I don't think I need to explain that. With the greatest respect, just because it's on a fans memorial doesn't mean it's not a horrible childish  picture 

With the greatest respect if it was all these things it would never have been done. Not one person has ever made the points you have.

Ok, I really don't want to fall out with anyone over it.  Maybe my opinion was a bit strong, but I simply don't like it.  I appreciate to people might, so I'm genuinely sorry if it caused offense.

Ok, I’ve had enough of clever people on paint etc, I can’t do anything like that so I got the Sharpies out, well one step up from Crayloa. This is a VERY rough idea, cos I can’t be arsed to do it again. Sorry about colours as I did it in black biro first then coloured over so look weird and of course the sizing is wrong. But it’s relatively simple, and SL does love his stadium...

Incase anyone thinks this is a serious attempt, it isn’t so insult away :laugh:

I wondered if the stadium was to be used in the new badge, it is a symbol that appears on a number of things already

It's a thumbs up from me

Personally, I hope that Jon doesn't forget a nod to our street art heritage, just like they did to great effect with the comic sans training top from last season.

Because that bit of design went down a storm.

Maybe ask Banksy to make one in the form of a easy simple stencil - see what he comes up with (does he have a ego, wouldn't want to upset him if we think it's crap and don't use it) or would it be to "capitalist" for him -

A couple of tweeks  and I think we have a winner,change the red at the bottom to a muddy River Avon brown,and put three stars across the top, to signify the number of piss pot trophy wins.

Are you really that upset that some people don’t like your designs? Deary me

Not at all, I honestly am used to it. That said, why should I accept childish insults? I do like these forums but saying someone artwork looks like it's done by a 12 year old when time and effort has put into it is a pretty shitty attitude to have. 

I'll never understand sum people on these forums as they can be very quick to insult the club but when the fans try to get together and produce something we can be proud of to submit to the club you have that small minority who would rather throw childish insults for some "forum reputation boost" 

When this club ultimately drops its new design and it is awful the only people we'll have to blame is ourselves because rather than banding together and trying to create something we're all happy with we resort to childish arguing and 1-up-manship. 

I can accept people not looking my designs, what I don't want to have to accept is a badge like Leeds put out only for Bristol Sport to stick with it as they know their is no pleasing the fans.

Why waste your time in the first place?

The club have never come out and asked people to design a badge for the club

I think half the problem is that a Robin in predominantly brown, and brown is quite a dated colour. It’s a hard colour to get excited about unless you go with the copper gold tones. Grey has had a revival, but not brown so much. Shame we haven’t got a golden anniversary or something coming up.

Gold is a cracking shout. To be fair, that was what i was aiming for, but I'm literally using a more modern version of paint haha

Well done Badg, that's not a bad effort at all.

Would look good with a gold star in the bridge arch, if anybody asked what it represented we could tell them to mind their own business!

Or a gold star for each year we've been above the Sags.

That'll do it.  In fact, don't bother with the crest, just have the stars.

That'll be unique!

I’d agree but just the robin without the BC.

Perhaps a surreptitious release to gauge informal opinion when largely decision made? 

Could be wrong but did cross my mind.

It's not class though and is broken.

And these many people, I wouldn't trust as forward thinking.

I think you might be right.

Not keen on it, though. I'd much prefer the robin/Suspension Bridge badge - if any badge is iconic for Bristol City it's that one.

I see that as a pigeon not a Robin though, but yes I think you are right as this image has been used in the background by the club for a while now.

At the end of the day...whatever the Club choose, it won't please everyone. In the same way fans are divided with our present crest.

It would be interesting to know how much the cost will be to rebrand and replace every present crest at the Club and Academy etc.

The best 'modern' rebrand I've seen in recent years is the Juventus one.

I didn't like it at first...but it really works.

So I just spent a little time with Magic Man's concept (which is great and has been received well) and made a few changes, one suggested by @BS4 on Tour... about the Robin facing the Mem and my own change to make the Bridge easily identifiable by those who do not realise what it is.

I also included the design in a few colour schemes that it may be used with:

KNfVSgv.png

The best one I’ve seen so far is the 3rd one down.

That needs the least work I’ve seen. The bridge is perfect imo, I like the way the ball slots in nicely under the Robin and the year established.

The Robin needs a little work and possibly the colouring, but apart from that, that’s spot on.

Absolutely.

Just hope this survey was legitimate and a decision wasn’t already made.

I like to think I’m not asking a lot but if it features a Robin, bridge, football, est and Bristol City FC, then I’ll be over the moon. 

What else can it really be? The club want something that has ‘identity’ and represents City..

Nothing like Palace to me.....on the same thought, lots of other clubs wear red.....does our kit scream out Man Utd to you? Perhaps we should not wear red anymore....

No, but I’ve read posts on here saying things like ‘lots of clubs are called the robins, we need something unique, we shouldn’t have a robin on our badge’...but in the same way, lots of clubs wear red, it’s not unique to us....should we change that?

So the suggested badge looks like a robin to you? 

If the suggested badge wasn’t red and you saw a glimpse of it, I’m sure many would shout ‘Palace’

Do robins have eyebrows? And are they always angry eyebrows? I’m not saying I want our robin to be happy, but maybe neutral rather than angry!

anyway, come on people. This our chance to be heroes.

Exactly

The club don't want supporters to design a badge, you'd have to be very naive to think they have not sorted one already and are just doing their usual lip service for the fan base

It's as sad as the annual kit designs people do every summer

BUT if people want to waste their time, let them carry on!
