Meaning and history

Western Athletic Conference Logo history

1993 – 2004

Western Athletic Conference Logo-1993
The logo of the Western Athletic Conference, created in 1993, featured a turquoise, black and white badge with the stylized enlarged black “WAC” lettering in a custom bold typeface with a double white and turquoise outline. The abbreviation was underlined by a thin turquoise horizontally stretched rectangular with a white “Western Athletic Conference” lettering in the uppercase of a traditional neat sans-serif typeface.

2005 – 2013

Western Athletic Conference Logo-2005
The redesign of 2005 switched the color palette of the logo to gray and burgundy red and removed the solid underline of the badge with just a burgundy lettering on a white background. The upper part of the emblem was redrawn more progressively and sharply, with all three letters slightly slanted and glued to each other. The angles on the edges became more pointed and the outline — thicker.

2014 – Today

Western Athletic Conference Logo
The 2014 Western Athletic Conference logo showcases the abbreviation “WAC” in a creative italicized type. The “thorns” on the “W” and “A” make the type recognizable and help to create a memorable logo. You can also see the tagline “Learn Compete Inspire” below. The saturated maroon shade looks pretty attractive in combination with unpretentious gray.
