App. State WTF

Throwback logo to before computers existed?

Looks like it was drawn with Magic Markers.

R.I.P. To probably the best head logo in the state. It'd be okay if they didn't just abandon the now old branding and kinda used this as a secondary, but this may be the worst college branding decision this year.

For those that don't know, the logo first debuted in 1971 and lasted to about 1981. The original version from the 1970's in my opinion looks better than this newer redrawn version the came out last year for the throwback deal. Also the original logo was just one color (black) and the skin was empty negative space.

But guys, it's simpler, and you know the CCSLC motto is Simpler=Better

You're mad at an argument nobody made.

I'm in the minority, but I love it! I'm imagining it on a hat or t shirt. I'm a sucker for 2d cartoon logos though

I have a hat, polo, t-shirt, and 1/4-zip pull over of this old logo. It looks much better than Gordon's Fisherman on clothes.

However, I prefer to wear the Block-A, and wished they would clean Vintage Yosef up and maybe a slight cleanup of the Block-A.

Sometimes I look at the Youth Marks and wonder if they're actually better:

This looks like a logo that would be in the first post of a concept. Would look much better with some tweaks (in this case, modernization).

These logos would work perfectly as cereal box mascots, for some reason. I wonder what type of cereal does this smiling guy endorse.

I'm surprised ASU didn't go for an update of the throwback logo, honestly.

The block A works well as a logo though if you ask me.

It's a very pleasing upgrade (throwback) for the folks in Boone. Looks great on t shirts and hats. Much cleaner to embroider than the fisherman yosef on things. The primary A is still a great logo. Simple yet powerful. However I do prefer the softer edges on the original Block A. appalachian-state-A-mountaineers-31000.g
