Gallaudet Gets New Logo

New Logo Represents Gallaudet University’s Bilingual Mission

Gallaudet University ushered in a new era today with the unveiling of a new university logo. The symbolic design of the logo represents the university’s bilingual mission by portraying “Gallaudet University” in American Sign Language (ASL) as well as in English, the two languages contained in the mission. The ASL component is demonstrated by the two arches meeting at a point. The design represents the movement of the sign for “Gallaudet” which is the letter “g” formed with the forefinger and thumb making an arch across the brow and meeting near the temple.

  • I do understand that it’s relation to sign by say G from big to small. However, in my visual, that logo looks so cheap.
