Pratt really needs to get its visual act together. The podium is hideous!...and that pratt sign looks like it was printed at home and mounted on black foam board. Pratt is a design school! Have a custom podium designed and made...and revamp the pratt logo and font. How about raised lettering with gold foil?! Class it up man. I'm a pratt alum and this is just embarrassing.
