They’re apparently investing 17 million toward a better future……hmmm….too little too late?

What a horrible design. I wish I could like it, but it seems a massive step down from the aged (yet still adequate) design we did have in place.
A fair few of my friends have just graduated from University doing one art/design or another (not my cup of tea) but in their final year they had to design new advertising campaigns/logos for well known companies around Scotland.
Why didn’t the airport get in on this, as i’m sure my friends could have designed something half as good in their sleep.
Also, the logo look exactly like “Clyde The Thistle”, that strange mascot for the Commonwealth Games, and that was designed by a school child.10 Jul 2013
“To mark the launch, a mascot version of the logo will be walking around the airport and meeting travellers today.”
So, basically Clyde The Thistle without all the colour?10 Jul 2013
Interesting times ahead as EDI and GLA shape up to each other…..
Remember the days that GLA was the only airport inScotland that allowed you to fly to Europe and PIK was designated the trans atlantic airport…
Oddly, it’s the LCC’s presence at EDI that has mushroomed the vailability of destinations.
Does GLA suffer from the closish proximity of PIK I wonder ?10 Jul 2013

Without knowing how much the branding exercise cost, I dare say that it will either grow on the locals or merely pass them by. In much the same way that the London 2012 logo was greeted with incredulity and bemusement to start with but comprehensively grew on at least some of us by September last year.10 Jul 2013
About the best use for PIK;
It is still 1-0 to the Prestwick though when it comes to having a rail link, to access GLA, EDI, DND or INV by train you always have to pull the communication cord. And as for ABZ, I just can’t find the entrance to the underground walkway from the other side of the runway.10 Jul 2013
