In the past few months, not only many football teams have introduced new logos - most of the big companies updated their visual identities to match better the digital age.

3D effects were a think of the early 2000sIn fact, some of the current football logos have styles that are surely out of date - mainly 3D effects.

Lots Of Football Sponsors Release New Logos

Atalanta BC



The Atalanta Bergamo logo was last updated in 1983 - the removal of the inner circle and a larger head would enhance the look.



FC Barcelona



The club already wanted to update their crest in 2018 - the elements itself (St. George's cross, Catalan flag, Blaugrana stripes) and shape would all have been kept, but the fans protested against the removal of the FCB lettering.



We think that a small update of the crest would work wonders - see the concept below, which greatly keeps the iconic design while adapting to the "new technologies".



Chelsea



Chelsea could remove the shadow effect of the lion and it would look better - just as it is on the kits.

Liverpool FC



Liverpool's branding has been inconsistent since they opted just for LFC crest instead of the regular club logo. We like the current club logo, however, so we do not think an update is needed in terms of design.



SS Lazio



Lazio's crest has some great elements but the ratio of them just are not perfect. A new logo boasting the eagle could look much better.

FC Porto



FC Porto's crest is one of those logos that feature a 3D gradient effect and a general early 2000s style. We think an update would be appropriate.

Paris Saint-Germain



There is nothing wrong with the PSG logo for us except one thing - the 3D gradient effect...

Manchester United (Not In Last 16)



Last updated in 1998, Manchester United's iconic crest includes some gradient designs and design styles that just look outdated. We think an updated crest could look better - their kits already come without all those gradient effects, and already with that it actually looks better.
