I hope the color scheme is not messed up.....

ICYMI: The fifth piece of the new athletics logo was unveiled during Saturday's big win over East Carolina.

It looks like they'll keep a similar color scheme.

I hope there is cream as well, it balanced the 2 dark shades quite nicely

So far I really like what I see. Love that 'W Bird' logo.

My bets are no cream. Regardless, this is going to look good in color.

I wouldn't mind if the cream colour is omitted from the new logo package. This will certainly be a massive upgrade regardless.

I'm seeing a W in the forehead as well. The nose-diving W bird is my favorite so far.

Looks like the new wordmarks are already in place on the basketball jerseys. If you compare to the "leaked" logos from above it seems as though they match.

Ya know I saw the home white and I thought it was the new wordmark, glad I was not seeing things. Hope this means cream will stay!!

Just a reminder, UNC will be unveiling their new Joe Bosack designed logos tomorrow.

According to the UNCW website (specifically http://www.uncwsports.com/sports/2014/12/22/athleticslogohistory_1222143855.aspx), the launch party for the new identity will be from 4-9 EDT today, and looking at their schedule for the event I'd guess that they'd release it as close to 4 as they can.

It's now 4:45pm EDT, and still nothing. I now believe it'll be made public closer to 9pm EDT, or possibly shortly afterward.

You'd think they would've had something at least. Ah well, it's only a couple more hours in the end.

This is UNCW not UNC. Huge difference.

Our athletics go by Charlotte instead of UNC Charlotte to avoid confusion like this.

Back on topic, I like the rebrand for UNCW. It was long past due.

If you go to that link, the new logo is actually at the top in the banner. It matches what's in the puzzle pieces on that page, and you can obviously tell what the UNCW will look like in it.

Huh, I don't see it. Must've accidentally posted it and then removed it quickly. EDIT: I just refreshed the page just now at 3 PDT and they had the new logo. Guess I spoke just seconds too soon.

What I did find by pure coincidence was that the website for the Colonial Athletic Association (UNCW's conference) accidentally posted the revision too early, and I managed to get a couple of screenshots taken. As of writing it's still live on their site: http://www.caasports.com/

I'll leave my comments for the official reveal when we can see all of the designs and wordmarks.

I was thinking that too, it would've made sense. And that's a correct assumption.

Official press release from the school's website: http://www.uncwsports.com/news/2015/1/28/administration_0128152559.aspx?path=administration

Interesting thing I noticed in the article:

The previous logo, designed by local artist Gary Longordo, was introduced in 1992 and remains in place as a secondary mark.

Interesting that they decided to keep the old mark around for a little while longer.
