Illinois State University Forensics Union is one of the top collegiate speech teams in the nation. Since 1857, the Union has won multiple team and individual championships. The Forensics Union has an amazing alumni history, including President Lincoln and Nelsan Ellis (star of True Blood). As the Union continues its excellence, the team wanted to revitalize its look. When creating a new logo for the Forensics Union, I wanted a symbol that was instantly recognizable. Incorporating the speech bubble was a unique way to present the team without making it seem too simplified. I also injected the Illinois State Redbird ‘swag’ throughout the brand.
