    New color schemes...slight annoyance

    So I was just at Scheels and discovered a slight annoyance with the new logo attire/colors.

    While I love the color scheme, the new "red" doesn't go with the old "red". Also, they have new logo stuff in the "old" red and also some in the maroon red. Doesn't go well together either.

    Found a hat I liked today withe the I-State logo, but it was more of a bright red (red of old with new logo). I wanted to get the new FB jersey replica, but that is the new colors (more maroon). Couldn't wear my new logo hat with the new jersey because the colors would look stupid together.

    We need to design all new logo clothing in the new colors and let the old red/yellow go.

    Ended up buying nothing, because the damn hat didn't match the rest of the stuff I wanted (and yes..need the hat for my bald head).

    End rant.

    I just hate when I can't get colors to match.

    It does appear Nike is consistant with the new colors. Problem is I prefer some of the non-Nike new logo attire and the colors of those are all over the board.

    The problem is not everything is made by Nike, and their stuff get's very expensive.

    Yes, it has been troubling seeing the inconsistency in color. Hopefully, after a year, things will be straightened out.

    By the was, has ISU decided to keep the old logo as University Spirit Marks??? University Spirit Marks : Trademark Licensing Office

    Originally, the old marks weren't supposed to be licensed anymore after a certain date, but I don't see that language on the Trademark website anymore. If the university will still use the old mark for certain things while the athletic department solely uses the new marks, then things have become even more messed up.

    You have to click on the New Athletic Identity page to see that the "old" spirit marks are still valid for another month:

    The Iowa State Univeristy Athletic Department has introduced a new identity beginning fall 2008! Marks are shown below. Athletics will continue to use the current family of marks until then. Marks are available to licensees via Trademarx Online , the artwork and approvals site of the Licensing Resource Group.

    I'm guessing for the next couple seasons at least, until people update their cyclone grear, within the crowd and tailgating area, there will be a mix of twisty birds (on jackets, shirts, flags) and the colors of that era with the new logo and colors... visitors won't know what the heck our logos or colors truly are! of course we can't forget the old folk wearing the cir. 1986 polyester/nylon ISU jackets as well...


    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

    It should be fun this fall looking at the 30 different colors of red. I have nothing in the new traditional cardinal color yet. I guess I have a hat from about 6 years ago that is actually cardinal and gold and not ketchup and mustard.

    That only refers to the athletic department. University departments can obtain a license of the old marks for use on clothing, etc. Is this going to change to the new marks? The term "University Spirit Marks" makes me think differently.

    There was some discussion from the trademark office awhile back that things were going to be put on hold for awhile because the transition was going slower than expected. Who knows..

    Thats the reason you rotate colors. Dont do the red/maroon hat & red/maroon jersey. You go with the yellow or white hat and the red/maroon jersey, switch it up.
