While the response to the new UC logo certainly hasn’t been positive, the move did win the support of some folks at the University of Washington.
Taking a few not-so-subtle digs at the UC, a news article on the website of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Washington commended the UC on the redesign.
Here’s the full UW story:
During the previous century, under memorable President Dick McCormick, the University of Washington hired a bunch of consultants who modernized its athletic logo from a husky to a ferret.
The University of California – ever a laggard, but never by too much – is now keeping pace, changing the UC seal to a pull-tab.
We commend UC leadership, and congratulate our colleagues at Berkeley, San Diego, and the other UC campuses, on this important modernization.
