Hi Everyone!
Dr. Seher Awan (she, her, hers)

Hi Lauren :)
Dr. Seher Awan (she, her, hers)
13:04
We will take a formal poll using Zoom at the end of our meeting today
SANCHEK2@laccd.edu
30:51
the line work on the face and the back legs need work
Rahmani Byley
31:01
I like it but I don't think it's quite us.
Jen Shetland
31:01
i like the overall shape but for me it’s hard to tell that it’s a cougar.
Jen Shetland
31:06
it’s too sleek.
Rahmani Byley
31:42
Thinking it's the facial expression.
Ronald
34:51
I PASS ON THIS INE ALSO. DO NOT LIKE THE C OUGAR AT ALL
Jen Shetland
39:28
I like the shape of the cougar itself but overall it feels too abstract. If we are trying to redefine/reimagine the college, our cougar needs to be clear and defined as well.
Ronald
39:32
I like this image of the cougar, I agree the cougar should face the opposite way. I like how the tail curves up, ready for action.
Rahmani Byley
39:33
For 2 it might be better with Lauren's suggestions. I don't like the cougar being on top I think.
Johnel Barron
39:33
Jackson State University and Grambling State University have big cats in their logo with personality. Great examples.
Rachelle Thomas-Green
39:56
I was thinking the same on the direction of the cougar Lauren. I like the body shape, negative space, and lines. I also like that anyone could look at this cougar and feel represented because of the open detail in the face. This cougar looks intelligent, and ready for an opportunity like our students. Could define it a bit more.
Jen Shetland
40:09
I like the shape of the cougar itself but overall it feels too abstract. If we are trying to redefine/reimagine the college, our cougar needs to be clear and defined as well.
WILSONK3@laccd.edu
40:53
I like the “flames” I see in the cougar.
WILSONK3@laccd.edu
41:51
Almost like a phoenix , like the ashes from the Watts Rebellion
Dr. Seher Awan (she, her, hers)
42:01
I like that Kathy :)
Kimberly McBride
44:29
It might be interesting to see Cougar coming out of the ashes behind the LASC with flames without getting too busy.
Rahmani Byley
44:50
Front facing
LaTanya Drake
45:36
Definitely palm trees to represent "LA"
Rachelle Thomas-Green
46:24
I'd like to see the cityscape within the "LASC" letters, as well as palm trees, in a way that is not too complex.
LaTanya Drake
46:40
Yes
Kimberly McBride
46:42
I'm concerned about the palm trees. I'm concerned it will become to busy when we scale down.
Rahmani Byley
46:48
I like that idea Rachelle
Kimberly McBride
49:07
Exactly.
Rachelle Thomas-Green
49:50
I agree with Lauren. Not my fave by far.
Dr. Seher Awan (she, her, hers)
50:09
Not a fan of the hunched over look. I feel like the profiles will be more timeless
Rahmani Byley
50:45
The curved leg is not right. I like the detail though. Perhaps the cityscape could work behind him?
Lauren Evans
50:47
I agree Dr. Awan!
Chauncine Stewart
50:48
I don't particularly care for the hunched over look either
LaTanya Drake
50:55
Not a fan of this one, the Cougar is front facing but the body language and posture is akward
Kimberly McBride
50:58
The position and tone of the entire design is not a good one for me. They are battling each other.
WILSONK3@laccd.edu
51:00
Pass
LaTanya Drake
51:13
And the face
Ronald
51:14
I also agree with Lauren. This image would be difficult to add to a pen or pencil. Do not like the cougar paw hanging over the letters
Kimberly McBride
51:32
This one is not scaleable
Damien Danielly
51:41
the crowd has spoken lol
Dr. Seher Awan (she, her, hers)
51:43
Agreed about the blocking of the LASC with the paw. I like the clean LASC
LaTanya Drake
53:20
Don't particularly care for the shield
Rahmani Byley
53:22
I like this one a lot. It's bold and fierce. The size of lettering doesn't seem right. Not a fan of the shield background overall.
Dr. Jamail D. Carter
53:45
I personally feel this is the best one I have seen thus far
Ms. C
53:47
This one is my favorite so far.
Jen Shetland
54:03
I like the piece where the cougar breaks out of the shield and breaks down that
Jen Shetland
54:06
"wall"
LaTanya Drake
54:44
The shield unfortunately gives an undertone of law enforcement which creates an adversarial contrast with our community and law enforcement
WILSONK3@laccd.edu
55:17
One of my favorites…but I’m a Raider fan…shields are everything to me
LaTanya Drake
55:26
I do like the cougar
Dr. Seher Awan (she, her, hers)
55:33
I agree with Lauren. It feels basic to me, like we've seen it before and many people have logos who look like this
Rachelle Thomas-Green
55:49
I love the progression of this one and LOVE the shield. In order to set us apart I think cityscape and palm trees would be good to make it unique. I also like the side angle.
Rahmani Byley
56:03
Yes, Rachelle. I agree.
