Oh, I didn't realize they had a new logo, although I noticed it on TLF a couple of days ago. I thought it was just on TLF ^^'

Anyway, time will tell whether we will get accustomed to the new flat design version; for now I am not the biggest fan but it depends on its size and the background. For instance on the https://www.lotuscars.com banner I think it's OK.
By the way, they directly use a vectorized SVG version! Quite nice for any artwork!

Agreed! I was thinking it looks like the Spanish cleaner has had a go at touching it up.

To me, the new logo looks like an emoji dreamed up by a marketing type :smt120 ... while the old logo looks like it was created by engineers! :burnout:

You mean as in a new (as of February 2019) marketing director Simon Clare who was recently seen in Norwich?

Not a fan of the new logo. It is not elegant.

Dreadful, change for the sake of change. Text straight across when the lower edge is curved is such a poor design. If the cars start leaving Hethel with badges like that I'll expect owners to start changing them for the old ones. I noted that the Evija still has a "proper badge"..

When I look at the colours again it does look more like someone at Norwich City designed it. The yellow is a distinct canary yellow rather than Norfolk mustard

And, unless I'm mistaken, aren't NC known as The Canaries ? Maybe Delia Smith is on the board of Directors at Hethel ?

PS at least the half time pies at Carrow Road should be of good quality ;-)
