Meaning and history

Austin Peay Governors Logo history


The Austin Peay Governors logo adopted in 1992 sported stylized letters “A” and “P.” What made the emblem stand out was the unusual shape of the glyphs. Although they weren’t symmetrical, they were drawn in such a way that the curves mirrored each other. Moreover, they would have formed a single shape if not for the gap between the letters. Anyway, in spite of the fact it was just a typographical logo, it had implied motion.
The current Austin Peay Governors logo (introduced in 2014) features a gentleman in a retro outfit and with a stylish mustache of the sort you’ll never find today.
