Meaning and history

Montana State Bobcats Logo history

With each of its four modifications that have taken place since the 1960s, the Montana State Bobcats logo has been growing more professional and impressive. The oldest emblem on the list (1960) featured a bobcat with plenty of details. And yet, the design seemed too cluttered.

On the following version (1997), the bobcat’s head was highly stylized. In 2004, a couple of meaningful details were introduced. Eventually, in 2013, the Montana State Bobcats logo acquired its current shape, which is both simple and impactful.
