Orlando Magic Polling Your Thoughts On Logo 

Post#1 » by Def Swami » Tue Nov 23, 2021 8:14 pm

There appears to be a Qualtrics survey circulating the internet from the Orlando Magic asking fans to rank their favorite logo. If you're like me and have wanted the Magic to just go back to the original logo and jerseys, take a minute and fill out this quick survey.

Their original was always my favorite, and it seems to just keep getting worse
1,2.............3 in that order

For me it's 2, 1, 3. I first became a fan when they were using the second logo. It's the one I think about the most when I think of the Magic.

I don't hate any one of our logo's, but I do think the current one we have is the worst one. Also did the survey.

Thanks for sharing! Filled it in, I went 1, 2 (close second) and 3 way at the bottom.

Hopefully this signals a slight rebrand on the horizon, as I put in my comments I absolutely associate 1 and 2 with great times for the Magic and associate 3 with the most soul destroying period as a Magic fan
I still believe in Magic!

Just filled out the survey. That original logo just hits me in the feels every time I see it. Would be a dope move by the Magic if they went back to it. Might break the curse that is currently on our beloved franchise.

Screw a poll; why don't they start competing again.

We need a logo. All our logos rely too much on the words Orlando Magic. We need a better picture representation of Orlando Magic besides the streaking small blue/silver ball. If you made the Celtics logo, the Bulls logo or the Heat logo a black and white silhouette you’d know what team it was.

I love the ball they have now... Just the current font is an eyesore. I'm totally okay with going back to the first or second one. If they decide to go another route, keep the ball and change the font. Filled out the survey, good they are getting feedback from the fans.

I'm not too sure how these two things are related.

I hate that original font and logo design. Tacky AF to me. The font feels like a bad 90’s ‘graffiti’ font or something.

I’ve always wanted to see a lot more out of the design of the Magic logo but I’m also aware I’m in the minority on that front a lot love the nostalgia of the old logo and pinstripe uniforms.

The earliest logo is my favorite and what I sport as a sticker on my car. Nostalgia is everything to me so that one hits me just right.

While I see where you are going here, consider that the most recognizable brand logo on the entire planet is not a picture but a name. Not to say our font or name is memorable either though - we definitely need something better than what we’ve got - either picture or font.

Of course the original is the the best one but it's good where it is. In our past. It's classic but a little bit vintage.
The second one was great, still don't understand why the hell they've decided to change it

Finally! I did the survey. I was brutal on the current logo, lukewarm on the 2nd logo and glowing of the OG logo. Hopefully the majority feel the same way (I have a feeling they do).

The last 2 logos look horrible on merch. The OG looks amazing on merch.

original is best but the font is not at all great in the modern era; but that ball moving with the stars in tow is *chefs kiss*

edit; the question where i had to list 3 words that reminded me of the Magic, it was difficult to not put "pinstripes" 3 times.

Responded with a heartfelt request to go back to the pinstripe jerseys along with the old logo - I will take any opportunity to let them know my feelings on that :lol:

None of the logos really do anything for me. I do prefer the original shade of blue though. Our current logo looks like a generic logo generated for a game that couldn't afford NBA licensing fees.

Screw logo, here's more interesting question in the survey:
List three words/short phrases or images that come to mind when you think about the Orlando Magic.


I've typed "Tank" "Losing superstars" and "Fire Alex Martins"...

I voted for the original since that's my personal favorite. There's definitely a bit of nostalgia influencing that choice since I've been watching since a kid in '89. I appreciate them polling fans for input. It's nice to feel like the fanbase has some sort of influence. It's also a nice distraction in a season where there isn't much to be excited about.

When I read the topic, I looked up at the sky and exclaimed, "Thank goodness!" I chuckled at myself.

I participated in the survey and really opened up. I'm so excited they're considering a logo change.

Thank you so much, Def Swami, for letting us know.
