Campbell Fighting Camels Logo 1993

The original Campbell Fighting Camels logo was introduced in 1993, and featured a bold black letter “C” in a geometric sans-serif, with an angular contour, a very common choice for Collegiate logos. The letter was accompanied by an image of an orange camel, running behind it to the right. It was a bright and contrasting emblem, which looked good on the jerseys of the players, and made the club stand out in the list of its competitors.

2005 — 2007

The redesign of 2005 made the Campbell Fighting Camels logo more modern and cool. Now the “C” featured a founded shape, with the serifs, smoothly coming out of the ends of the line, and having its cuts square. The letter was set in orange and had a double white and black outline. The running camel was also redrawn, and now there was only the head of the animal, set over the “C”, and drawn in profile, facing right. The animal was depicted in a more detailed way, than in the previous version, with bared teeth and a wicked look expressing a desire to fight and win.

2008 — Today

In 2008 the logo of the athletic program gets redesigned again, the “C” is back to black, but not to the square shape. The letter is executed in a bold elegant serif typeface with a rounded shape and a delicate serif with rounded angles, placed on the upper part of the line. Drawn in black, it featured a bold orange outline, balanced by a solid orange camel, which is drawn behind the “C”, walking to the right, just like on the very first badge. The drawing of the animal features the same style as the one from the previous logo, but now the animal is depicted in its full size and has a white blanket on its hump. Two intertwined “CU” letters in orange are set on the white background of the blanket.
