totally screw things up.

Cal has changed its logo. Clearly designed by a committee, most likely stoned at the time.

Or the committee chair's middle school kid came up with a really neat idea and no one on the committee had the courage to tell the chair it was awful.

Someone commented that it looked like a "webpage loading icon".

This is a terrible change.

Let there be darkness.

because it does not belong to any school I support, graduated from or am associated with in any way.


Note that this is for the whole UC system.

Many people think this is the new UC Berkeley logo; it is not. That doesn't make it any less terrible.


Also note it is not "replacing" the seal

People (including the writer of that petition everyone signed) seem to be under the impression that we're tossing out the seal. This is not the case. Institutions can have a seal and a logo


It's very...80s.

Did you watch the video and see the new "Let There Be Light" text treatment? Eek. If I didn't know any better, based on that logo, I would guess that they were a bottom-tier art/design school, not a major university.


There should be the same outcry...

Interesting, the poll at the bottom says 95% prefer old logo *

and saved themselves a lot of money and bellyaching! Regardless of what you change FROM; students, alums, fans, etc. will ALWAYS like the "old" better!

I, personally, voted for the Jumpin' Jesuits in 1993 which would have avoided the whole "Warriors"/"Eagles"/"Gold" fiasco in the first place.

I am still convinced that Jumpin' Jesuits won (I don't know a single MU student from back then who did not vote for it).
