In relation to Academics, it’s important to always keep yourself fresh. Remember, if you are teaching and showing outdated methods, then you might not be connecting with your students in the way you hoped or they might question your sources. In the art world, we don’t have to worry about this as much because of the nature of what we do, but it’s still important to keep yourself up to date.
UT Austin recently updated their academia identity system, and I thought it would be interesting if that were to happen here as well.
In the post, they show the simplification process of the UT Austin seal and how it turned into the academic symbol. Another important thing to note is that they didn’t change the entire university identity system.
I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.
