North Florida new logos

Recommended Posts

I'm not familiar with the current logo. What'd they change? I'd like to see a side-by-side comparison of old and new.

Fitting for a school on par with most community colleges. Unfortunate that a unique name like Osprey has to be fit with this sorry excuse for a "university".

New wordmark is great, and the update to the Osprey head is a huge upgrade.

It's a modernization of apparently a logo they hold in high regard. If the University is happy, then the update is a success.

The new osprey head is a definite upgrade over the original, but I still don't like it. With a unique name like Ospreys, I think they deserve something a little less generic. Seeing that logo out of context just makes me think Eagles or Hawks or any other run-of the-mill bird logo.

Does anybody know what this logo looks like on a dark background? They'd have to add a more complete white outline around it.

I'm not a fan of that font. The serifs seem like they're pointing backwards, fighting me as I'm reading forwards. The osprey is a big upgrade, though. The tweaks to the lines around the eyes make it look much more fierce and determined. They missed a big opportunity by not having the osprey coming out from behind the UNF as a logo, in my opinion.

I'm glad they cleaned up the Osprey, doesn't look like a bad cartoon anymore....buttttttt they really should of already gone with a different style wordmark. I mean, West Florida uses the same damn style.

Somebody vectorize this:

Osprey are pretty unique birds and visually they kind of look like Owl-Eagles. Side note - I wish that some team would adopt a distant Osprey cousin - the Secretary Bird - as a mascot. They're impressive creatures.

That would require hiring a different design firm.

I like the Bird and UNF logo. Not a huge fan of the word mark.

Is the Osprey wearing a winged helmet?

It probably just reflects the feather pattern, rather than a helmet:

Isn't the seatle Seahawks suppose to be an osprey?

A Seahawk (or sea hawk) and an osprey are the same bird.

Anybody know if they're still using this logo?

Not nearly as many as there are in Missouri.
