Meaning and history

Indiana Hoosiers Logo history


On the old logo introduced in 1976, the letters are rather wide. Both of them are red. It was only in 1982 that the glyphs got a black outline. Due to its shape, the logo got some depth. Also, the letters weren’t as bold as on the previous emblem.
Eventually, in 2002, the Indiana Hoosiers logo went through one more modification. Gone were the black outline and the 3D effect – the emblem was now flat once again. It looked different from the 1976 version, though – thinner, more elongated.
