Bradford City AFC



An idea for Bradford City's badge. It currently looks a bit like this (minus the watercolour :/), which, no offence, looks kinda dated. So my intention was to update the current badge and drag it into the 21st century, whilst still drawing on BCAFC's history. Their nickname's the Bantams, so the bantam stays at the top of the badge. I changed the colour scheme to better reflect a bantam's plumage, i.e. the reason why BCAFC adopted the animal as its nickname. I also used this shield for much of the inspiration, and attempted to maintain the stripes and black highlights found in the current badge. The stripes, obviously, for the colours they wear, and the black which I think was incorporated in memory of the 56 fans who lost their lives in a fire at the stadium, the club's worst disaster in its history.

I also made it in mind of their ever-changing kit (traditionally claret-and-amber stripes, last season it was all-claret, this season will be predominantly amber) and a requirement for the badge to fit with these variations. I hope it worked, but the proof's in the pudding: I gave it a few different backgrounds here, as well as showing a one-tone version of the badge and the potential that might have on kits etc.

Yeah, not much.
