the story behind our logo
In October 2018, UD’s department of communication held a campus-wide contest asking students to submit ideas for a new logo for Flyer Media. Dozens of entries were whittled down to 5 options and students voted on their favorite.
Matt Schubert, a junior communication major at the time, created the winning design. Schubert’s logo features wings as an homage to Dayton’s aviation heritage, and in synergy with the Dayton Flyers athletics logo.
Schubert also submitted the winning choice for a new slogan for Flyer Media- “All Media, One Community”.
“I’m really happy I was able to contribute to Flyer Media’s image,” said Schubert. “I think the logo and slogan represent UD because it touches on Dayton’s roots in community. We are all Flyers and we all care about our community, which is the message I think Flyer Media is trying to convey.”
more ABOUT OUR DIRECTOR
Pat Enright, the inaugural Director of Flyer Media, is a University of Dayton alumnus with more than 20 years of experience in the media world. Enright ’94 was most recently assistant news director at Dayton’s ABC & Fox affiliates. Before that, he spent 17 years with WHIO-TV, Dayton’s CBS affiliate. He started as a part-time associate producer and worked his way up to executive producer, a role he held for more than 11 years.
Enright was executive producer at WHIO-TV in 2011 when Cox Media Group combined the operations of its Dayton-area newspaper, TV, radio and digital divisions into a single organization. The result is a shared newsroom that provides content for all of Cox’s local media properties, including News Center 7, the Dayton Daily News and WHIO Radio.
“I worked and managed in one of the first cross-platform collaborative newsrooms in the country,” Enright said. “At Cox Media Group, we found ways to coordinate our TV and digital properties with newspaper and radio. My experience there taught me invaluable lessons about all types of media.”
Over the years, Enright has mentored many University of Dayton graduates and helped launch their careers as reporters, videographers and producers.
