College athletics identity changes

Recommended Posts

It's well designed and I want to like it but there's something real weird going on with the dragon's mouth. Also would like the wordmark better without the horn on the D.

If they have no teams, why bother with a logo?

Future plans

School Pride

And most importantly, merchandise brings in revenue.

Why they don't just go back to this full time is beyond me

They keep putting the date off but I believe next year is supposed to be the transition.

Cal U (California University of Pennsylvania, Division II) Vulcans revealed their new athletics logos yesterday.  Source

While they're not the only Vulcans in the NCAA, I think it's safe for them to brand under the name instead of Cal U which I'm sure many have confused with the state of California.

I brought this up in General Design but since the change is being slowly implemented on social media it probably belongs in here. Loyola Marymount’s getting a full rebrand for 19/20 as part of a university wide branding system.

Having went to high school in PA, the fun fact here is that PA has a "Cal U" and an "Indiana (Pa) U". If you say that you went to "Cal" or "Indiana"...most natives immediately think you went to the Pa State school rather than thinking you're a Golden Bear or Hoosier.

Just saw that LMU change. That's a bit disappointing. Their old LMU had character and I liked it. Wish they would have kept it. I don't love the new lion head, but I do like it better than the old one.

Let's give Carnegie Dartlet the credit for this

1) That's a gorgeous Vulcan logo

2) I love the hammer hidden in the "C". That can work on its own.

I get the new UNLV logo was controversial, but I actually liked it. Fairly certain it was SDS, right? I feel bad they scrapped it so early, can't imagine how much time and money both sides put into that. 

 

Why was it so controversial?

I disagree with that completely.  Maybe in western PA that's true, but even if I say "IUP", most people in Phila area have no idea what you're talking about.  Saying "Indiana" is even worse.  I'm fairly certain even fewer people (again, in east PA) have ever heard of Cal U of PA, especially since it doesn't have a any kind of common initialization.

Hopefully this turns out well because looking at their prior logo history, their track record isn't good. Who was their prior graphic design firm? A kindergarten class?
