Petey is definitely not good at art, but does work with people who are.

But not nearly as good as the guys at SME........just ask jdub.

Correct. 2 different sentences. My opinion happens to agree with the objective opinions of the vast majority regarding our unfortunate logo.

And majority always rules...Fighting Sioux Forever.

Amazing SME has managed to keep the doors open let alone continue to pick up national contracts with some pretty impressive brands. 

I'm thinking they concentrated their efforts on those national contracts and didn't exactly give their all on the flyover country bird.

^^^^^^This^^^^^^

$50k doesnt even get a real logo design/branding company out of bed, instantly delegated to an intern.

Can't remember what we paid, but if it was over 2-3 hours at $40/hour we got taken.

This thread is trash. And most of you should be ashamed of yourselves. I hope your children have someone else to model respectful dialogue with.  Damn millenials, eh....

People (including yourself if I remember correctly) have already complained about funds spent on the new nickname and logo and now your'e saying they didn't spend enough? Though I suppose being fluid in your position makes it easier to criticize.

I recall most of the complaining being, as Petey put it, that UND "got taken" for the quality of product it received in relation to the cost paid out to get it.  Most (on this site) didn't see this logo as a sufficient ROI.

I've read every nickname discussion on here and don't recall anything other than the SME self congratulatory award.  

Maybe Darell can investigate. 

This is the only article I remember seeing regarding the logo in any sort of rankings or awards.  #37 in the best new primary logos of 2016 according to some Chris Creamer guy.  Yet again, another ones opinion.  But it wasn't on the worst logos of 2016!!

So you're saying we weren't the worst?  Yay!!  Kinda reminds me of this dating service from Mad TV. :)

At least a board is picking from multiple logos, unlike what Ed Schafer did.

While Ed had the final say, his voice was far from the only one heard. Again, they tried to please too many people.

No one else had a say on the logo, SME came out with 3 logos which no one else saw and Ed picked which one “he” liked best.

Could not these other variations be uncovered in a FOIA request?

 

I am sure a lot of people would be curious on the other submissions by SME.

What other submissions? SME Did the one 30 mins before the deadline, ... like a freshman doing their 1st term paper.
