MSU students and fans alike seem to be coming to a general consensus on the new Spartan logo, and that consensus is negative.
For those of you not schooled on this controversy of logo-gate, here is a side-by-side view of the old and the proposed new logo for the Spartans, courtesy of The Detroit News:
Current and future logo
Pretty radical changes, eh?
The newspaper website also offers readers the opportunity to design and upload their own Michigan State Spartans logo here, but I wanted to test mine out here first.
As an alum and fan of their big brother rival The University Of Michigan, I felt a sympathetic duty to work dilligently and tirelessly on creating a new logo my little brothers and sisters in East Lansing could relate to and rally around. I believe the said logo needs to successfully communicate their brand.
I have two prototypes currently.
The first is a "back to the roots" celebration of MSU as the first agricultural college founded in 1855.
And of course, what fan of the UM/MSU "rivalry" is not aware of the Cherry Street Couch sacrifices after another loss (and even the occasional upset win)?
No need to thank me Sparty nation. I'm just happy to help.
