The Blue Voice committee have remained in close contact during this close season and all agreed it was time for a fresh approach with a new logo.

The new logo will be going on flags and merchandise.

We've whittled it down to 4 options which are below.

We put it to you, the fans to decide our new logo.

The poll will run for 7 days and at the end of that time the logo with the most votes will win.

Logo 1

I'd say logo 3. However one thing that would bug me is the shape of "Southend United FC" at the bottom - I think it would look better if the space between that and the edge of the circle was even. At the moment it's not as rounded as the circle. Also, the waves in the background don't look the same as in the club crest.

Just nit-picking though, that's a top effort. :thumbsup:

I see what you're saying, which is why I prefer option 2 with just 'Southend United', it looks more rounded. As when adding the 'FC' it needed to arc more which then started to distort the text a little and drag it out.

I can't see the images - They all have an x running through them! I am at work - something to do with that perhaps?

Nothing to do with me really as the Blue Voice is not my particular thing, but on all the possible logos the silhouette characters look to me more like a mob than a group of football fans. Maybe intentional.

Interesting view there Mick.

Can I ask how you have come to that conclusion?

All I see is fans celebrating and waving a few flags?

I'd like to see the silhouette be just Trueblue alá his TV debut in January Away vs Northants

First of all AB, fantastic effort on these. Look really professional and stylish. Top work.

I went for number three but I did have the same thought as Jack. On the final logo that will need to be changed otherwise it'll just look odd. I prefer Southend United FC to without the FC (as that just doesn't work for me for some reason), but as I say it would need to be rounded properly to work.

Can I ask what program you've made these on?

Personally, I would say #1. Am I alone in thinking it looks as though Scooby Do's head is being carried aloft?

Guy on the extreme right looks a little as if he's pointing a gun in the air.....of course, it could be a flare.....

Reckon it's the chaps coming out of the Spread with those 2 scum shirts that got the full treatment.

Not sure, that's just how it looks to me . Not a conclusion, just an impression.

But yes, eastblack I see it now. Bet you do well on Rorschach tests !
