The AFL today unveiled its much anticipated ‘W’ brand mark for AFL Women’s, developed by brand consultancy PUSH Collective.

The bold mark represents a new take on the game of AFL and celebrates the extraordinary professional athletes from across Australia who will soon be able to play football in an elite women’s competition. 

AFLW launch

“The launch of AFL Women’s is a milestone in Australia’s sporting history. Our team was determined to create a brand identity that expressed a new perspective on the game and its traditions – an identity that encapsulates both the familiar and the progressive nature of the elite women’s style of play. We are thrilled to be a part of creating new history for the players and fans who are driving AFL Women’s, and helping to inspire future generations who no longer have to wonder whether it’s possible for women to play at the elite level,” said Ken Shadbolt, executive creative director of PUSH Collective. 

While exploring the unique shapes of the AFL goal posts and goal square, the PUSH team found a way to fashion these iconic elements into a deceptively simple ‘W’ mark. The ‘W’ mark will feature prominently in the lead up to next year’s competition, and will be supported by a new visual identity system that has been designed to challenge preconceptions of how football is presented in this country.

The new brand mark was revealed in a short launch video – also created by PUSH – featuring many of the league’s star players.

AFL Marketing Manager – Brand, Jemma Wong said: “This is such a historic moment for the AFL brand. We wanted to create something that was bold, future-forward and modern, but resonated strongly with the players and fans of AFL Women’s. It also needed to be designed for digital environments and small screens as well as carrying weight in traditional media.

“The AFL Women’s brand positioning, ‘See What We Create’, places the athletes at the heart of the brand, empowering them to co-create and build the future of the league with us for future generations. We consulted with the Football Advisory Group, shared this work with clubs and players and worked closely with PUSH Collective to create a contemporary design that was powerful and aspirational. We are delighted with the results delivered by Ken Shadbolt and his team.”