Ronald
56:47
For this one, I do not like this logo, but I do like the design of the cougar. I would like to see how this cougar face looks on image number 2
LaTanya Drake
57:04
Yes
Rachelle Thomas-Green
57:13
Good poingt Ron!
Rachelle Thomas-Green
57:21
point*
Robert Arroyo
58:30
I agree
Jen Shetland
58:51
I agree with concerns about the palm trees making a logo too busy.
Dr. Seher Awan (she, her, hers)
59:37
i think this head on #2 could be a possibiliy
LaTanya Drake
59:51
Yes, Dr. Awan!
Rachelle Thomas-Green
01:00:00
I could see the geometrical shape of a couple of buildings behind his neck. easier to scale down than palm trees.
Dr. Seher Awan (she, her, hers)
01:02:18
Love this one but palm trees are too busy
Jen Shetland
01:02:21
I like the idea of what this could be and I like how the cougar shapes and fills in with LASC. I don’t think I’ve seen a logo like this before. However, I think it could be hard to read/tell what it is on a smaller scale and the cougar could get lost.
Rahmani Byley
01:02:45
It's complicated. Looks sphinx right now.
Rahmani Byley
01:03:36
I do like it better in color on the top one. Not the bottom one so much.
Ms. C
01:03:53
I am trying to imagine this logo on a shirt. Green is not our color, Gives me ELAC vibes.
Rachelle Thomas-Green
01:04:08
Agreed. Haven't seen a logo like this before Jen. It gives me the sense of looking through an LASC lens. Love the colors.
Jen Shetland
01:05:16
I like what Rachelle is saying about the LASC lens. It makes me think of the college as a hidden gem within the community
Dr. Seher Awan (she, her, hers)
01:05:24
Agreed more definition in the face
Lauren Evans
01:06:12
Great point Kimberly!
WILSONK3@laccd.edu
01:06:24
Good eye!
LaTanya Drake
01:06:28
Yes, I like that Kimberly
Rachelle Thomas-Green
01:06:37
Great feedback Kimberly! #LASCpride
Dr. Seher Awan (she, her, hers)
01:07:56
Having lived in both states, it is different :) Our palm trees are better!
Elmer Cardona
01:09:01
I would avoid crowded little details. Specially because logos are used in all sizes as small as business cards those logos tend to loose their details.
Ms. C
01:11:25
Really this logo looks more like fatigues. Visually impaired may not see the cougar.
Dr. Seher Awan (she, her, hers)
01:12:57
I think cougars have round ears not pointy ears?
Rachelle Thomas-Green
01:13:10
You could put a white oval around the overall design on a black pencil/shirt/notebook, etc.
Dr. Seher Awan (she, her, hers)
01:13:17
add depth so it's not so monochromatic
Rahmani Byley
01:13:49
It looks like a sphinx right now.
Rachelle Thomas-Green
01:14:25
Yes, Dr. Awan, more layers/depth
Kimberly McBride
01:14:54
That's a good point.
Kimberly McBride
01:15:04
Oval round
LaTanya Drake
01:15:10
Oval ears
Chauncine Stewart
01:18:16
I'm not a fan of this one.
Dr. Seher Awan (she, her, hers)
01:18:40
Cougar is very bulky, super buff and not very agile looking
LaTanya Drake
01:19:05
Thank you everyone for letting me share my thoughts. I will see you in the next meeting. Have a fantastic day!
Rahmani Byley
01:19:08
#6 I like the second one, it needs some work so that it fits within a certain space.
LaTanya Drake
01:19:29
Not a fan of this one :)
Ronald
01:19:55
Yes, I with Dr Awan, the cougar looks way too buff
Rachelle Thomas-Green
01:20:32
Not my fave. I like the palm trees though. Good point about Puma Damien...and Ben I was rocking my pumas too.
Damien Danielly
01:20:35
I like depending on the logo as a whole
Rahmani Byley
01:20:41
Might be better if it was city scape instead.
Dr. Seher Awan (she, her, hers)
01:20:46
I liked some of the other options better
Dr. Seher Awan (she, her, hers)
01:20:56
these look a little like weeds
Rahmani Byley
01:21:09
Or marijuana.
Dr. Seher Awan (she, her, hers)
01:21:18
LOL which weed ;)
Rahmani Byley
01:21:27
LOL
Rachelle Thomas-Green
01:21:29
Hahaha!
Kimberly McBride
01:21:32
I don't like logos with backgrounds. We can always add and delete, but it get complicated.
Kimberly McBride
01:21:49
*gets
Robert Arroyo
01:22:40
Not a fan of the palm trees, but could them being added later. not on the logo.
Damien Danielly
01:24:41
great comments Kimberly
John Raasch
01:26:29
Yes, Ben and Laure. I think the letters look better in all the logos where they don't have the outline around them.
Rahmani Byley
01:26:30
On 7 not sure if this is exactly what I envisioned with the cougar family but it's close. I was thinking more the outline of a family of cougars all going in one direction forward.
Jen Shetland
01:26:43
I think something like this could work for CDC but not for the main college logo.
