    Colorado's $780,000 rebranding effort

    CU gets new logo in $780,000 rebranding effort - Boulder Daily Camera

    Three-quarters of a million dollars and two years of time, and that's what they come up with? Ready for the backlash from Boulder.

    Give me $20 and 15 minutes with Paint and I think I could've pulled it off.

    I'm assuming some of that money went to marijuana, which also explains why it took 2 years to finish...

    why did it cost $780,000 to basically remove the buffalo outline from their football logo?

    They must have hired the same agency that produced "Legends and Leader" as well as the Clevland Browns logo.

    Yes, they bought some marijuana. But they didn't buy deodorant and skipped more than enough showers to cover it.

    it's not as easy to design a logo as you'd think, especially with a hangover from a $780,000 party

    They'd be foolish to change the helmet logo.


    Kansas wears Adidas.

    Um, the logo is only a very small part of this - no doubt. Logo is just one part of branding.

    Regardless, It took me a bit to figure out what had changed with the logo. IMO, the old one was better.

    CU? They spent over 3/4 of a million and can't even get the two letters in the correct order?

    What were you all expecting - something as profound as the block-lettered "I-State?"

    Of course everyone's school has the coolest logo and everyone else's sucks.

    From what I've read, the logo is actually the main part of the rebranding initiative (along with the typeface and institutional naming system).
