University Of New Hampshire Unveils New 'Crisp, Contemporary' Logo

University of New Hampshire

The University of New Hampshire has a new logo.

The state’s largest public four-year university revealed its new look at the men’s hockey game Saturday night.

In a press release, UNH described it as a “crisp, contemporary shield” that “strongly displays ‘NH’.”

The logo will be used by the University’s three campuses in Durham, Manchester and Concord, and for the university’s athletics programs.

The university says the “blue and white logo expresses UNH’s official colors and symbolically represents the blue water and white snow that draw so many people to the Granite State.

“The University of New Hampshire now has one symbol that conveys boldness and clarity around our mission of innovation and success for our students and alumni while connecting New Hampshire with the global economy,” President Mark Huddleston said in the press release.

Huddleston opened the process to the public in May, after the first three proposals for the new logo sparked strong negative reactions.

Some also criticized the university for spending $100,000 on the initial proposals.

Firm Chermayeff & Geismar & Haviv worked with UNH on the design.

An advisory panel of students, alumni, and staff ultimately chose the final version of the design, reviewing ideas and suggestions from the public.

You can buy t-shirts with the new logo starting Dec. 16 here.
