Meaning and history

Rutgers Scarlet Knights Logo history


Over the last 25 years, the university’s athletic brand identity has evolved from a pretty cluttered emblem to a more minimalistic and cleaner one.
The Rutgers Scarlet Knights logo introduced in 1995 featured a knight in armor. He was holding a sword forming the letter “t” in the word “Rutgers” positioned below.
In 2004, the university adopted a completely different emblem. Here, there is only the large letter “R.” It looks pretty clean yet absolutely generic, we should mention.
