Historical context.

Outside of the royal blue and yellow, what exactly is historically contextual about this rebrand? It looks extremely modernized, not classical. The logos look like app icons.

Clean.

That's because we only have the logo package so far, not the actual uniforms. It's easy to call something even mediocre "clean" if there's no context besides the logos themselves.

Better than the branding it is replacing...

Highly debatable; the STL-era stuff at least looked like the branding of a sports franchise instead of a tech company.

I don't see the "bad" here... but i mean.... if that's your opinion, cool...

 

To each their own, but I think even with the historical context, they missed the mark.  Honestly, I'm not sure it's even an upgrade from the previous Ram head logo.  You probably could have made some minor color updates and called it a day, and while disappointing, it'd still be a better look.  But whatever BRING ON THE JERSEYS

It's what they get for 1) waiting so long and 2) screwing up the logo in the first place. Their only hope is to come out with a uniform that closely resembles the throwbacks and then they begin to downplay the Good Morning LA logo. 

 

I am hoping they actually stay away from the throwbacks and instead go for a Yellow Home Primary with White Pants. It would be unique in the NFL. Then they can have a White Away Primary and keep the Blue Throwbacks as their alternate.

I've been on board with this logo from day one. It could have been better, but I think it's a huge improvement over the previous Ram Head logo. 


My biggest issue with it is the grey ear. It would look much better if they just kept it white. From the pictures I can't really notice as much of the "Sunset Orange" in the horns.

The history of Los Angeles Rams logos, ranked from worst to first ...

 

The Ram Head Logo is clearly a nod to this logo.

The Ram Head Logo is clearly a nod to this logo. 

If "clearly" is "the same general idea", sure. Both are ram heads in a charging position. Except one's at a 3/4th angle and one's in profile, one has black lines and the other does not and one has an open mouth with teeth and a tongue, while the other doesn't even have a mouth at all. Outside of basic things, they're not really all that similar. If it's a nod, it's a loose one at best outside of the yellow horns and both logos being rams.

 

The St. Louis logo is closer to that logo then the new one is. Honestly, something akin to this in the updated blue would've been pretty nice, even without a mouth;

It cleans out the STL-era logo, but keeps the more sports-like feel that logo had.

This ram head looks like he's been eating well while the 1941-82 logos look like they're starving by comparison.

I think this one got it's nose cut off or smooshed. It's like a rabbit and a ram had a baby. Jackrammit.

This logo is better than merely "good".  It's certainly a huge improvement over the last one, the thick-necked roid machine that it was.

I think the best way to describe the new ram head is "Good, but incomplete". I know the horns are the focus, but they really spent no time at all on the face. It's like they just blocked it out to show how the head shape would look with the horns, and the rams signed off on the draft.

Or maybe they didn't want an overly-detailed, fussy logo. 

 

Good designers know when to stop designing, and they made the right choice here, especially considering the possible digital applications.

I does look a lot better embroidered. Makes me want to see it as a jersey patch. 

 

I'm all for the ram head. It's not perfect, but it's far better than the LA. The more pressure the fanbase applies the more the team will likely lean into the ram head. The team even walked back the "LA is the primary logo" bit twenty-four hours after the unveiling.

Whatever else you can say about the logo, that shade of blue is f'n perfect.

The “sol” shade of yellow is wonderful too. They knocked their primary colors out of the park.

This was actually my logo design. This design took me three years to do. I had a hard time deciding between the head looking left or right, but i'm happy with how it looks.
