Meaning and history

Nevada Wolf Pack logo history


The old Nevada Wolf Pack logo, which was used by the athletic program in 2000-2007, was based on a large “N” glyph. While many teams have emblems based on block capitals (including the “N”), this logo looked totally unique due to the elegant wolf design housed inside the left vertical line of the “N.” You could see the head of a wolf turning back and looking straight at you. Along the right vertical bar, the word “Nevada” could be seen. The “N” was navy with grey trim, while the word “Nevada” and the outline of the wolf were given in white. Below the image, the lettering “Wolf Pack” in a heavy serif type could be seen.
In 2008, the team updated its emblem. Now, there is the side view of the wolf’s head facing to the right. The word “Nevada” is arched above. Both the previous and the current wolf look pretty abstract. However, in the case of the current emblem, there is more dynamism and tension due to the shape of the elements forming the wolf’s neck.
While the shape of the Nevada Wolf Pack logo went through a complete overhaul, the palette remained the same, which helped to make the transition from one emblem to the other easier.
