    The applications are very on trend - using the logo as a framing device. You see that a lot and it’s pretty much how I figured the logo would be used. I feel like they could have done most of what they set out to do with the rebrand with the existing Telstra Premiership logo, albeit tweaked a little.

    It looks fine, I guess. I feel like dumping the existing Telstra Premiership logo is a waste, though. It doesn’t make sense having a completely different shield to everything else, despite their explanation.

    Love it or hate the new branding, we seem to be moving away from logos with the clubs wordmark, which is an excellent thing

    I think the original NRL logo doubled as a competition logo for the first two seasons with no premiership sponsor.

    But yeah - either way the Tele have missed a bunch and confused fans in the process.

    Mostly on club websites, in membership materials and social/videos etc I imagine. Club logos themselves will still be used by clubs as normal.

    There was the one in 2012 but it only seemed to appear late in the year then was replaced by the new logo set anyway.

    This has been my favourite NRL logo (even though it is the same competition logo as the 2007-2012 period). Loved everything about the combination.

    While it was the badge on the jerseys, I believe it was only ever there because the Telstra Premiership logo wasn't approved in time. The official premiership logo was still the one in use up until this year.

    Not sure if this pic has been posted yet,

    Overall, I don't actually mind the new logo at all to be honest. While I loved the old one, I like how this new one looks very sleek and sophisticated. The fact that it is going to be coloured to match the club colours on jerseys is absolutely fantastic too.

    However, I feel like they've really missed the mark with a few aspects of it. For one, a big miss is that without the wordmark, it is not instantly recognisable as an NRL logo and to someone that doesn't follow Rugby League, they'd have no idea what it is. The other big miss, which has already been mentioned, is the way the wordmark has been integrated. It will look sweet on jerseys like Souths, Cronulla and the Panthers but how the hell are the likes of the Roosters Dragons and possibly Storm supposed to integrate that without it looking shabby?

    Overall, I think I like it though.

    The new logo looks like it is going to be a mess on more complicated jersey designs. I threw together a Wests Tigers concept tonight based on our membership kit items and it certainly makes it difficult to fit on a design when there is more than one colour for it to sit on (especially the text below the logo).

    [​IMG]

    Designs with hoops or vertical stripes will be ok if the logo is on one of them (stripes) or sits with part on one hoop and part on the other, but V's or any complicated design will be a far larger challenge, if not done properly the text will be lost in the design (unless it sits on a blocked background).

    Correct. They were still negotiating the contract with Telstra and the clubs needed to print their jerseys etc and couldn't wait, so they ran with the corporate logo on all jerseys in 2013.

    They won't be that smart..

    Changes like this are a big call to me..

    Unless you can print in on actual 16 jerseys and have them sitting on the board room table in Moore park...

    And have them been seen by a poeple for feedback..

    I'm not sure how you change to this

    On the broncos jerseys. It’s appearing on a few fan forums now. General opinion is split. But one of the ‘leakers’ is apparently pretty accurate.

    The opinion seems to be they are real but concept designs waiting approval/new logos etc

    Which brings me back to my point. Given how off those logos on the leak look, whoever did them up should try something other than MS paint.

    When they embroid the new logo onto supporter jerseys, will they embroid the outline of the logo plus the text separately, or just embroid a big patch?
