Meaning and history

Texas Tech Red Raiders Logo history

The teams have two mascots, Masked Rider and Raider Red, but none of them can be seen on the Texas Tech Red Raiders logo. Instead, it features a large letter “T” with a smaller “T” in front of it. The two letters represent the initials of the university’s name.

Both the glyphs are scarlet and black with black and white trim. The black shades add some dimension. In this form, the logo has been used since 2000.

Unlike the current 3D emblem, the previous version was almost completely flat. There were no shades or gradient, which could have added some dimension. Both the letters were scarlet with simple thin black trim. We can add, though, that because the smaller letter was placed on the forefront, while the larger one was in the background, you could feel that at least there was a little depth.
