Okay, New Hampshire, what do you think about the UNH logo now?
A few months back, when the University of New Hampshire presented three possible new school logos, officials got nothing but grief for their efforts. Alumni and others groused that the designs were unattractive, that the university had paid big money for them, and that the money had gone to an out-of-state firm.
The griping went on for weeks, and the university regrouped.
Now officials have unveiled the results of their rethinking. It’s simple and to the point: A blue shield with the letters “N” and “H” inside. The “N” is blue, the “H” is white. Gone is Thompson Hall. Gone is the word “University.”
The new design, created by the same firm that came up with the earlier suggestions, was chosen by a panel of students, alumni, faculty and staff.
So, what do you think? Can you live with the logo? Learn to love it? Send your thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll publish a collection of local opinion in an upcoming Forum section.
