More importantly, at least in my mind, the T-Hall logo does not render/resize well in some applications.

    I'll miss the T-Hall logo as the image most associated with UNH. It will still be available for selective use. Perhaps it can be used for special accomplishments and announcements?
    I don't think the lines and squiggles crests that they came out with shows all that the university has to offer either.

    As a student I can tell you that I haven’t talked to one person that has liked any of the logos.

    So this can’t be a good marketing campaign that will get more revenue for the university. The students don’t like the logo it could turn them off from the school and that lead to less revenue. I don’t understand how this marketing campaign will help the university make money. None of the logos seem to bring anything to the table. I hope that they decide against changing the logo because I like the Thompson hall logo.

    Here are my problems with the logos:
    1) Looks too cartoonish and I don’t like the U in the background
    2) I don’t like any of it. I think that the logo should not connect to the sidewalls
    3) I think that the shield is okay but I don’t like how they are in quarters and I think we could find a better way to fill it.

    I also want to know why we can’t use the university crest. The one with the hammer and shield.

    I hope a lot of people took the time to express their opinions, more tactfully than saying 'these all suck'.... (which they do)

    Did all you guys write and tell them they all suck! I asked them why we can't use our athletic image, the Cats Face, in their same progressions. Look at Wisconsin, Michigan, North Dakota...all use their athletic image for all their signage!! I agree guys but how does it come down to us having to accept their 3 offerings?
    On another front, given the D-1 Softball playoff layout, how is it we always talk about the hockey seedlings for the NCAAs and how money decides who plays whom, when they have some 32 teams playing all over the place! Seems a bit lopsided no?

    I think the first one is the best of the awful designs, the third one looks like something done in arts and crafts. The second one is just....embarrassing.

    Absolutely brutal. They probably spent tens of thousands of dollars on this design firm who handed it off to their kids' kindergarten class. Leave the t-hall logo alone and be done with it.

    Is anyone else appalled by the amateurish new logos being considered by UNH? [apparently it is given that there needs to be a new logo]

    Friends,

    UNH campusUniversity Communications and Marketing has been working on a new visual identity for the University to replace the rendering of the Thompson Hall tower that has been in use as a logo for more than a decade. The new design will support a larger effort to create a stronger brand identity for UNH in New Hampshire, the New England states, and nationwide. It will more aptly represent an institution with three campuses and many online offerings, and it will eventually be incorporated into the University’s comprehensive campaign. UCM is working with the renowned design firm Chermayeff & Geismar & Haviv of New York on this effort.

    Based on feedback from UNH students, alumni volunteer leaders, faculty and staff, we have narrowed the field to three options. The purpose of this email is to enlist your thoughts on their relative strengths. Below you will find a link to a video presentation that the design firm created. Please watch the presentation here:

    vimeo.com/65761467
    Password: unhlogo

    The presentation will only be available until noon on May 17.

    After watching, please share your thoughts with me at nh.logos@unh.edu.

    Thank you for your help. This is an exciting time at UNH and I look forward to hearing from you.

    Mark W. Huddleston
    President

    For the rest of us, the bad news arrived when turning on the Channel 9 news later that morning ...
    Chuck, funny that you mention that, as I was picking up some stuff at UNH that morning and then drove north on Rt. 16 to teach a weekend geology course for the Mount Washington Observatory in North Conway, instead driving Rt. 93 and the parkway through Franconia Notch as usual from Thornton. If I had been driving to North Conway from Thornton, I may have been the first person instead of a state park employee to see the Old Man missing around 8 am. Instead, I thought that a couple of the students in the course were pulling my leg on Saturday afternoon when they asked what my alternative plan was for our Old Man geology stop on Sunday. I played along with what they supposedly heard on the radio until I saw all of the commotion at Profile Lake on way back to Thornton on Saturday evening. On Sunday afternoon, WMUR was still at Profile Lake, so I found myself being interviewed, leading to some friends in Seattle calling me later that night about picking up my words on their ABC affiliate out there. But, having watched Thomas Vanek ruin my trip to Buffalo almost exactly four weeks earlier, you make a good point about a probable explanation for the long dry spell without a return visit to the FF for the Wildcats.

    Considering that there are more than likely going to be 3 or 4 other people that will interview for the job, it seems like a bit of a stretch to say that one of those two guys WILL get the job which is what you said the first time. Now you're saying "good chance" which is still a stretch when you dont even know who the other candidates are. Possibly might be the best word to use.

    Ask Maine fans what their thoughts are on the thoroughness of Larry Mahoney's reporting and it should go a long way towards telling you what you should do with this article...
