A New Take on an Old Classic

New York-based designer Matt McInerney is currently publishing his concept to re-design logos for all 32 NFL teams.

Here's his take on our favorite club:

Green Bay Packers

A little explanation:
This interlocking G & B, set in chamfered type, is a nod to one of the early Green Bay Packers logos.
He is of course referring to this logo, the beautiful interlocking "GB" worn on caps from Vince Lombardi through the 1970s.

I rather like it. I can't see the Packers ever ditching Dad Braisher's "G" helmet logo, but but as a "what if?" exercise I like McInerney's design a lot more than I do some of the others which have been proposed.
