The Carolina Panthers new logo is HERE

Recommended Posts

It looks like a panther giving someone a dirty look over it's shoulder. I'll blame that on the way it's printed on the gloves. Considering this is Nike we're talking about, this upgrade is pretty tame. I like it.

I'll say nice upgrade, not 100% awesome, but it gets the job done and brings the panthers into the 21st century.

I love leaks. Very Arizona Cardinals-esque update (that's a compliment).

It certainly looks interesting, with the potential to be an upgrade, but I'm gonna reserve judgement until we can get a side-by-side comparison of old and new.

Dig the eyes...

The lower jaw bugs me a little bit, but for now, at first glance... solid

Awesome!! I thought they would never update it, so I'm glad they did.

Now, let's hope it won't be accompanied by a super genetic wordmark, like the Jaguars.

I'm also getting a very Detroit Lions vibe in terms of updates.

Fairly underwhelmed if you ask me. They could've done a lot better considering how beautifully rendered some of the more recent logos are done (Falcons, Cardinals, Texans, Seahawks, Lions, Jaguars, and others are what I'm talking about). So many inconsistant line-weights really ruin it for me, otherwise I would've liked it alot. What's up with the ears and neck? Why does the blue outline stop (same thing with the right side of its face)? It makes no sense to me, it just looks so mediocre.

I would've just handed to job to someone like Verlander...or heck, call up Davidon or Brandon Moore and try to work something out with their renderings.

It's just okay to me. I was thinking they'd update it a little more, but they created some issues in the process-- namely that lower jaw area. It's really bothering me.

It kinda looks like he's got a reverse hogan-handle bar mustache, but I'm excited to see what else is changed.

A quick trace in Illustrator, trying my best to eliminate the curves of the hands and fingers, yields this:

There are definitely parts of this I really like and parts I really don't. I'm gonna tweak the bits I'm sour on and see how it could have looked.
