I can't find it anywhere on the MU athletics or ticket website. Maybe I'm not good at google? Maybe their audience was just current season ticket holders?

It's been on just about every email they have sent. I was confused as I am a current STH and called them. They said the deposit note is only for perspective STHs and I think they cleaned up that wording.

I thought it was just new STHs actually.

Interesting. Nothing on their website or on socials I could find. If a tree falls in the woods and nobody hears it, is it the MU Marketing team's fault?

Maybe they don't serve you those ads because they know you are cheap? If you want to make your deposit, here you go:

Funny - I was just about the post the link from my email, and it's exactly the same.  You'd think there'd be a unique identifier in there!

Or that they'd put it on the website...

But also...to clarify again, and avoid confusion, also from the email: Current Season Ticket Members do not need to place a deposit at this time.

Leeds road jerseys based clothing line.  Way better than Wisconsin black jerseys.
Luke 6:45   ...A good man produces goodness from the good in his heart; an evil man produces evil out of his store of evil.   Each man speaks from his heart's abundance...

It is better to be fearless and cheerful than cheerless and fearful.

Not really sure where to put this, but is this a new MU logo for the university? It’s been prominent on social media for awhile, but I thought it was just part of National Marquette Day or fundraising campaign.

Does MU work with an ad agency or do they handle everything in-house? They need to get Don Draper on this account.

And yet still an upgrade over the 10-years-past-dated MU logo of today.

Marquette's logos are still the same as before.

Perhaps but they seem to be using that alternative MU script a lot - on the social media accounts and this new statue thing.

It doesn't look good at all.

The statue thing is just a thing. I wouldn't necessarily read too much into that.

The social media stuff is interesting in that the logo isn't shown anywhere on their logo page. Is it because it's something new? Is it because the current logo isn't great with the small icons on Twitter and LinkedIn? No idea.

Agreed the new logo, if that’s what it is, is not good.  For a short term promotion maybe.  Long term, the logos that we have are fine and need to continue going forward for consistency.  The logos that MU had when I attended were terrible and non descript.  The logos now have been good for years and help with the identity of the school.   Don’t fix what’s not broken.

I thought that the new MU lettering was actually branding specifically for alumni weekend and the social media changed to match for alumni weekend. As dumb as it sounds, I think this may just be that they forgot to switch the social media accounts back to the original logo after alumni weekend.

I guess I thought that until the letters on campus. You are right, I think the change was right around the reunion and had similar lettering.

They have the cartoonish colors in Spirit Shop too on apparel.  Maybe left over from Alumni Weekend too?  Looks crappity.

I'm not saying it's broken, but this is pretty meh. Marquette Hall isn't some instantly recognizable structure, and its a pretty busy image.  Most logos are more clean and simple these days.

For instance, each of these are pretty simple.  Creighton and Georgetown just use words. Xavier uses their athletic marks and fonts, which is pretty rare, but works in this case.
