A Message from John Abele, Chairman, FIRST Board of Directors [Logo Update Message]

Direct from http://www.usfirst.org/JALogoUpdateMessage.htm

To be honest I realized on thing that was a little odd. They now have to go through every single piece of clothing they are selling and change the logo. Not only that but three quater’s of the cothing isn’t even legal by First standards because the colors have been changed.

I never had a problem with the new logo’s changes in typography or shading. It’s the shape which fails to move me. I think it looks less refined, more cartoonish, and much less balanced.

Mr. Abele has adequately justified the new text and color. Nobody has yet addressed the reason for the new overall shape, though.

Mr. Abele, you have made my day. :slight_smile:

I agree, I like the fact that FIRST is updating their logo, but I think they could have done a better job at keeping it professional-looking. The new logo doesn’t carry the same weight as the old one did to me. It just seems more childish…I don’t know, maybe I’m just antichange but…I don’t like it too much. :-\
