The new Stanford University logo is both unappealing aesthetically and lacks the prestige and elegance of its predecessor. Great design is everywhere on the web, especially in Silicon Valley. There's no reason that a new, web-optimized logo cannot also be beautiful and capture the spirit of the university in a way that resonates both with current students and alumni. Add your voice to this petition to urge Lisa Lapin, associate VP of university communications, to change the logo back to the original typeface or contract a new design that reflects the spirit of the University.
