D.C. United have unveiled a new logo for the second time in club history, replacing the redesigned crest that was unveiled after the 1997 season.  

United conducted thorough market research two years ago on the current state of the brand. The research pointed to the need for modernization to reflect the growth of the sport and the league in the United States.

QPR supporters can now have their say on the club's next club crest.

Following feedback from an initial survey and various meetings with the Supporters Consultation Committee, they've narrowed down the vote to four options based on these findings.

A little later than first advertised - you may have noticed we've been having a few technical issues on the site - we bring you the second of our Christmas "wise men". This one's Martin Le Roy. Or "frankincense" (we checked with Mary Hatch-Bailey for the spelling).

A DF member (MartinLeRoy), Martin has experienced that transition from amateur (fantasy) to part-time IRL kit designer. The podcast will elaborate, but suffice to say He Got His Kits Made.

This Christmas, the three wise men are coming early.

For quite a while, the idea of having a DesignFootball.com podcast has been thrown around, with other commitments stopping the project getting underway, and with the fantastic, and now sadly discontinued, Football Attic picking up the slack with some wonderful kit-centric offerings of their own. Finally, with TFA returning to us that void, we're making it happen.

And by that we mean, very last minute gift guide. Yeah, you're gonna need to go out to the shops yourself - urgh! How uncouth! - or pay top dollar for the superfast delivery service (they charge a lot, right?), and in some cases this'll be entirely impossible, unless you do presents at New Year or Epiphany or some such.

Anyway, here are some ideas of what you can get your loved ones, or maybe still instruct your loved ones to buy you - don't delay!

Over the past few weeks, Manchester City has been conducting a consultation with all of its Cityzens members to establish whether the Club badge should evolve, and if so, how.

The consultation period has closed with thousands of Cityzens members having given their views via the online Cityzens’ questionnaire and the dedicated consultation space at the Etihad Stadium.  Hundreds of fans also attended a series of free lectures on the history of the badge, provided by Football Historian Gary James with many others giving their opinions via City voice.

We sincerely, genuinely, hope you're enjoying the Rugby World Cup. Now at the semi-final stage, the 2015 version gives off the impression, perversely, that it's been going on since time began, when, in fact, it's only been a few decades years months weeks.

Regardless of our sport watching preferences, we should appreciate rugby while it's still around, as, if medical science has any grounding of integrity, it won't be legal for much longer. Why should we appreciate it? The kits of course!

If you have no idea what I'm talking about, seriously, where have you been? The 50 Greatest Football Shirts Ever countdown over at our good friends The Football Attic was a project which covered most of the European off-season and instigated a whole load of debate, and I was honoured to be involved with it.

Now it's over, with the adidas West Germany 1988-91 Home shirt coming out on top, all that's left for us to do is absolutely implore you to check out the entire countdown and have a read of each entry's article - certainly prior to condemning each respective shirt's inclusion - and also pay tribute to our partners in, if you believe the haterz, fashion crime.

In terms of social media presence if nothing else, DF has been away for quite a while. After technical issues several months ago, we halted the sharing of members' fantastic designs and have given the site time to find its feet again - post repairs - before publicising content. That convalescence period is now over.

I, personally, have been busy working on The 50 Greatest Football Shirts Ever with True Colours author John Devlin and Chris Oakley and Rich Johnson over at The Football Attic. You may have seen that countdown being shared if you follow us on Facebook and Twitter, but now it's time to get back to the proper business of focussing on the goings on at HQ.

Cardiff City Football Club unveiled their new Club crest, which will be used in full from the start of the 2015/16 season. The new crest will be displayed on the 2015/16 kits and across all Club communications and a number of new product ranges.

Outlined below are the reasons behind the planning and design process, with all decisions made with a view to producing a crest that all associated with the Cardiff City could identify with and embrace.
