Baylor Bears Logo

Baylor Bears Logo

We can start the story from the famous Sailor Bear, probably the most known retro Baylor Bears logo. The creature was depicted in yellow with bluish nuances and a white hat. It was created by a former Disney employee Arthur Evans. Unfortunately, the school had to adopt a different logo as it eventually turned out that Evans had drawn pretty similar bears for several other universities.

The 1969 logo nicknamed Growling Bear looked very realistic. Like the previous emblem, this one featured only the creature’s head. The logo was created in collaboration by classics professor Elmer Fisher and law student Joey Taylor.


Baylor Bears Logo-1997

The Fuzzy Green Bear logo was introduced in 1997. Nicknamed Swamp Bear and Radioactive Bear, it was developed by SME Branding. The team also used a brown bear logo, which did not look as cartoonish as its predecessor. The current primary Baylor Bears logo consists of the letters “B” and “U.”
