Homecoming Reveals 2014 Logo

The fate of thousands of t-shirts, sweatshirts, and other miscellaneous Penn State attire has been determined. The 2014 Homecoming Executive Committee revealed this year’s logo at halftime at the Blue White game this weekend, which includes the Nittany Lion leaping forward while simultaneously forming 2014.

Like every year, the logo is designed by a Penn State student. This year’s honors went to Penn State junior graphic design major Kailyn Moore.

“Each member of the junior graphic design class creates a logo based off of the theme presented by the directors,” said Public Relations Director Kristine Zangrillo. “The directors then chose which logo best represents the theme of this year’s Homecoming.”

It’s a bold design choice for Homecoming. I’m a fan personally, but any time you go with an abstract design, it’s bound to draw some critics. With more than 600 likes on our Facebook page, it seems like this year’s choice is an early hit.

“The year of 2014 is a big year for Penn State as we welcome a new coach and president to our community,” Moore said. “I wanted to reflect this concept in the Homecoming logo using a lion that’s leaping forward to symbolize pride, purpose, and prosperity.”
