As creatives, we constantly strive to reinterpret the world in new and visually exciting ways. Yet we can also be conservative and often have a knee-jerk reaction to something new.
So, on the day a new logo design is launched for a familiar brand, the first reactions are usually negative. Once some time has passed and the new design has been seen in action, though, it can be a different story. Here we take a look back at the month's biggest new designs and redesigns: with a bit of fresh perspective, what do you think of them now?

This new logo design for the Florida State football team (right) has caused quite a stir amongst die-hard fans.
Working closely with Nike designers to develop a look that accurately represents the excitement and tradition of today's Seminole football, the aim was to make the team's uniforms even more symbolic of its relationship with the Seminole Tribe of Florida while maintaining its iconic look.
