All this shows off inside a bigger circular frame, whcih had four triangular ornaments. The external part of the seal had an inscription ‘Universitas Bostoniensis Condita MDCCCXXXIX’, meaning ‘University of Boston Founded 1837’. The whole seal also had a circular outline (The last one).

The modern logotype of the brand depicts a red rectangle with a white outline. On it, the university design team has drawn a nameplate. It has a thin script with large serifs. The letters themselves have an uppercase style. The upper ‘Boston’ word has a dominant position in the logo, as it is way bigger the ‘University’ part placed below.

Font and color

Boston University Emblem

Both the seal and the logotype use the same color palette – red and white. For the seal, the designers used red for outlines, frames and inscriptions, while white was used to draw the inner part of the seal. The modern mark uses a rectangle entirely colored red. It has a white contour. For the name, they made a white coloring. The font, however, is different for two logotypes. The seal inscriptions use an uppercase script with bold letters which have small serifs. The modern nameplate has a thin and slim type with large high serifs.
