      To the pub, my Guinnessy friend, to the pub!

      Sure where would ya want to be on such a poxy day as this?

      Is ‘get the goo’ a dublin thing? I’ve never heard people from other counties say it

    I like it. A move away from flat vector based imagery is a good idea. It’s too easily ripped off and looks generic.

    So all you second rate marketing urgents out there who can’t comprehend why a proper logo isn’t amazeballed in an hour… take a good look at that link.

      All the lads who barely get away with being raphic designers because they can vector trace stuff start shaking in their boots when they see real design that requires actual talent becoming fashionable……..

      1. Termagant

        Nah, I think it’s too fussy and I used Solidworks and 3ds Max in a professional setting for 6 years. You’ve got shading AND depth AND this textural overlay. Any two would have been great, all three is overegging the pudding.

        Congrats on the “you’re just too dumb to understand, you pleb” approach though, you don’t see rhetoric that sophisticated very often.

          Agreed with Termagant and Joe – the harp is definitely over-done. It doesn’t need to be a flat vector, but it’s a bit too much. Having said that, I prefer it to the old one anyway.

          The font is magnificent.

      Think it’s more of a grá than a fetish. You can’t beat a pint of plain be it in Krugers in Dun Chaoin or a fancy night spot in Dublin, Galway or wherever.

        I find the fancier the spot the worse the G, in Dublin anyway. With you on the grá though, such a grá.

          That probably supports the theory that it’s to do with the length the Guinness has to travel from keg to tap:

          Shorter pipes = Better Guinness

      Are they singing “You to me are everything”? *

      * I wouldn’t usually go in for self praise but ask yer Da, this is actually quite a good joke if you grew up in the 70’s

    There is a simpler version of the new one that doesn’t use gradients which I think is better than the shiny looking one pictured. You can see it in black on white by clicking the link. I’d prefer this in solid gold than the shiny version. I think the harp is too big relative to the text too though.
    1968 is my favourite version.
