Meaning and history

Northern Illinois Huskies Logo history


The design team that developed the Northern Illinois Huskies logo made a pretty obvious choice – they opted for the husky as the central element of the design. You can see the side view of the dog’s head facing to the right. The pictorial part of the logo is dominated by black, white, and grey, while the lettering “NIU” is given in red. Below, you can see the word “Huskies” in white over the black background.
