Open Letter to President Yudof on UC Logo Fiasco
it involves tweet exchanges (some of them now deleted) like these from a UCOP creative director and the lack of outreach UCOP engaged in w/ regard to the UC logo:
@vanessa_correa based on your replies and tweets, I would like to give you the same advice

@BMadMon @vanessa_correa Why is a UC employee so rude and condescending to people? This is wrong.
15 Dec Michelle S. Michelle S. @metshell
@stopthelogo @BMadMon @vanessa_correa Her earlier tweets (now deleted) were like this too. So unprofessional.

@metshell @stopthelogo @bmadmon I think tweeting about a logo whe a national tragedy happening is something you shld think about.

you're right @vanessa_correa, what you do is unimportant and does not deserve to be discussed, will you be returning your 6 figure salary?

@vanessa_correa wow that was uber- classy... invoking the massacre of kindergartners as a shield against criticism.

(Heba Abedin in the mix of those tweets too- she is the sister of Huma, the wife of former congressman Anthony Weiner,recall his experiences w/ social media...)
The hard feelings might have to do with the industry's acknowledgment of how bad it all was with the new UC logo rollout , just the latest
but it also ties in to this Inside Higher Ed post: Administration and Critique
Sometimes it is best to place certain administrative work- like creative etc.- under contract, not career permanent positions. B/c the approach might need to part ways suddenly, aesthetics involved, and the temperament of designers etc.
