This is all you need to know about our club logo.
History of the Logo
This is the Minna no Anime club logo. Unfortunately as of right now, the original creator remains unknown. But this logo has been used from at least 1995 when the first T-shirt design came out, and has been used as a breast logo on all t-shirts except for the 2005-2006 T-Shirt.
Update: Oh, to be a living fossil. I (Ron Neal) designed the logo for Ed Jajko back in Pre-history. The Logo was actually created AFTER the infamous first totally non-anime tshirt. It was created in Aldus Freehand. The Japanese characters were created in Fontographer for easy replication and portability.
In 1999, Ben Leinweber created the MNA logo file that was used on all the T-Shirts from 1999 to 2002. Apparently he didn't copy the files to the officers after taking off to Japan the next year, and Nur Monson had to rebuild the file. At that time, the bottom text which reads "Cal Poly Anime Club" was flipped around (probably on accident) so that the bottom of the text was facing inwards. Before that it was previously facing outwords.
A proper format of the file again seems to have been lost and Ben remade the file in April of 2006. When he did so, he decided to keep the change that Nur made to the logo. He also updated the font of the logo to look more like proper writing. (This has yet to get approval by the current officers).
In 2010 fall quarter, Cal Poly changed their policy on the use of the name "Cal Poly". They required items that had the college's name on it and that were to be sold to be created at a licensed vendor. MnA, not being as rich as the other clubs, decided to simply remove the words "Cal Poly Anime Club" from their T-shirt logos and use the school year instead.
