The Canberra Raiders have revitalised their logo and brand ahead of what is a new era for the club in 2020 and beyond. The Raiders have reworked their logo with the updated logo contemporising the current Viking head, wordmark, typeface and colours.

“We’re excited to share these brand updates. It’s been 20 years since the Raiders logo was last updated,” said CEO Don Furner.

It's a nice evolutionary change for the logo. As per their presentation, it's a lot more versatile.

I’ve always found the green beard a bit weird... and now it’s navy and green! I think it actually looks better as a single colour. But I don’t mind it, looks more modern, good evolution as you say.

I'm OK with Greenbeard. Might even use it for my username before it becomes part of Lucy's portfolio.

Was this the same logo that GE ran a thread about earlier in the year?
It looks the same from my memory

I feel even more strongly about it now than i did then, the OG logo always, id be great if they went back to that, thought i accept they never will.... but this one is substancially better than the last one imo

Yes it’s the same logo they’ve been using on the supporters gear.

I’ve had a few beers but unless I see them side by side I can’t see a whole lot of difference

Hmm ok. More lime green and a final break with the "moss green" era I approve of.

New font- ok, the Canberra looks better but I find the RAIDERS but doesn't stand out as well, it's hard to look at.

Thing about a logo like the viking head is that the colour it is placed on provides all the context and contrast so it's hard to judge a mock up image, without seeing it on something real.

In general, the message seems to be "we are Raiders, we are lime green". I approve. Next!

Yeesh, average update for an average logo for a team with an average record playing under it. I've posted this article before, but i really think we need to follow suit with Golden State and just update our original logo. Whether it's old fashioned or not is secondary to the pride, history and success the og represents.

The new Raiders font looks pretty crap IMO. The tweaks in the logo are good I guess. Quite effective with a limited colour palette. Other than that, the changes are barely noticeable.

Thanks GE I was wondering what the difference was.

I like the new one better but I also really like the old one. I am glad they havent changed the viking, I really like the old viking too.

The logo was in a much needed freshen up. I never really like the 3 tone beard. reminds me of the OZemail 2000 jersey. It’s not a bad thing. Just time to more on
