New Purdue logo

Recommended Posts

That loses the whole sense of motion the current (soon to be former?) one has.

As a Purdue fan, I like this. Looks like the Old Gold has been modified, although the athletics teams have been using a version of Beige/Vegas Gold for quite a while now.

That's a poorly angled logo as the new logo implies that it is a smokestack rather than a menacing train.

I posted a few months back that Purdue was another team to have a TBD instead of a logo on the logo t-shirts in the nike catalog. I guess this is it.

I don't like the way the low perspective on this version distorts the train. Also, I'm almost afraid to say it, but the steam cloud looks vaguely phallic.

The new train is real bad, looks amateur.

Really? I don't see that...

I think you're just looking for a penis in everything. It's not there. If it is, the person who drew that and thinks that what a penis looks like should go get some medical attention immediatly...

I'm 44. My days of looking for a penis in everything ended about 25 years ago.

That said, I highly doubt there was any intent to draw something that looked like a penis. However, the end result looks vaguely (and unnecessarily) like one.

The steam looks more like a wig to me. I am surprised this logo is so tall.

As for the old logo, the only thing that really bothered me was the wordmark area where it's black on one side, gold on the other. But, as Ian said, it had a sense of motion, where this has much less.

Meh. Not a bad idea, but as Buc said, a sense of motion like the now-former train had is lacking. It looks as if it's just sitting there. The steam doesn't even really look like steam, either. Certainly a downgrade, which makes the change quite unfortunate because I thought the now-former train was one of the better logos in college. Bummed to see it go in favor of this one.

For comparison, here's the old one:

I like the front-on orientation, but the steam looks very strange in the new one.

I just noticed that the cow catcher on the old logo was so messed up. It is too far to the left. It's not even centered with the smokestack and the shield on the front, and since it would stick out in front of them, it should actually have been slightly to the right of their center line.

As for the new one, I hate the font and the smoke looks weird.

Yeah, the angle on the old train is off. The cowcatcher isn't on a line with the front of the engine.

It is the catalog nike sends to shops that focus on collegiate apparel for specific schools. I no longer have it in my possession.
