Gdańsk University of Technology Logo, Before and After

About: (Est. 1945) “The Gdańsk University of Technology (pol. Politechnika Gdańska) is a technical university in Gda?sk-Wrzeszcz, and one of the oldest universities in Poland. It has nine faculties and more than 24 thousand undergraduate, as well as about 400 doctoral students. In 2004 it employed 2500 people, including 1200 academics.” (Source: Wikipedia)

Design by: mamastudio.

Ed.’s Notes: It’s nice to know that it’s not only U.S. students that act all douchey and oppose university logos just because. (See Facebook link below). It’s even more annoying when the logo is actually good: those lion drawings are pretty sweet. Bigger view of the logo below (or after the jump).

Relevant links: Facebook logo opposition page. Press Release (in Polish).

Select quote (Google translated): “Decorative form of lions holding a shield replaced with a regular rhythm figures geometric contour lines. Silhouette of lions and a list of the initials of the name of the university with the emblem of the city of Gdansk in the shield are inseparable, linked at the level of the whole symbolic and figurative meaning.”
