Bring back the old University logo or create a competition for students to design one.

I was stunned when I saw the new University logo and the first thing that came to my mind was the Glenfiddich Whisky. I don't understand the decision behind changing the logo and I think that the knew one is not well-designed (poor stag has no place for antlers). I'm aware that personal taste is personal but I suspect many students may agree with me. I wish in the future we can all have a chance to decide on a university logo as it is something we use and see every day.

Hi - thanks so much for your submission. I think this is a really important matter of student voice, and so after accepting your submission, I immediately raised this with the University Executive, and spoke directly with the University's Communications directorate. As you may have seen from my latest 'Weekly Highlights' post on Facebook, I received a positive response to this suggestion, and it was agreed in principle that in any future refresh of the University logo, co-creation initiatives involving student voice could be really beneficial, particularly given the design skills of our WSA students. I appreciate this doesn't impact on the current logo and doesn't mitigate against your dissatisfaction, but I hope it goes some way in reassuring you that the University have been made aware of student feeling, and will consider it seriously in future.

- Ben.
