That new logo is all unholy kinds of wrongness.

I'm not a graphic designer or anything like one, but I've heard you don't want to use gradients in a logo because it doesn't travel well to t-shirts, patches, and other stuff. Not only that, but it's too simple. The colors clash, and I think they would be invisible to certain kinds of colorblindness--lucky bastards. Finally, it doesn't convey any information or concepts about the university to the viewer.

Honestly, if I were in charge of that place, I'd be looking to fire anyone who approved, contributed to, or in any way enabled that abomination.

Caffeine has hindered my selection capabilities today, but these needed to be combined.

More like Prop-13 and that short-sighted Howard Jarvis.

WOAH, did everyone get this picture of UC Berkeley's new chancellor in the sidebar with that article?

I couldn't even read the article. He looks like a Daniel Clowes character brought to life by a Japanese CGI studio.
