VCU unveiled their highly anticipated new logo and visual identity series, and as expected, reactions have been mixed. Not surprisingly, the Rickabaugh Graphics design wasn’t immediately embraced by every VCU fan of all the cities of all the worlds. Many like it (myself included, I love it in fact), many don’t. But this was to be expected. Has anyone ever tried agreeing on a paint color with their spouse? Imagine how hard that is, then include all the other design variables outside of just simply picking a color.
Here’s just a sampling of the positive, the negative and the weird from the wonderful world of Twitter.
As a VCU Graphic Design graduate, a former VCU athlete, and a Richmond web designer, I’m actually insulted by this new logo.

Anyone who doesn’t like the new VCU logo probably buys fake LV bags and shops at Old Navy
