    Earlier this week Oregon State, based in Corvallis, unveiled Pentagram’s redesign of the university’s institutional logo featuring a new academic crest and word mark set in the contemporary Roman typeface Newzald. The Pentagram team chose the typeface, designed by the Klim Type Foundry based in New Zealand, because it struck the right balance between academic gravitas and the rugged ethos and outdoorsy courses offered by the university. The completely revamped identity system replaces the school’s previous academic identity–the letters “OSU” set in a condensed san-serif face, which was adopted in 2003.

    The simplified version of OSU's crest borrows symbolism from the original but is designed for today’s digital world.
