Crystal Palace Reveal New Badge Design
Wed 8th May 2013 | Marketing & PR
Crystal Palace Football Club have revealed a new club crest which combines its heritage and history, whilst bringing it up to date with a fresh clean design.
The new badge was revealed last night at the club’s annual awards night.
Co-chairman Steve Parish is pleased with the new design, stating: “When we put a number of badges to vote a year ago we received a real cross section of opinion and have taken these views on board.
"The badge has been designed by one of our supporters, Dan Mulcahy, assisted by the designers at CHI and partners and Robert Deacon in the club’s own design studio. We would like to thank them all, especially Dan, who has worked tirelessly to get this produced.
“I see this change as more evolution than revolution, as it was important to keep the heritage of the past. The towers, glass building and eagle have been included, but the badge brought up to date using the latest techniques and design styles, we have also added the year we were founded as this was requested by the fan base.
“The new badge has been designed to be able to be used in different ways. The crest will be seen with a shield in a ‘coat of arms format’ around the stadium, without a shield on the club kit, on training wear and in the media, as well as a simplified version for some casual clothing and merchandise.
"This new design will re-produce much better than the old line drawing, featuring a stronger more dynamic eagle that brings our club image into the 21st Century.”
