The Carolina Pantherspowerful consistent running backs and back-breaking defense earned them a standing of 12-4 in the regular season. Though their efforts as a team paid off, a few improvements wouldn’t hurt them and might just take them to the Super Bowl next season.

First off they must address their roster of players by choosing the right key athletes in the upcoming draft. One would be Brandon Coleman who’s big enough to cross the middle and up the seam without going down on a big hit.

Speaking of new players, strategies and things coming the Panthers way, today they released their new logo inspired by the Spanish “La Liga” Real Madrid.

Making a logo takes time, research, determination and courage to go above the drowning pressure you’ll have on your shoulder.

difficult

Making a logo is complicated and critical to the success of the official stamp of your company.

 

Logo overtime has been a staple representation of one’s services and products and to choose a logo that would best represent these is crucial to the imprint of the logo on the minds of the people.

 

What happens in the real world is people just take one look at your logo and it’s up to your creativity and logo design to let it last a lifetime.

 

It’s really customers and fans that make or break the success of a logo.

 

Through the years logo designers have struggled and sometimes may need  a collaboration of another designer or a team of designers to come up with a unique, interesting and long-lasting logo.

 

But what if there’s a FREE tool who can take away all your logo designing blues and woes.

Black + Decker

Black & Decker got lost in brand translation as they shared their name license to GE products. This year they’re taking a bold move by stripping the iconic hexagonal “nut” which has been in the logo for over a 100 years and switching the “ampersand” to a “plus” sign signifying POSITIVITY.

 

Caterham

The new Caterham leans to a greener color and the Union flag emblem signifies the “proud British heritage” the company  has. This new brand aims to fulfill their commitment of FUN in all of their associated businesses like Caterham Technology & Innovation (CTI), Caterham Composites, Caterham Bikes, Caterham Moto Racing Team, Caterham Challenge and the F1 and GP2 race teams.

The New HUGE logo uses a new serif font, the Galaxie Copernicus for the body of the text. In HUGE’s official website a series of “H” flags made up of  icons representing their clients are also featured.

 

I’m willing to bet more companies are gonna do the same trick as the year enfolds.

Is it going to be Denver or Seattle this year?

Super-Bowl-XLVIII-Logo

Logo:

Last year the Super Bowl XLVIII logo was revealed and the magnificent logo shows off the Vince Lombardi Trophy at the front and center with the big silver roman numerals below it. A few things they included this year is the Manhattan skyline, the new World Trade Center and the MetLife Stadium.

Location:
The MetLife Stadium has  been chosen to host the Bowl this year  and can hold upto 85, 000 people. The chance of rain or snow next Sunday, February 2, 2014 is a big concern for organizers, although there are 200 private suites that can keep spectators cozy and warm, there are many who can’t afford these suites and would watch the game bench side or back home in their tvs?
