Advocate Logos 1967-2012

It’s no surprise The Advocate has had it’s share of Art Directors all wanting to redesign the brand to match “their vision.” But to the public eye, this seems more like a bad case of identity crisis. In the last 45 years, The Advocate has had roughly 15 different logos. The above animation features ten of the most familiar, not one of which is like the other.

My person favorite? The classic, 1967. Which you can catch as our replacement logo on the homepage this entire week as we celebrate the 45th Anniversary issue of The Advocate! You can also see it, after the jump.Scott McPherson
