We asked our fans to view the website and provide feedback . Golden Eagle Nation answered the call! From Wednesday, November 12th until Friday, November 21st we had:
"I actually like them both! I'd be happy with either one! SMTTT!"
"Traditional for sure! Class of 2003!"
"I approve of either, I think it's great that you are asking for feedback."
"While both logos look great, we prefer the traditional one - looks tougher - like it is in the opponents face."
"Dynamic eye logo all day! Looks fierce and more modern. SMTTT!"
"I vote for the Traditional Eye. It is more like the original eagle that represents Southern Miss."
"I prefer the 'Dynamic' Eagle. Great Job!"
"...Traditional Eye - This Eagle logo looks more like he ready for battle, ready to go. More a look of confident poise."
"...The traditional eye Eagle logo is by far the better option."
"I like the Dynamic Eye"
"The traditional eye looks cleaner to me. I really like the design overall."
After careful consideration of our stakeholders' feedback and consultation with Licensing Resource Group (LRG), Rare Design and our outside licensing attorney, we have initiated the trademark registration for the "Traditional Eye" logo.
An application for trademark registration has been submitted to the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for the “Traditional Eye” logo.
The entire trademark registration process is expected to take 6 months to a year.
When the application is sufficiently through the trademark examination process, we will release the logo to our licensing partners to begin production of merchandise.
LRG has been in contact with all of our licensing partners about the logo change and will work with each of our vendors to ensure merchandise is available for purchase.
