New Panther logo revealed


New Logo
New logos with various color combinations


(Guys: here's an excellent video from WCNC about the change to the new logo, which includes a shout-out to the "Scott Says" blog).

The Carolina Panthers have altered their logo for the first time in the franchise's 18-year history, making slight refinements to provide what the team called "a more aggressive, contemporary look."

"We have one of the finest and most recognizable logos in the NFL and wanted to make it as modern as possible without losing the dramatic essence of the mark," Panthers President Danny Morrison said.

Left unsaid is how much - if any - the uniforms will change for the 2012 season other than incorporating the new logo into the helmets and jerseys.

Nike has taken over from Reebok as the NFL's official uniform provider for 2012. In conjunction with that move, there have been rumors the Panthers' uniforms will be tweaked by the NFL.

A team spokesman declined comment Sunday night on whether the uniforms would change. But a source close to the team said the uniforms were not expected to be altered dramatically.

The Panthers had not planned to release their new logo Sunday night during the NFL's Pro Bowl game as they ultimately did. But their hand was forced by a picture posted on Facebook by Nike Football and some resulting questions from the Observer.

The Nike Football Facebook page showed 32 pictures of different versions of a new NFL glove produced by Nike, each with an NFL team logo. Instead of the logo the Panthers have used since they began play in 1995, the Nike Panthers gloves carried a logo close to - but not identical - to the new logo the Panthers were getting ready to unveil within the next few days or weeks. To avoid confusion, the Panthers sped up their internal timetable.

The NFL's creative department was responsible for tinkering with the Panthers' logo. The primary changes are in the eyes, whisker and mouth area. The presence of the Panthers' blue color also has become more striking in the logo.

The Panthers plan to transition to the new logo throughout 2012. They also have changed their primary logo typeface.

"It is a cleaner style that is easier to read and should be more applicable to different uses," Morrison said.

(If you want to see a picture of the gloves that started this whole thing, look at the post directly below this one in "Scott Says").



A side-by-side look at the new Carolina Panthers logo (right) and the old one.

"Exclusive" in that Scott has confirmation that indeed the logo is changing, Mr Anonymous #1... That would be the 1st time that the rumor is confirmed, making it indeed an "exclusive"... Perhaps you should learn the definition of the word before you start berating someone else over its use..

Bunch of whining complainers. I don't like the blue lipstick but generally the new logo is a nice alteration of the original logo. It may not have been a necessity but it this isn't bad. (Well, the new font is uninspired, but I'm only talking about the logo for now.)

You're all complaining that traditional teams don't change their logos? The NFL just did the same thing two years ago, updating their dated logo without being too drastic. And yes even long established teams have made far more drastic changes to their logos.

P.S. What lazy eye are you all talking about. That blue is the shadow under the brow. (idiots) This logo is looking more to the side than the old flat straight ahead face was.

Anonymous said...

There are so many things wrong with this logo its not even funny. The mere fact that it has no white lines around it makes it impossible for the logo to stand out when put on a uniform, helmet, field or anywhere else. The overall design is weak and will look dated by the end of the season. The eyes are poorly drawn, the logotype is bland - everything about this screams unprofessional organization. Nice one JR. Now compared to every other team in the league, we have the weakest most borring logo.

Anonymous said...

this looks sloppy and unfinished. like a child did it. So much for my PSLs. The team clearly does not respect the fans.we wanted new uniforms not a horrible new logo.

Anonymous said...

Wow...who knows how they are going to incorporate the new logo...another incident being blown out of whack lol...for all you know they could have something else planned. Yes we see the logo but the rest of the uniform we don't, so we have no idea how things may turn out...it doesn't look bad on a black helmet considering if you look at the design the black will blend and you still see the blue outline of the design...just let it be until all is figured out lol

Panther-fan said...

This wouldn't be the same design team that reinvented the Seahawks, would it? Although I don't see anything wrong with the new logo, please DON'T TOUCH the white uniforms!! I've had many non-Panther fans say that they are one of the best uni's in the NFL and I agree. Too much black equals boring! Keep the silver and white. Look at past Panther photos and imagine the same shot with a player in all black...yuck!

Love it - think this is exactly what the Panthers are about, this is the classy brand that I know! Love the new logotype too, makes sense, not like the Cat Scratch Fever type that we used to have. Go Panthers! This is great.

Loving the new look, hopefully the uniforms get a nice style update as well.

Brad said...

I see mention of the Green Bay, Steelers, Cowboys logos, regarding not needing change. They don't. They are iconic in their design and signature. Much like the historically immediately identifiable marks for CBS, IBM, and more recently, DELL, Apple, etc.

This more contemporary approach to design (as seen in this logo rework) doesn't emphasize the importance of recognition and stability over flash and "what's hot" (or at least what's defined as "hot"....regardless of how temporary it is).

That being said, this logo "updating" does nothing for the brand. I believe it further muddies the icon and will look even more outdated than the previous version did, even more quickly. I think the type aspects are better than before (minus the very odd lines coming off the counters in the "A's," "R's," "P" and "H." Those are odd.....very odd. But the icon has not benefitted from the rework.....not necessarily worsened, just not better in any way shape or form. It doesn't look "finished." I fear it probably is, but it doesn't look like it is. Some of the elemental relationships and such look odd.

