That’s awesome Albany let a 7yr old design its new logo; is that part of a program with local elementary schools or was it part of a contest?

I liked the old one better. This one, with the flat spot on the top of the head and the un-natural ears, kind of makes me cringe. I really like dogs and I hate it when they look like they are in pain.

I like the Albany/New York State logo. The dog almost looks like a vampire bat. It’s slightly better against the yellow background but the Dane design just doesn’t do it for me.

I immediately saw football goal posts...maybe that is what they were going for? I guess they had a lot of free time on their hands lately. I don't know, not really a fan.

Agreed. Love any logo using a state outline; the dog and the rest are no better than what they had.

I guess you could also say the wordmark is an improvement, only because it is slightly unique.

Can't unsee the goalposts now. Thanks guys.
LOL, same here. Brutal.

And by brutal, I am referring to not being able to unsee the goal posts, not the logos themselves. Just to be clear.

I kinda like it? At least it isn't cookie cutter like all the schools that hired the same design firm as Providence and UMass.

The workmark is good, while not new (it's been on the football helmet and the front of the hoops jerseys for a couple of years). I just don't like the "branding technique" of adding a U in front of something and pretending it's a word.

I don't think it's that bad. Did UA fans have a chance to give feedback on the new design?
Not that I know of. The crazy part is some fans created a change.org petition about the new logo because of the cropped ears on the Great Dane in the logo. I hate this world and cancel culture now.

Man, petitions against cropped ears really get my blood boiling. The nerve of some people to have opinions!

People opposed to "cancel culture" are whining that other people think they are assholes. "I should be allowed to do or say whatever I want, and no one has the right to tell me I am wrong!"

Is everything not getting a little ridiculous now? I mean, there is a group of professors that want to change the name of Rupp Arena.
