The colours of the logo, the city's first, are meant to represent the colours of the city, including the waterfront and parks.


Ok, so I guess that's the blue and the green covered, no mention of the other colours. I think what we have here is a perfect example of making shit up on the spot.

45k really isn't a lot of money in the grand scheme of things, folks.

I don't think it's so much about the amount of money, it's about the quality of what they got for that money

unfortunately we live in a capitalist world where everything (yep, cities included) needs to be branded in order to enhance self-promotion and encourage investment and development.

Cardiff's expanding rapidly and the re-branding will help to bring in a lot more money and investment than it has cost, in the long term.

the problem for WAG is that they're damned if they do, damned if they don't.

I don't really care about the price of it, it's just fucking shit. It's meant to represent a City with history and culture. This logo is befitting of a call centre, which, metaphorically, is what Cardiff is fast becoming.

how do you represent history and culture in a logo though? and without using either:

1. gothic-style font
2. a pic of a daffodil
3. a pic of a dragon
4. a pic of a neanderthal swigging from a pint of Brains
5. a mine
6. a choir

?

and making it snappy and visually-appealling, whilst also addressing both ideals of "distinctive cultural history" as well as "modern, forward-moving city"?

If only it could have ditched the stereotype of 'being utterly backwards' by dropping the unneeded Welsh translation. Dragons: Cool. Welsh Language: Rubbish.


that is utterly RACIST, surely?

If you'd said that about any other culture or race surely all the circle knee jerkers would come out and start bleating.

come on scenester fuckwits that don't go to gigs or support your local SEEN except when there's some trendy band or YOUR band playing or you've got something to SELL... GET BLEATING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Although lets face it, most Welsh people don't actually give a fuck about the Welsh language. Can the Welsh be racist against the Welsh? Are the Welsh even a race??

Well I don't agree with Jay's dislike of the Welsh language but it is not racist, lets not forget that alot of people in South Wales feel that Welsh has been forced upon them and that changing street names and street signs is a loss of history and a waste of money, he might be right about the uneeded trasnlation, but i would prefer the official name to be the Welsh one seeing as it's generally accepted that is where the English version originates. When you going to chnage your name back? you look like a right coc oen.

tell me, if he said 'Bangladeshi annoys the fuck out of me, it's shit', or any other language, what would you say? If you're gonna be all knee-jerk, at least be consistent. How come it's okay to diss the/Welsh?

RACIST SYMPATHISER!!!!
