Premier League reveals bold new branding

Premier League branding

The new look will be used from season 2016/17 onwards

The lion has been an iconic part of the Premier League identity for decades, but from season 2016/17 onwards the world's biggest soccer league will be sporting this vibrant new branding created by DesignStudio and Robin Brand Consultants.

"Our aim was to create an identity that acknowledges everyone who plays a part in one of the most exciting leagues in the world," says DesignStudio Founder and CEO Paul Stafford.

"And with a fresh, new take on the iconic Lion, we've created an identity that’s purpose-built for the demands of the modern world. While staying true to the Premier League’s history and heritage," he adds.

The redesign has already gone done well, with top sports stars showering the branding with praise.
