Nostalgia was in the air (partly due to February's 75th Anniversary Homecoming, partly due to the recent digitizing of Multnomah's old logos) and our historic state of mind drove us to ask, "What would our website look like if it was based on Multnomah's branding from 50 plus years ago?" With the combined effort of our team, we turned our dream into reality... for one day. Read the rest of this entry »
Thanks to Spring Thaw (the ultimate youth event, organized by our very own Dr. Rob Hildebrand and his team), The Afters, Lancaster, and Above the Golden State are coming to Multnomah's campus on April 13 and 14. The cost is only $5 a show so you can afford to attend both! Read the rest of this entry »
With the Homecoming celebration of MU’s 75th anniversary right around the corner, we’ve seen a definite increase in school spirit. As is the case with any group of rabidly loyal supporters and fans, things can be taken a bit too far.
Take, for instance, 1981 alum Eric Rice, who went to legendary lengths to prove that he is MU through and through. On his way to the office one morning, he managed to swallow a 75th anniversary lapel pin along with a dose of daily vitamins (and some water for good measure). The shape and size of the lapel pin made it difficult to swallow completely, so it took some doing. Since no one was around to witness the act, he needed some way to prove that his tale was true and went to the doctor to get some x-rays. Read the rest of this entry »
Who can argue with the sheer manliness of Cinco de Mustache? That's right. No one. The men of MU gave it their all today, singing their hearts out--mugs of milk in-hand--to the applauding masses that filed in to witness the spectacle. Even College Preview visitors participated in the festivities, armed with fake mustaches.
Faculty involvement is up, no doubt due to the prominence of their colleague Dr. Ray Lubeck, the events' reigning dignitary, who gave the most inspiring speech in recent Cinco history.

For the past few weeks, I have been hunting down, scanning, and rebuilding (using Illustrator) all of the logos from Multnomah's history. While I was at it, I did a little bit of research and recorded the approximate years during which each logo was used. I finished the project earlier this week, so what you see here is the fruit of my labor; the digital archiving of Multnomah's branding history.

There's a good chance you've started to see MU's 75th Anniversary logo show up here and there, especially if you follow us on Facebook or Twitter... but have you seen the new 75th Anniversary rugs? Now is your chance.
Whether this is your first, second, or third glimpse, this will give you an idea of what I've been up to for the past few weeks in my task of creating and implementing this celebratory logo. Read the rest of this entry »
When we hired Grossenbacher Bros. to help us with our gift to the newest batch of MU grads, we had no idea it would be done by a single person at a hand-operated leather press. In fact, when Michelle Peel and I visited Grossenbacher's facility we expected to see a room full of large machines and a fully automated process. We couldn't be further from the truth.
