Meaning and history

Sacred Heart Pioneers Logo history

1993

Sacred Heart Pioneers Logo-1993
The very first logo of the Sacred Heart Pioneers was composed of an arched and shadowed “Pioneers” lettering in the uppercase of a traditional typeface with sharp and elongated serifs on the ends of the letters’ lines. The inscription was set in a dark burgundy color with a thin black outline and a light gray shadow, placed on a white background. Under the right part of the logotype, there was a graphical emblem, repeating the traditional coat of arms in the same white, burgundy, and gray color palette with the black separation lines.

2002

Sacred Heart Pioneers Logo-2002
The redesign of 2002 placed the logotype and the crest in one line, on a gray and white horizontally stretched banner. The typeface of the wordmark was switched to bolder and more geometric one, with massive square serifs, and the additional “Sacred Heart University” lettering was added to the top line of the new logo. The color palette remained the same.

2004

In 2004 the crest became the main part of the program’s logo. Now it was enlarged and refined and had a Ted arched “Pioneers” banner placed over its middle part. The inscription was set in the uppercase of a geometric sans-serif typeface on a solid red ribbon with triangular cuts of its ends.

2013

Sacred Heart Pioneers Logo-2013
The redesign of 2013 introduced a completely different Pioneers’ badge with the portrait of a man drawn in profile facing to the right, placed on a white background, and enclosed into a thick red circular frame with the white “Sacred Heart University” inscription in the uppercase on it, and the massive italicized geometric “Pioneers” written along the bottom line of the logo.

2014 – Today

Sacred Heart Pioneers Logo

Although the Sacred Heart Pioneers logo went through three modifications from 1993 to 2013, it retained the word “Pioneer” as one of the most visible parts. The current logo, though, doesn’t feature this word. You can only see the lettering “SHU” (the initials of the university’s name).

In terms of the palette, the logo has been pretty consistent, too.  It has always featured the combination of bright red and grey as well as the white background.
