    I think giving it a 'meh' might be a bit generous.

    It gets decent marks for being safe and uncontroversial, not much in the way of bold and cutting edge.

    To me, the color scheme and overall design is a bit early 2000s and sleepy.

    And the mome raths outgrabe.

    Does he do those, or is Francis the genius behind them?

    I hope it has more staying power than those barbed wire ones in the late 90’s/early 2000’s

    I'm not getting mine until the Zags win the title!!!

    Better hurry, too, because I've been seen shaking hands with Thomas Jefferson, and he looks younger than me!

    I am with this, first thing I noticed was the absence of BYU in provo, UT.
    but from the point of view of the WCC, its basketball only, BYU does not other competing with WCC teams other than basketball teams, is that right?

    That’s the first thing I thought, who picked that color? The one thing they got right was the decision to actually change the logo. Because the last one, in my best Bill Walton, was just awful.

    The design is better than the old. It's the color that I dont like. Many other color options better than what was chosen.

    "WCC" from Raise's post is easily the cleanest and identifiable. Elegant and non pretentious. Sometimes flashy and "artistic" are to be avoidedSimple is better.

    No idea you went to Art Center College of Design in Pasadena?

    I used to work at the Jet Propulsion Lab in Pasadena looking at blood flow mathematics. But I did drive by the Art Institute there once. ….once. Just not my thing.…..back then

    Call it osmosis, then. Marvelous place, Art Center. Knew the longtime prexy there, David Brown, very well.

    I believe they compete in the WCC in all sports with the exception of football of course. I know for certain they compete in women's volleyball and are a powerhouse. The WCC was already strong in that sport and BYU has added to that. Generally considered the best non P5 conference.

    Nice!

    Huge Glaser fan right here. I always like those crabby old legends of design. Saul Bass is right there, too. 'Course he's pining for the fjords...

    So you must be familiar with U&LC, the bible of mid-century font design that involved so many power designers such as Herb Lubalin, Bass, Glaser, George Lois, et al. I knew most of them. Glaser was/is a pizzer as is George.

    Yep! Oh man, that is so cool! I am a pro letterer these days (a term that would be utterly unknown to the greats you just listed), and find most of my direction in the work of the past. These days it is Ken Barber carrying the torch of the masters, guiding the kids to do it right with pencils and practice. After attending a workshop of his this past June in SLC, Mrs. Phish and I are working to find a way out to Cooper Union to take another class of his next year. I miss NYC and can't wait to see it with a designer's eye and more time.

    Five stars for the Lubalin reference.

    Cooper was the epicenter for the power designers, but don’t sleep on Parsons, SVA, RISD, Art Center and Pratt. Let’s talk. Who was the great female designer who worked with Herb?

    I don't know! I'm intrigued.

    That guy was cool in 900 different ways. Norman Rockwell painted him redesigning the Saturday Evening Post type!

    It doesn’t look contemporary.

    Done by an intern with no design background? I like the blue-green color range, but that choice is too much in the middle and too saturated. It also doesn’t describe West Coast waters.