Rachelle Thomas-Green
01:26:48
Would be great for CDC
Kimberly McBride
01:26:58
Great idea for CDC!
Dr. Seher Awan (she, her, hers)
01:26:59
cougar cubs would be adorable for the CDC :)
GREYJ@laccd.edu
01:27:10
yes!
Damien Danielly
01:27:11
lol
GREYJ@laccd.edu
01:27:43
we do need a cub
GREYJ@laccd.edu
01:27:54
but not logo
Damien Danielly
01:28:05
lol
Robert Arroyo
01:28:25
Same. Not a fan of the logo, but cool for cdc
Cosby
01:28:29
need a mother and father with her cub
John Raasch
01:28:49
This is the best looking palm tree.
Rachelle Thomas-Green
01:32:13
I made a wrong choice in the poll.
SANCHEK2@laccd.edu
01:32:22
I accidentally voted for 6 instead of 5
Kimberly McBride
01:34:43
Drum Roll!
Rachelle Thomas-Green
01:35:08
My vote s/b 5a, 2, 4
Rachelle Thomas-Green
01:35:16
I picked 3 instead of 4
Rahmani Byley
01:38:57
Flip the direction, more definition on the cougar and remove the box.
Chauncine Stewart
01:39:25
I'd like to see it in color, change the direction of the cougar.
Chauncine Stewart
01:39:42
Maybe see it with and without a face
Ronald
01:40:18
image 2 would like to see cougar facing opposite direction. Definitely remove the border from the lettering, would like to see how image 4 head looks on image 2
WILSONK3@laccd.edu
01:40:43
#2 change direction of cougar, remove box around LASC letters, less definition in cougar
Rachelle Thomas-Green
01:41:06
Change direction, love the clean lines. I think Dr. Wilson metioned it reminded her of flames which ties into the history of creating the campus after the LA Uprising and rising from the ashes.
GREYJ@laccd.edu
01:41:10
agree with chauncine
Rachelle Thomas-Green
01:41:59
Yes, Chauncine with a face and without.
GREYJ@laccd.edu
01:43:01
I was thinking the same Dr. Awan
Rahmani Byley
01:45:40
No shield, no box better sizing
Dr. Seher Awan (she, her, hers)
01:46:48
agreed
Rahmani Byley
01:46:52
It is not modern
WILSONK3@laccd.edu
01:46:56
Remove shield on #4
Dr. Seher Awan (she, her, hers)
01:46:57
lots of people have shields
Dr. Seher Awan (she, her, hers)
01:47:00
almost a high school look
Dr. Seher Awan (she, her, hers)
01:47:22
unleash the cougar!
Yvonne Owens
01:47:28
I like the shield and I also see it as a college pin
John Raasch
01:47:30
This face seems super aggressive.
Rahmani Byley
01:48:09
Softer on the aggression face
Robert Arroyo
01:48:29
I like this cougar, but not the shield. would also like to see it face forward. Like its coming at you.
Lauren Evans
01:50:31
I agree!!
Rahmani Byley
01:50:39
Agreed
Rachelle Thomas-Green
01:51:45
My favorite design, number 2 is a close second.
Francoise Rosero
01:52:02
Can they show the logos on one sheet?
Francoise Rosero
01:52:07
I was late sorry
Rahmani Byley
01:52:36
Make him look more cougar like. No palms. Front leg and paws less horse hoof like.
Rahmani Byley
01:52:52
Tail work.
Francoise Rosero
01:53:21
Not seeing the other choices. I think the logo should be more of a cougar head only. Not the body.
Dr. Seher Awan (she, her, hers)
01:53:41
Francoise, apologies we are wrapping up the discussion. The recording will be sent out so you can see the options after this meeting
Francoise Rosero
01:55:23
Thank you Dr. Awan.
Kimberly McBride
01:55:27
I agree.
Ronald
01:55:53
not much for this one
Yvonne Owens
01:55:56
I think I would like to see a growl on this
Damien Danielly
01:56:28
I don’t have anything to add to this last one
Rachelle Thomas-Green
01:57:22
Thank you for allowing us to share our opinions. Great work Task Force!
Kimberly McBride
01:57:23
What about some girth or thickness but not bulkiness.
Jen Shetland
01:58:13
Thank you Mitera for all of your designs!
Dr. Seher Awan (she, her, hers)
01:58:14
Thank you all!
Dr. Seher Awan (she, her, hers)
01:58:16
Great discussion :)
Rahmani Byley
01:58:19
Great meeting
Lauren Evans
01:58:20
Thank you all!!!!
Kimberly McBride
01:58:21
Thanks for everything. This was a fun meeting!!
Cosby
01:58:21
the tail should be seen
Cosby
01:58:25
fully
WILSONK3@laccd.edu
01:58:32
Fantastic!
Yvonne Owens
01:58:47
Thank you Dr. Awan for inviting me.
Rahmani Byley
02:00:13
Thank you!
Damien Danielly
02:00:18
thanks
