In 2017 the new design for Brentford FC is “simpler, bolder and more recognizable” than the previous crest while remaining true to The Bees’ heritage, says Article co-founder, Joe Ryrie.
The studio was briefed by the club to design a crest that would work effectively across a range of digital and physical applications – including app icons and the entrance of the new stadium – in full color, single-color, and a standalone graphic element.
