Sturt's Desert Pea is fantastic (symbolically and graphically). No idea why Bank SA got rid of it.
x 1000.

Would love to see it incorporated.
Yep, has my vote.
And mine.

I started this particular concept last year when this topic came up. My photoshopping skills aren't that great, so I kinda put it to the side for a while until now.

This is just a concept if we wanted to go for a more roundel logo. The font is from our current badge, which looks horrible IMO and it could also be a tad smaller, but just for the sake of trying to transfer something from the old badge to the new I used this font.

I'm sure a pro graphic designer would do a 100% better, but just as a concept it works well.

Image

It keeps reminding me of the Crows which I'm not too happy with. I might give it another go tomorrow, maybe even attempt a traditional shield type badge.
A magpie that reminds everyone of a crow. You could be on to something there...

We've all grown with the current logo, but as the club matures and as we mature as fans, it's definitely time for a positive and fresh change.

I'd definitely support a logo change and can try my hand at putting something together also. We'll find the balance and come up with something based around a few principles. Can we please list all the elements we want in it?

- Red to be the dominant colour, with some black, then yellow and blue.
- Change of font.
- But keep key elements in place.
- 'Classical' look: i.e. a circular shape or something more symmetrical.
- Incorporate Sturt's Desert Pea.
- Incorporate the Piping Shrike.

Red definitely needs to feature more than i had in my badge. I used the official state colours but if not used properly it just looks like a state team logo or something for the Adelaide Crows.
Theres nothing wrong with using the colours as well as the piping shrike to add our some state features, but we also have our own identity. We are the reds, not just a state rep team if that makes sense.

I also tried to incorporate the shape of the shield from our state coat of arms.

There are also elements from the Adelaide coat of arms that could be used, for example the wall/fortress element that sits a top of the shield.

I quite like your badge, but can see where you're coming from. It'll be a positive challenge to not overdesign it. I'm no graphic design expert, but I do enjoy whipping stuff up occasionally. Sometimes I'll hit a brainwave and do something great.

Basically I'll put mine around a few key principles: not too many images, if any at all; not too busy and a proportionate colour scheme. I'll probably use Canva.com to put it together.

I like some of the Italian oval badge designs as well which i think would give a unique look for an Australian club.

I've never used Canva before, easy to use?

So do I. I'll be looking at good logos but also odd ones too.

Yep, Canva is pretty easy when you get the hang of it. Sign up, create an account and use all the free stuff on there - there's also content you can buy. Awesome resource.

Finished off some quick ones based of Parma's badge.

These concepts came up as I was just playing around seeing how some elements from Adelaide's coat of arms/flag could be incorporated.

Image

I ditched the piping shrike in the second one. Not a fan of how I interlaced the AUFC letters, but the general idea is still there. I also added the castle wall feature seen a top of the coat of arms.

I kinda like 1836 appearing somewhere on the coat of arms as a parochial south aussie.

Although it coukd be somewhat offensive to some and i totally understand.

personally i would rather the logo stay a more even spread of red, yellow and blue and our kit go back the something more like the NSL season kit.

I do like those parma inspired styles though, and i always thought a badge based on the Fulham style would look ok.

I guess similar reasons to why some people do not like Australian Day.
