Responses to the University of California’s new redesigned logo are streaming in from all corners of the Twittersphere. Here are some of the characterizations of the new collegiate crest, which is loathed by many and, if Twitter is an accurate reflection of mass opinion, loved by next to none.

One recurring comment is that the logo looks as if it’s “still loading.” (Here’s the illustration.)

Below, we’ve collected a handful of tweets responding to the logo. You can find more if you follow Twitter’s #UClogo hashtag. 

@PhilipChuang: “As a Univ of California alum, am horrified w/new UC logo; it belongs on a Walmart product, not on a university.”

@kcclaveria: “A not-so-shining example of what results when you hire an intern to do your graphic design.”

@chandrasharma: “UC needs to take a page out of the @Starbucks playbook – you can modernize your logo without bastardizing it.”

@NatashaSingh: “I think my internet connection is down because it looks like the #UCLogo is still loading #sayitaintso #bringbacktheoldUClogo.”

@CarrieStead: “The new #UClogo is embarrassing. Even those get your degree online “schools” have more prestigious branding.”

@sherrymain: “One thing that is very apparent is that ppl DO have a vested interest in the UC system.”

@hellomaleka: “Best comment about the new UC logo: “Looks like a bad icon of a banana in a shopping bag” #uclogo.”

@davidjohnsonpdx: “The new #uclogo bears an eerie resemblance to a flushing toilet. Not exactly the image you want to communicate about your university. “

@chriscameron: “#UClogo fading “C” does that represent not quite finishing the job? Or is it the fading State financial support?”

@kevinmagiclam: “when did everyone become a designer #everyoneisacritic #uclogo.”

    University of California's re-designing of logo may receive different reactions, some are positive,, some are not, but then, what matters most is that the final logo is a testimony that all the members of school directors, faculties and student council has agreed in an image that will carry the image of their school.
