Meaning and history

Rebel Logo history

Rebel Sport retail chain was established by Super Retail Group Limited in 1985 when its first shop was opened in Bankstown. This name was probably chosen because it’s distinctive, and it can be easily associated with sports. In 2012, Rebel Sport deleted the word ‘Sport’ from its name and changed the logotype. In 2017, it was merged with Amart Sports – a sports brand which ceased its operations. By the same time, Rebel was the official partner of many cricket organizations of Australia. It had over 4,000 employees and multiple nationwide labels.

When they changed their name, they also changed the logo. Now it showed the name without the ‘Sport’ word and any rectangles.


Rebel Symbol

The font set up changed twice throughout the history of the Rebel brand logo. The original logotype depicted the narrowed and elongated sans-serif characters for the ‘rebel’ word, while showing small yet bold sans-serif letters for the ‘sport’ caption. The symbols also had large gaps in between. In both inscriptions, the letters are all capitals.

The 2012 variation of the logo features lowercase ‘rebel’ word with sans-serif characters. Also, the second ‘e’ symbol is mirrored, which makes the whole logotype look stylish and distinctive.


Rebel Emblem

The official corporate logotype of Rebel is the black image positioned in a white background. There are other versions of this logo, colored white, blue, et cetera, but they’re rather situational.
