Last winter break, I was reading an article about the UC logo redesign (left-old, right-new). There's some controversy as to the necessity of a new design and its intended purpose. The new logo was designed by UCs graphic design team and was to show up on their website and other documents but the original seal would be used on legal certificates. This didn't sit to well with UC students and alumni apparently as they were concerned it didn't accurately represent their school.
Not going to the school I couldn't really say how effective it is in such things but as a designer my only problem with it is that its just not very well designed. I can see potential with it in interactive media like a website though if it just used the golden "c" with some calligraphic logotype. As it stands, it is pretty ugly in my opinion. What do you think?
