      Not Neville Brody’s FF Blur – it predates it by many years. TBH it badly needs a redraw as it just looks like a bad photocopy a la any flyer from the late 80s early 90s.

      Thanks, Littlepixel! I’ve removed the erroneous FF Blur from the tags. My fault for assuming it was used.

      And I agree: I’m sure there is some legacy brand value in the logo, but it looks so dated now that I can’t see any benefit outweighing a redesign.

      It looks sooo outdated to me! The worse is by far, the logo. It looks narrowed and it’s no need at all. And Franklin Gothic looks old fashioned. My opinion.

      I have a soft spot in my heart for all-caps Franklin, but definitely agree that the Time Out logo is supremely hideous.
