AFTER MANY MONTHS of deliberation and discussion, Trinity College Dublin has revealed its new logo to the world.

The re-branding sees a change from to royal blue-and-gold design to a more modern blue-and-white.

The consultation process for the new design has involved input from more than 40 groups from across Trinity’s college community, according to Trinity paper ‘The University Times’.

A logotype that was presented in April received significant opposition from groups within the University who were opposed to the name change on the logo from ‘Trinity College Dublin’ to ‘Trinity College – University of Dublin’.

The new logo maintains the full ‘Trinity College Dublin’ name while making clear that it is also ‘The University of Dublin’.

The cost of the re-branding initiative is believed to be around €100,000.

Groups consulted on the change of logo were allowed to vote on whether ‘The Univeristy of Dublin’ would appear on the logo as well as what shade of blue that would be used in its redesign.
