across several of those in Oregon and it's near identical in terms of presentation. Basically a casual pizza place that's good for parties, some have old arcade machines, etc.

Very much so. I go to them on occasion and always to the actual location, I never do delivery. They're more dining-oriented than the big chains like Pizza Hut or Domino's.

Yeah I've been to Abby's. They're blandly right in the middle of the spectrum. If I want cheap, fast pizza I'll go for Pizza Hut or Dominos, and if I want a lot authentic pizza parlor experience I'll go to some place local that serves up good microbrews, etc.

Yeah that's pretty much Round Table and any other "mid-level" pizza chain. Nothing you go out of your way for but fine if you just want a place to sit down at.
