ABC Logo Concept

Got an idea and whipped this up.

I figure it keeps everything that's familiar about the current logo, but makes it look more like a "retro" stylistic choice rather than a relic.

With both concepts, the first thing which came to mind for me was the bumper when watching a movie at a General Cinema.

Damn...I worked there...my first job, back when it looked like this.

I still have a business card with that logo on it. And that music...the da da da da da da daaa-da daaa-da beginning followed by the snare drum thing. Must have heard that a thousand times in my career there. Some of the bad attitude types dubbed the company "General Enema." :D

But I'm sure you mean this updated version:

I'm not sure how I feel about this, personally I think ABC is bit of question mark, because the way its set up its hard to change the icon, making it "retro" to me is a bit of a downgrade, modernizing this logo would atcually make more sense, but overall I see the proportions of this image off, a lot of negative space.

That is a brilliant logo. Why would they go from that to something so generic?

It looks like a choad to me...

Well, that is obviously what the designer intended, but it also happens to look like this:

I'd be interested in seeing a modern version of the abc logo. Curious what you have in mind.

I just chose a generic font, I think maybe moving ABC would change it while keeping it still the circle.

^^^

reminds me too much of the NCAA logo and the Alltel logo.

at any rate, I don't think a change like that is necessary. what the OP did was near perfection as it didn't provide a total change, but cleaned it up in a way where the logo could have even been the original that withstood the test of time.

I agree with that, I suppose I was just generalizing that, I personally like the ABC current logo. and I dont know i feel about a retrosizing of the logo. All and all thats just me.
