. . . but arguments go on over 'outrageous' £145K logo

  • Comment

Tempers flared again over the new RIBA logo, with councillors claiming they had not been adequately consulted during the rebranding exercise.

Clarence Daly demanded to know exactly what had been achieved by the £145,000 exercise and described the executive's handling of the affair as 'outrageous' and 'an affront'.

He added that councillors had to answer the members' concerns about the logo, while they themselves had yet to see the final result. Others expressed 'horror' at the cost and their disapproval over the design.

But Richard Hastilow denied that the sum was excessive, saying the logo was just one element of a more fundamental review of how the RIBA presents itself as an institution.

Attempting to conclude discussions, Paul Hyett said that the work was delivered within the budget set in the past and that the issue was 'done, finito.

We are where we are with that, ' he said.
