The post the logo design community have been waiting for . . .

SA brand

I heard that the South Australian Government had released a new logo on the radio.  It was a bit of a talking point. So I wondered about it. Wondered if I wouldn’t like it much and get to like it – like the Commonwealth Bank’s one, or would just think it was a silly waste of time – like ANZ’s more recent logo. BHP Billiton’s new logo of an only slightly more recent vintage to the Commonwealth Bank’s one was pretty neat I thought when I saw it and still do.

Well, I was pleasantly surprised.  Quite nice. Still I know that the really smart design money comes to Troppo, not so much to find out what I think – important as that is – but to check into the extraordinary hive-mind that is Clugb Troppo.

So I didn’t want to disappoint them.

SA logo designs

Coming back to this page, the old logo doesn’t seem to be being served up any more – at least from the site I copied it from. So here’s another image of it – surrounded by alternatives. NG

Its a sad thing, watching an old government dying.

Does it look like there is a size magnification going on with the extent of SA?
Q’ld has not only been shrunk but is burdened with an extra dark hue ……
and has been folded away from the rest of the country.
SA – the free settler colony – always needing to reminding us they are different.
The white areas are good though – lots of nothing going on there I hear.
Oh and is Clug Troppo the arts and crafts subdivision?

Hmm, that is that grey stuff with the funny smell that looks like snot?
Had you been older, you might have felt emboldened to get high sniffing it, but as many a teenager would tell you, clag is not the real deal as to that purpose.

I was warned that sniffing airfix glue would result in a spitfire stuck to my nose- I was too scared to try it>

The darkened North Queensland represents the loss of money from fiscal equalisation into the money-pit of South Australia.

I’m a Victorian, I have no dog in this argument – it’s just what I see.

Down here, we tend to see it from the other trajectory…we see ourselves under attack from the barbaric minerals barons and sleek macbankers, pulling a heist again, on the most transparently flimsy of alibis.
We not into inbreeding like the Tasmanians, or sheep-shagging, like the lot across the Tasman- why the attack on our viability.
We are not folk who deludedly see themselves as the hub of global civilisation and empire like Sydneysiders or Victorians, or people who build our homes in creek beds, like Queenslanders, so that we can free new carpeting every two years.
Yes, God bless Adelaide; Home of the Free (complementary ticket to the local pizzeria).

They released a new logo on the radio? Seems appropriate I suppose. What is it meant to be – SA the origami state?

Hate to say this (being from SA), but it looks like SA, the “L” plate state. And they can’t even hang it the right way up.
