U-M clarifies which block 'M' it wants media to use
|U-M issued the following notice to the media|
At The Oakland Press, we recently received a politely-crafted letter from U-M Public & Media Relations requesting we use just the two latest versions of the famed insignia. The notice also asks that "we," assuming this is a standard letter sent to all local media, remove any of the offending versions from our archives.
|Not a "blocked "M"|
That's an interesting justification coming on the heels of the ever-changing uniforms that have found their way into the Wolverines' locker rooms of late.
We try to use the latest versions on logos, but it's strange a program which is constantly changing it's look is insisting media stick to two of its logos.
