You know you're a logo snob when...

Recommended Posts

I was on twitter yesterday when the REDBLACKS and CFL twitter feed posted a picture of a guy who took a 28" saw blade and turned it into the new logo... My first instinct when I saw it was the teeth are the wrong way, the guy put the logo on the wrong face and had the teeth of the blade backwards... So I pointed it out... lol

Just wondering if I am the only 'logo snob" out there or has anyone done something similar

You begin to have a panic attack whenever you see this atrocity on actual merchandise: (backstory...I actually do have an anxiety disorder, and one time while jogging I saw a girl wearing a cap with this logo on it and literally almost had a true panic attack. I had a terrible urge and regret from not telling her her hat was clearly fake. I laughed at myself later)

It was rendered by someone the year the logo was released, hit the front page of Google search and then thrown into a ton of graphics by secondary "designers", hobbyists, and even picked up by crappy, counterfeit companies.

The NFL, as far as I know, hasn't used this in any way.

I can spot those Reebok fake "authentic" NFL jerseys a mile away and when I point out to people it is fake they get pissed at me.

When you hate hearing other people's 'uneducated' opinions on really, really, good logos.

Sighing every time I see "authentic" Colorado Avalanche jerseys with the wrong name-on-back font when I go to the games.

Refusing to buy a cap when the button is the wrong colour. The cap in question:

Note the red button. I only ever find ones with a blue button.

What drives me crazy is that the people wearing them think they are real. Sorry, you're not going to get any kind of authentic jersey for $40. I almost feel bad for them.

I feel like such a snob with all of my friends about any of this and I hate it. Like a hipster or something.

Our high school colors range from navy/white, navy/orange, navy/gold, royal/gold, royal/orange, or navy/yellow and whenever anybody says anything related to our colors, like "what are our colors anyway?" or something I just get so worked up like they're some idiot.

Or when I go to a Redskins game with friends I'll always have to point out the other teams uniforms, sometimes its fun, and my friends actually like when I mention... oh I don't know, the white stripe on the Bengals pants or the fact that black pants with black socks look horrible, but I'll usually go overboard.

im pretty sure it was in a media guide last year (Titans maybe?) and was in an on-air package. the falcons creative team were tweeting about it

You know you're a logo snob when Buffaslug makes you have a heart attack while others are oblivious.

I have on ebay. Got an authentic Twins jersey for 25 bucks (with the Target Field Inaugural Season Patch to boot!) It's possible to dupe a few sellers.

When you first notice that new logo for a company on TV and you want to beat everyone here in posting it.

I got on my girlfriend's nerves because I wouldn't let it go that Florida's women softball team uses the old gator (light green chin) and old wordmark still. I mean maybe softball was too low down on the list to get their jerseys upgraded but it was still irritating (even though it's better). You can't see the side patch in this pic but here's the wordmark

I'm a logo snob when I have an orgasm over seeing unique event logos (All-Star Games, playoffs, championship series).

When every time you see another company rebrand to yet another version of the same lower-case/sans-serif scheme, you can't help but crumple a little inside.
