Miriam Lord skewered that last one. She was at the launch and wrote about the build-up and the deflation when the button was pressed or the screen pulled back or whatever and the assembled Labour activists and media were presented with … a diced tomato.

It’s actually not bad for what it is. No doubt whatever agency charged them an arm and a leg and more had all sorts of reasoning about the meaning of it all. The shard-like pieces, each pristine in its own difference, and yet which somehow cohere in the whole, contained – embraced, even – by the robust, protective red, etc. etc.

Actually reminds me a bit of stained glass window art, like you get in churches. Pretty sure that wasn’t intention (although TBH I quite like that aesthetic…remnants of my RC upbringing I guess….)!

I’d say replacing the leader should have been a higher priority than replacing the logo

Just had a quick look and I don’t think Labour have changed their logo that much since the late 90’s.

Perhaps they want to distance themselves from my old protesting Comrade Joan Burton in the YS dring the sixties. She turned out to be “some tulip”
When we sat down around Charlie Haughey’s car, he didn’t even call the guards!

Actually, Paddy, I don’t remember Joan in those protests. If you do, are you offering your services to the Jobstown defence ?

the rose feels a little squashed in that O of Labour

On Paddy Healy’s point, I’m surprised there isn’t more discussion on this site about Joan Burton’s persecution of the Jobstown people. It’s a particularly egregious effort to restrict the right to protest.

I was tempted to post something but given it’s in court at the moment I erred on the side of caution.

From the same PR gurus who brought us the Solidarity logo? LOL! The emblem above is used by several companies and charities.

Thick isn’t it and again I’m sure there are plenty of creative people in Labour that could have done an original logo.

It looks like an GAA ball to me.

Funny. I was gonna say it looks like a soccer ball. The ball maybe for the next World Cup in Russia? It’s too fancy for a GAA ball – true Gaels wouldn’t approve.

A rose without a thorn, that comes with variants of pink. How appropriate for the Labour Party.

Yes are such clean living boys and gals.

I won’t say what it reminds me of. Suffice it to say that it matches the crap that comes out of the ILP these days.

If it rotated and you watched long enough, you’d be hypnotised. Here’s a Crazy Circle Illusion, in case Labour has second thoughts about its logo design.
