I sat in on a meeting where reasons for logo change were given:

The design team's research found:

1) A fair percentage of subjects did not link the pylon logos to the War Memorial and thought it represented something completely different.

2) Some subjects made the point that "Invent the Future" gave VT the appearance that it was only focused on engineering and science.

I think the goal of the work was for the future design to be less internally focused (every student and alum connects with the War Memorial) and to be more externally focused (if you have never been on campus, you don't know what the pylon logo represents).

That's all I got. Since the presentation was about 30 minutes, it appears that I forgot about 25 minutes worth of reasons given for the change. Too many beers at TOTS is coming back to haunt me.