I think we had one of the better unis in the league in the black ones. This just looks terrible... No way im buying anything with this 'arena league' logo on it.

JR just cant seem to do anything right the past few years. Leave the logo alone!!! You wanna sell merchandise? WIN some &%#* football games!

I like this new logo. The slight small changes really do make the Panther look more intimidating and bad-ass. I like the new shade of blue too. I always that "turquoise" blue was sort of weak. Great job! Can't wait to see the new jersey's.

Geez... Either there's one grumpy person posting anonymous over and over or people need to relax.

This is hardly much of a logo change. It's similar to the change the Falcons made a few years ago. Most people won't even notice who aren't panthers fans.

The old Panther font was hidious. I don't expect too many changes on the uniform either. The update logo looks a lot cleaner. The people complaining need to get a grip.

I can't believe everyone is hating so bad. It isn't that different to the average person. People that don't follow the Panthers would barely notice a difference.

It kind of reminds me of the change the Lions made a couple of years ago.

That new logo is about as impressive as the Pro Bowl was last night. Unfortunately, us fans continue to pay through the nose for stupid things like changes in Logos and a "Powder-Puff" football game in which the "best???" players play in at the end of the year. How about taking all that money.....for Logo changes, the "tag" foofball game we saw last night, the cost to fly the players and families out to Hawaii and hotel & meal expenses and reduce ticket prices. How about doing something for the fans instead of taking from them all the time!

I'm a Pats fan (Suuuuper Bowl, BABYBEE), not Panthers, but IMHO the new logo is a definite improvement - a stronger 3D aspect, cleaner, better image. They'll probably update the font currently used for "Carolina Panthers" too.

Not a "new" logo, but definitely an improvement. I also doubt the uniforms will change much either. Not a big deal, people!

So we've trimmed the cat's whiskers a little and rounded his sharp edges. Even the jaw is softer. Is this a new, softer version of the Panthers? Nothing about this looks stronger or more ferocious. Even the new font looks sterile. Maybe the NFL is going to go with "flag" football too rather than tackle.

It is a little cleaner looking but it has the same problem as the old logo. Why show the panther's neck? It has always looked odd to show the mascot with its neck just cut off at the bottom like it's a Greek bust. I'd rather just see the badass head of the animal or its entire body. Maybe they don't want to look like the Jags.

Guys: It's Scott Fowler. On the side-by-side pictures at the bottom of this blog post, note that the blue color did NOT change from old to new logo. In the "old logo" picture we had posted there for awhile, the blue seemed to look a little washed out, which likely led to some of the comments above wondering if the blue changed. The Panthers say it did not and have shipped me the one posted now to make sure people can tell that. Thanks for reading, Scott

^ That cat definitely isn't scared. My cat puts his ears back when he's pissed or defensive. And it's not like they just changed it to where the ears were back, they were like that in the old logo too. Same as the bottom jawline people are complaining about, it hasn't been altered except for being rounded. I think it's a sweet "new" logo, and I hope to see it on a black helmet. I'd like to see a pointed blue stripe down the middle similar to the one Denver has on theirs. all in all, although it may not have been entirely necessary, I like it.

For all who are conplaining about it having a lazy eye... In case you aren't living ur life in a 3 dimensional visual world, that is the 3rd dimension(depth) that makes it appear to be a lazy eye. The old logo was outdated. Many teams have and will change they're logos. With nike becoming the nfl's uniform maker, it was a great time to change it. I can guarantee carolina will have new uniforms next year via the new logo and nike. Take it all in stride ya'll

I don't care about the fact that they CHANGED the logo, it's the fact that unless you are blind, this logo was terrible from the start. It was conceived in the 90s and still has a very 90's feel to it. The old one and the new one are both outdated! The fonts are both terrible too. It looks like a NASCAR, cheesy logo and font. Even Nike can't save this teams horrible jerseys. They don't need a NEW logo, they need a completely DIFFERENT logo.

Anonymous said...

An improvement, yes. But I would have gone with a whole new direction. This has always looked to similar to the Patriots logo. The Pats logo has a reason for resembling a flag (battle flag, revolutionary war). There is NO GOOD REASON for the Panthers logo to be in a curvy triangle shape. Ugh.

It's not all that bad I think. It'll obviously take some getting used to because the panthers have never had a logo change or a uniform change (at least not a drastic one). The new uniform came out today and overall I think it looks nice.

Btw, it's not a lazy eye or lipstick. Whoever said that just doesn't have the eye to see what they were getting that.

I seem to remember reading that the reason the original logo included the Panther's neck was because both the head and neck was suppose to resemble the shapes of North and South Carolina put together. Can someone confirm that? Overall, I like the changes in this new version, giving the face more depth than before. Not crazy about the new typeface, though. It may be easier to read, but the serif face, even with the modifications, just doesn't "pop" enough for me. Should've included some black to be more consistent with the logo.

I most live in another world, they changed the logo last year adding the Jay Leno Chin to the cat, and after the first season the team changed the font from a classic footbal font to the wwf font they have used up intil now. So no this is not the first logo change.
