ORIGINAL (not copied) High School logos

Recommended Posts

Ah RS did a logo for you. Looks awesome as always.

 

That's interesting that they used the caveman back in the day :)

Here's an original for my high school - Milton-Union H.S. in West Milton, OH - the Bulldogs.  I know it's original because I commissioned it!

My high school had an original logo, but they are now transitioning to the old Seattle Mariners upside-down trident. School colors are staying the same though, so on the baseball hats, it's yellow on green.

 

Funny story, when changing, someone mistook the Arizona State pitchfork for the Mariners trident, so until it was pointed out to them, the football helmets featured the ASU pitchfork in place of the trident.

I can't stop trying to read letters in the face.   W and L are unintentional, I'm sure, but now it's all I can see.

My alma mater started using a ripoff of the Philadelphia Eagles logo my senior year ('98). I always hated it, and finally did something about it a couple years ago.

Bloomfield Hills High School has a really nice black hawk that (supposedly) was designed by a parent of a student:

one thing that has always bugged me (and many of these logos are guilty of it) is when a team uses a picture of it's mascot/nickname with letters/text that represent the mascot/nickname rather than the school/town name.. an example would be the "wolves" logo that has a wolf head and text that says "WOLVES".. we can already tell by the picture that you're the wolves, so the text should be the town/school name.. i also don't like it when teams use initals of the mascot as a logo or major part of a logo.. the initial letters and/or text should always be for the place (since that's usually tough to depict with a mascot/logo), and the nickname/mascot should be depicted in the mascot/logo.. sometimes you can pull both off with the same image (i.e. KC Chiefs - arrowhead symbolizes "chiefs" while KC are the initals of the city), but i just dont understand why some of the teams fail to see that.. to me, that's one of the dead giveaways for stock-art logos or clip-art logos.. look in any athletic gear catalog, and you'll see several logos that reiterate themselves with text of the mascot pictured in the logo.

Like the former logo of the school i graduated from, Reeds Spring High School in missouri.Wolves-Reeds-Spring.gif

A high school near Sacramento called Woodcreek uses this as the Timberwolves.

Stillwater, Minnesota's Stillwater Area High School, where I go, uses the Ponies. The logo was created by a student in 1971, and has been used since.

It was recently updated a few years ago...

It's weird walking around seeing the 2 versions used simultaneously. I feel like none of the other students even knew there was a change.

There’s definitely a snake in that old version.

I had the pleasure of working with the great people of Tabor Academy which is located in Marion, Massachusetts to bring their vision to life.  The NEW logos were just unveiled yesterday and will primarily be used by the school athletics departments replacing the previously used clipart logo seen below along with new marks.

Nice update, the S no longer looks like a snake.  Overall a nice logo, pretty creative.

I designed this for my high school team back in 1984. Coach/teacher was cool enough to see my sketch and make it the new logo (instead of busting me for drawing in class). Was pretty cool even though the printer didn't reproduce it exactly right.
