I got back into the office this morning to find this Edge Hill University College branded mug on my desk:
It’s quite likely that someone is trying to tell me something, but I think it’s great! I really like how the old logo’s “waves” have been turned on their side.
In the background you can see the new home of IT Services in the Durning Centre – more of that in a future post!
Update: Flickr which I use to host photos is playing up at the moment – might work if you look at the photos direct.
I’ve not walked in the front entrance of Edge Hill for a week or two so didn’t notice when these two huge banners with “1885-2010” and “125 Years” went up but I took a photo earlier. I really like it!
This logo was used in the early 1990s and is based on the Brush Script font.
Four Edge Hill “logos” snapped on an advert for hoodies. I quite like the look of the EHU one.
Introducing the new coat of arms, this article from the Autumn 2008 issue of Campus Link:
Edge Hill has recently unveiled a new coat of arms to mark the institution’s long tradition of higher education.
The heraldry tells the story of Edge Hill using the Red Rose of Lancashire and the Liver Bird, to reflext the University’s current location in Ormskirk, while looking back to the institution’s original location in Liverpool.
Edge Hill’s ideological origins are represented by the green and heliotrope (purple) of the sufragette movement and the use of gold, which is associated with generosity and elevation of the mind.
The coat or arms also include the Edge Hill motto – “In Scientia Opportunitas” – which translates as “In knowledge, opportunity”.
Did you know?
Supporting the shield are a lion, representing strength, bravery and magnanimity, and a stag, symbolising wisdom, regeneration, peace and harmony.
The waves logo introduced in the 1990s and had several variation until Edge Hill gained University status in 2006.
The above logo was used during 1985 for the centenary of the College.
