    I'm interested to hear about people's thoughts on the current logo, which replaced the coat of arms as the university's default symbol in 2004.

    Personally I can't see why they did it.

    I quite like it. They probably did it because it's more adaptable to different layouts etc than the coat of arms. From a graphic design point of view (1), is way more effective than (2)!

    Haha, I shall yield on that front to the student of Computer Science. Perhaps I'm just too old school, but I just generally prefer the coat of arms!

    Abstracting away from the online world, what about the merchandise of the university? Currently they seem to be using the crest mostly. Do you reckon the logo would be better on clothing etc. as well?

    I dunno, I have seen the new logo on some items of clothing and it looks good, but I reckon they should still sell items with the crest on as well.

    I think your title of "Bristol's New Logo" is a bit misleading since they've had this one in place for 7 years now.

    Most universities have gone through a rebranding process in the past decade or so to make their logos more presentable and eye-catching, and generally just a bit more up to date. I was at Durham Uni when they went through theirs and there was an uproar that they changed from "University of Durham" to "Durham University".

    It's relative, I wasn't trying to mislead people. It was just to clarify which symbol I was talking about. Perhaps I should've put 'newer'.

    So what do you think about it? It's more eye-catching?

    I think the new one looks better for things like heading a website or documents etc. The crest is on the UoB teddy bear, which I like, and I want to buy a hoodie with the crest on it at some point (rather than the 'American' style ones), and I'd prefer the crest on a hoodie to the 'new' logo.
