I've heard Invent the Future is out... we're coming up with something new, that better meshes with the athletic look

In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.

Damn, Invent the Future was an awesome slogan.

The gobbler is the best. I would love for us to rock that on a week to week basis.


Oh please for goodness sake bring the gobbler back

I'm wondering will this be just the university logo or include athletics?

For a moment I read your response as "we are now going to be called Virginia Tech University" and was like DA HELL WE ARE!

Now, I'm cool, I'm cool.

Invente el Fuente

I hope it's as good as the recent NBA Finals rebrand.

Edit: Sarcastic or not, wishes do come true, kids

Isn't this what was talked about a while back with the rounded VT and softer edges?

dammit beat me by seconds...

I truly do not like it.

It might as well be written in comic sans.

EDIT: It is growing on me.

This and the edit is exactly how I felt.

I finally remembered what this reminds me of:

Warning: this post occasionally contains strong language (which may be unsuitable for children), unusual humor (which may be unsuitable for adults), and advanced mathematics (which may be unsuitable for liberal-arts majors)..

I'm rather upset that they dropped "Invent the Future". Why try to fix something if it wasn't broken?

From https://vtnews.vt.edu/articles/2017/09/unirel-mark.html

The lettering reflects the VT-shaped educational experience. The vertical bar of the T represents disciplinary depth, while the horizontal bar reflects the ability to work across disciplines. The arms of the V represent applying knowledge in real-world settings and the spirit of Ut Prosim. The logo's openness and shape highlight Virginia Tech's identity as an inclusive community that thrives at the intersection of academic disciplines.

I get that graphic design is difficult, but this is too much. It's a logo not an ethos.

Taking out the Pylons was the biggest mistake in my opinions. Our military history is something I'm very proud of, and while non-VT people don't get what the Pylons represent, we all do.

Rip his freaking head off!

How exactly does a rounded edge that divides the V and the T equate to inclusiveness. The V and T were already joined together as one.

Not to mention that the round edge completely clashes with the straight lines and sharp angles. The traditional square root of T logo looks cutting edge because it looks like it has sharp edges. This looks like a thin plastic decal that is peeling off and folding over on itself.

Not. Good.

Not impressed. If I didn't have an idea of how much money this thing cost, I probably wouldn't care. But since I do, someone please explain to me what benefit the change is supposed to return for the investment?
