the Block M
Calling all computer design specialists!
I need some help and I thought that this might be useful to some other MGoMembers as well. I want to create a special avatar/logo/picture for use on this site and others as well (Twitter, etc.) but just don't have the technical know-how. I have a simple design that will take someone learned in all things design about 2 seconds to finish and am wondering if there is anyone that would be willing to help me (and others). If you're in the business then this might even be a good marketing opportunity for you (?) as I'm sure anyone that uses your services will pay you proper homage. Some of us might even be willing to pay for your services . . .
Leave a comment below if you have the time and interest in helping me (and others) and I'll find a way to get in touch. Thanks in advance!
MODS: Please feel free to delete this as soon as I get a few responses. I don't want this to clutter the Board but I thought it might benefit some others as well.
A very observant MGoUser (I can’t remember who it was though) mentioned in a thread about the Sugar Bowl Jerseys that ALL of Michigan’s athletics jerseys now sport a Block M, across all sports. This wasn’t always the case. The Block M just found its way onto the “normal” home and away football jerseys this year (on the neck)
Not just with Football Jerseys, we’ve seen Block Ms appearing all over campus like never before. No longer is the “split M”
Acceptable, at this point, it’s Block M or Bust.

Now this isn’t a rant, and I’m not trying to criticize Michigan for the proliferation of the Block M. In fact, Michigan is just following current marketing and branding trends. All over the corporate world the trend is towards the simple. Get rid of words, use symbols, and use them everywhere. Simplicity is king.
A few examples of the corporate world:
Michigan is just following industry trends at this point with the Block M. One simple symbol. Everywhere. Get used to seeing this, it’s not going anywhere.
