UNH continues to consider logo design possibilities
This summer, the panel representing alumni, students, faculty and staff, met to review about 75 alternate logo submissions and three professional designs submitted previously by a New York firm hired by the university.
UNH President Mark Huddleston did just that, extending the feedback deadline through July 1.
"You can get yourself into sticky legal situations, copyright issues, even delivery issues," Catherine Blake said.
Jude Blake, a member of the University System of New Hampshire Board of Trustees, a retired marketing professional and a UNH alumnus said she does not feel the full re-branding project has ever been properly communicated. The two Blakes are not related.
The logo is just a piece in the overall brand strategy, she said, and the work that has gone into that has probably gone on for more than a year. UNH paid Chermayeff & Geismar & Haviv about $65,000 for the work they have done so far.
The panel evaluated each one of the 75 or so alternate logo submissions carefully and whittled them down to some top candidates.
"A decision has not been made at this point. We are still working on this," Jude Blake said.
Catherine Blake agrees.
"My recommendation is to go with a professional," Catherine Blake said. "I happen to feel the agency UNH chose is highly qualified to deliver what we need because they are experts in education and know how to scale to everything an institution needs."
The advisory panel is expected to make a recommendation to university administration sometime this fall.
