New Gally Logo
Gallaudet University has unveiled a new logo for the school. Administrators believe its the first university logo incorporating both English and American Sign Language. It replaces the old logo of a framed letter "G" that's been around for 25 years. The new logo includes a pair of arcing lines (you can see it below on DeafNewsToday.com), which serves as a reminder of the Gallaudet symbol in sign language, formed by a swooping motion of the forefinger and thumb. The school gathered several thousand comments on the logo before finalizing it. President T. Alan Hurwitz says “Throughout the logo selection process we had an unprecedented level of participation by Gallaudet students, faculty, staff, and alumni as well as members of the deaf community throughout the country.” What do you think about it?
