Purple & Gold?

WHOA! So, based on Corey's comment yesterday, I was curious if Taylor was still closed today... and I went to the website and, whoa, it's different. Just threw me off for a minute, I guess. They are making liberal use of the redesigned cross-and-bucket logo, and the colors scheme is ... maroon & tan? I suppose that's easier on the eyes than the school colors, purple and gold, but it gives the site a different look (For a purple and gold comparison, check out the Athletics page).




Maybe someone else knows when the change was made. I usually visit the site at least weekly, so it had to have been recently. This is the second redesign in not-very-many years, but I suppose it was required, with the new logo & colors.

Actually, that change was just rolled out yesterday. I'm told the new background color is called cappuccino. And yes, offices closed for the 2nd day in a row. I'm expecting Jesus to come back any time now. :)

Also...

The Athletics dept is fanatical about the traditional purple and gold colors. They have reserved the right to continue using them on their portion of the site no matter what scheme is used on the main page.

"cappuccino" - Ha.

And, I reminder the last redesign they did, and the bright purple-and-yellow athletics page that really didn't fit the design. And, here it is again. It's really good the whole site isn't those colors.

Oh :-( I loved the last design so much! I always went to the Taylor page for inspiration when working on websites. Bad Ashley for not keeping some screen captures! I don't like this new one as much... although I guess it's not as bad as it could be. That dark plum color in the background seems to rub me the wrong way... Wait, it's called cappuccino? Is that referring to the tannish color?

I like the original logo better. It was more classic and timely. It looked almost regal, *sigh*. The new one is too contemporary. It doesn't say to me, "This school's been around since the 1800's," that's for sure.
