Killer B’s… or I hope Belfast thinks it was worth £180,000 when it looks at Blackburn (£60,000) and Barrow. July 31, 2008

Reading the Guardian today I was struck by a strange sense of deja vu, and doing a bit of browsing I realised why.

A couple of weeks back it was reported that Belfast had a new logo. Here it is, a heart tipped on its side to make a B, and very nice too in a bland sort of a way. A cool £180,000 was spent on it.

But… coincidentally Barrow had a logo designed for it earlier this year, and as the Guardian reports today so did Blackburn. Strangely familiar I think we can see. The cost of the Blackburn logo was £60,000 according to this piece which joined the dots a bit earlier.

Nowhere is it mentioned apart from there about the three logos being identical. Indeed doesn’t it say something that in all the pieces on the Blackburn/Barrow logos nobody thought to mention the Belfast one, or vice versa.
