Granite Staters Crowd-Source New UNH Logo For Free

(DURHAM, NH) A group of concerned New Hampshire citizens is joining together to do for free what a New York marketing firm couldn’t do for $100,000- come up with decent logo for the University of New Hampshire.
After news broke that UNH was spending $100,000 for a new logo, and the wave of disappointment at the three potential logos unveiled by the school, Wildcat Logo Search formed on Facebook to crowd-source a new and better logo for free.
“While many of us question whether the iconic silhouette of Thompson Hall needs to be replaced, much less at a cost of $100,000, most everyone agrees that UNH students, alumni, and friends can do better,” said Grant Bosse, who founded Wildcat Logo Search on Facebook.
Wildcat Logo Search will post volunteer submissions, and promote discussion on which new logo, if any, UNH should adopt. Outraged UNH students have also taken to Facebook to save Thompson Hall as the face of the school.
If Facebook members have ideas for a logo, but lack the artistic touch, the Concord Monitor has offered the use of its graphics department. Bosse is a Monitor Columnist, and will be soliciting public input in this Sunday’s paper.
“Wildcat Logo Search is an experiment,” Bosse added. “Can we pool our talents, save some money, and show UNH a better way to update the school’s image?”
