Yikes!! Who signed off on these?

Post by Naked Bull Rider » May 27th, 2020, 11:23 am

I've been seeing defensive coaches tweeting these awful graphics. Is there any oversight or approvals process when it comes to digital content? Does Tyler Knowles have to green light it? These things look like they were made using a mixture of Microsoft Paint and PowerPoint. The font choices are especially puzzling.

It is embarrassing that recruits see this, rival institutions see this, and USU alums see this. Do better! You have the time!

I understand your desire to see everything up to the highest standard (and our media team has a pretty great standard), but it appears you've not seen half the graphics that these HS kids use to announce finalist lists or commitments. This is high class by that standard.

The text and font choices are pretty terrible. If they fixed those it wouldn't be as bad.

Wouldn't it be nice if we had a Visual Identity Guide that set standards and uniformity on these kinds of things...

Those are pathetic. Did they hire the junior high computer tech class to do them as an assignment?

LOL! Looks like web design from the late 90's.

yeah the font is really bad which is too bad since I like the idea of highlighting players that made the NFL. It definitely shows it can be done here. I don't know our track record compared to other MW teams (besides Boise) but we seem to regularly put guys in the NFL. That needs to be highlighted in recruiting battles.

When you see things like this, it's likely it's one of the coaches or interns on the football staff putting it together quickly. There are people in the athletics department that make graphics and content and I believe there is also a company on retainer, but often are difficult to get it done in a timely manner. Used to be worse before someone "left" the athletics department. It def isn't high quality, but they're trying to get content out there, be easy on them.
