    Furious Omanis? I wouldn't blame them... infact I'll join the club!

    I was trying to think of what this logo lacks, but I guess it would be easier to think of what it doesn't lack! It's a disgrace to be honest for this logo to be chosen out of all the submissions, bear in mind that I've heard that there were even submissions from people outside the Sultanate.

    There's barely anything at all that represents Oman/Muscat graphically, and we're lucky to atleast have that measly ball in there!

    It's incomparable to last years logo, despite allegations that the logo has been ripped off a company's logo. Anyway, I guess there's very little anyone can do here now that they've chosen the logo and awarded the winner the amount of R.O. 5000. I say congratulations to the winner for being able to get away with such a logo, and the mistake is the Ministry's mistake and the officials in it, or the judging panel (if there even was one!).

    I'm sorry, but that's ugly!
    A beginner could have easily designed that! There's nothing about Oman in that logo.
    When does the Gulf Cup start?

    This is not the first time the 'officials' chose a rather weak logo for an official event in oman. It is the lack of education in logo design, and the fact that they don't even know what is out there, and how creative logo design can be that results in them choosing something very weak and trivial.

    Did they really award that logo 5000 rials?

    -----

    Also none of the logos toomuchat posted are decent, actually they're even worse than the one chosen. Oh well, I wouldn't be surprised if wasta was involved in selecting the winner.
    Follow my thoughts and work:

    Was6a should've be involved in such situation, for God's sake it's an official event and it's taking place here, which doesn't happen quite ofter, silly people!

    This shows that Omanis do not do their all when they are asked to do something.

    This is an embarrasment, specially having the gulf cup here after UAE, they had excellent media coverage, created new songs for the event, I wonder what Oman will do after this cheap and ugly logo. Fathee7a.

    Rossonero, the media coverage was great no one complained about that, they complained about the referees if that's what u meant

    The Omani logo is just a start, who knows what over crappy stuff will come up.

    Let's just hope the logo's effort does not reflect on the whole competition.

    This was the 17th Gulf Cup logo... Qatar



    This was the 18th Gulf Cup logo... UAE



    The one on the left is from a free logo site...



    Any difference?

    as for the 19th Gulf Cup logo, the ones from kooora are not nice as all... plus, its a copy off Nawras logo... if i had to choose among these i would have chosen the one that was picked...

    yeah, it may lack creativity... but why is the '9' bigger than the '1'? and why are they using the old football print?
    Holy Quran 49:13.
    "O Men! Behold, We have created you all out of a male and a female, and have made you into nations and tribes, so that you might come to know one another. Verily, the noblest of you in the sight of God is the one who is most deeply conscious of Him. Behold, God is all-knowing, all-aware".

    This logo is official, it's even in the 19th Gulf Cup official website: www.gulfcup19.com ...
    It's too creative the number "19" next to the word "Muscat" and a ball inside the 19 lol.
    Well if you are talking about media coverage ... We have 2 Omani Channels "Oman TV" and "Oman TV: The Second Program" but I wonder what are they going to do. I'm not expecting much.
    There is also a lack of decent stadiums in Oman for the matches.

    Nabhan can you design a logo for the 19th Gulf Club and show us please?
    You don't have to work hard on it and it doesn't have to be something professional. Let us all just watch the differences and ... laugh.
