As a professional in the design field, I have often been told (aka
thrown in my face) that my team has no true logo, only a block M and a
really REALLY cool helmet.
This has happened on more than one occasion, and I am quick to point
out the various 'alternate' graphics we've seen over the years,
including the crouching wolverine on the block M, the new helmet wing
logo we've seen the athletic department use, and even the old sailor
hat-wearing wolverine from the days of Bump Elliot.
SO... without further ado this is my first attempt at a new UofM WOLVERINE alternate logo.
This was actually conceived from an actual photograph of said vicious
mammal, though of course I took certain freedoms with aesthetic license
and of course adding the wings. I guess I am looking for criticism, feedback,
what the collective MGOBLOG community might like to see, etc. in this
little pet freelance project. I'll likely continue with this idea as
free time permits, so look for more in the conceivable future.
If in the future there seems to be a true consensus design agreed or otherwise non-hated upon by the MgoBlog community, who knows what we'd do with it? I would be more than willing to talk to Brian about tee shirts, or perhaps even using it on the site. That would only be fair after all of the free information I've perused here over the past few months. But that, of course, is another story.
