It was encircled by the full name of the conference featuring glyphs of almost the same size. The dark blue uppercase inscription was executed in a modern narrowed sans-serif typeface, which is pretty close to such fonts as Metafora Black and Cadmium Compressed Bold, with come of the contours modified and softened.

After the redesign of 2011, the Old a dominion Athletic Conference logo became more complicated and strong, and at the same time, more logical for the organization, connected to sports. The centerpiece of the current version is the abbreviation “ODAC” in blue with red and white trim. The proportions of the letters have been distorted to give the impression that the lettering is slightly concave, which adds dimension. The highlights serve the same purpose.

As for the full lettering, it is set on a narrow gray framing, which created two arches, above and under the bold blue abbreviation. The lettering is set in an extra-bold blue capitals of a massive geometric sans-serif typeface with angular contours and straight bars.
