SERIOUSLY though I can only hope we did not get someone to design that font. It's ugly as $iena and we've been using it for the past few years. It's almost like back in the early 90's futuristic type font.

I think it's also time to drop the leading U, but we are too far deep into using it.

I trust everyone on this board can design a better wordmark than that

Man, I don't mind it but I'm disappointed in the borderline ZERO selection of items...

I don't believe they can use any brand names to produce any of the products either since the bookstore has a stranglehold on that.

Like what's going on with the A? Why is it lopsided lol.

As someone told me, it looks like someone turned on an old Windows 95 PC and opened up Microsoft paint then picked a random font and typed UALBANY.

As someone who is into web design and design in general as a hobby...I think the font is fine. Could it better? Sure. Is it the worst font known to man? No way.

That being said, like Click, I'd LOVE to get an authentic replica FB and maybe MBB jersey but they sell smocks or nothing at all. Heck, I had to get my fitted UAlbany cap on eBay from a total 3rd party for Pete's sake. I also bought UAlbany mini FB helmets for my office on eBay because, again, not sold by the school or athletic department. I currently work from home so not a big deal but if I ever go back to working in an office I definitely want EVERYONE to know who/what UA is and quite literally, that's barely possible.

Whoever signed that stupid contract limiting what the actual Athletic Dept. can sell vs what the bookstore can sell was an idiot. When is that dumb contract up?

If we didn’t spend money on someone outside to redesign it then I’ll lay off. If we did then we wasted money. 

Bookstore has a Nike football replica jersey.

Sucks it's only #44. But I might have to scoop this even though I always wanted #3 (my number).

Just showed this to someone that does graphic design work.   Her response was a bit technical "Yuck".  Then "Looks like a cross between graphic writing/graffiti lettering and ms dos/unix text. Ugly"

After 35 years of marriage my better half still refers to the place as Albany State so if I could find one of those old gems we’d be golden. 

But I agree, not exceptional and why bother except to generate more sales?

Sometimes change for the sake of change is no change at all .... but a step back ... current UALBANY logo has been very appealing to me .... always gets comments when I am in Maine for vacation or in Vermont ....new design does not excite me ... holding on to my current stuff

I used to have some gold colored shirts etc with purple lettering.  Almost impossible to find it anymore.
