MARLENE STOLLINGS MEDIA MINUTES (MARCH 3)
VIDEO: VCU TOPS RICHMOND IN A-10 FIRST ROUND
March 5, 2014
New VCU logo
More on this later, but I’ll let the video walk you through. A vast improvement, in my opinion.

Overall I like it, but not sure about all the orange tones though. What’s up with that?
Mar 05, 2014 @ 13:26:48
The video is a little deceptive. Still black and gold.

What’s with the orange and black? And where’s the ram?
Mar 05, 2014 @ 13:26:25
Parts of the video make it look darker than it is. Still black and gold, although this gold is now same as the university gold.

I agree that the orange is awful. Does not help a new look that appears very unpopular so far.

Actually, we’ve received a ton of positive feedback. Can’t make everybody happy, but I think it will grow on many folks.

Thanks for the response, @aroundthehorns! I’m liking the logos more every time I see them. Glad CBS and ESPN got them up on their sites so quickly. I hope we get to see them incorporated in the broadcast on CBS Sports in some way tonight!

I have been reading quite a bit about it, have not seen all this “positive feedback” you mention
Mar 07, 2014 @ 03:24:55
It’s out there. Most of the feedback we’ve received has been positive.

Looking at other sites, such as the VCU athletics site, there is no orange at all on these logos – and that was my only issue. I think they look great.

Heard this was outsourced to a company in Ohio. Please say that isn’t so?! How could a school with a nationally known school of design not pull from its own local talent pool?

We are required to bid out a job of this size. In addition, while VCU’s school of design is wonderful, it is a just that, a school. They are not in the business of designing athletics logos and visual identities. The firm we chose, this is what they do.
