Coastal Carolina Chanticleers: Brand overview

Conway, South Carolina, U.S.

The Coastal Carolina Chanticleers sports division, also known as the Vikes, is funded by Coastal Carolina University. It represents nineteen teams – as many sports as provided in NCAA Division I. Almost all are members of the Sun Belt Conference, except for women’s teams in lacrosse and beach volleyball, which are part of the Atlantic Sun Conference.

Until the 1960s, Chanticleers were called Trojans. When they merged with the University of South Carolina, it was decided to change the nickname to one more suitable for the university’s mascot (Gamecock). The option Chanticleers was chosen for its symbolism: it was the name of a witty and resourceful rooster from the poem “The Nun’s Priest’s Tale” by English poet Geoffrey Chaucer.

Meaning and History

Coastal Carolina Chanticleers Logo History

The image of a rooster is the connecting link of all the logos of this sports department. From 1995-2001, it was not depicted in full detail. It consisted of several colored elements separated by white outlines. It had a blue-green head, a black comb, and a bronze-colored beak combined with three feathers in the tail. At the same time, the initial letter of the word “Chants” (shortened version of Coastal Carolina Chanticleers) merged with the rooster’s head, and from the connection of the letters “nt,” a long bird’s foot stretched downward.

Then, the designers changed the concept and depicted a fighting rooster, confidently marching according to the position of its wings. The feathers are not detailed, but it’s evident they are present: this is indicated by sharp angles and black lines. The bird looks quite menacing. Its eyes glow white, and the comb is tilted forward. Another important detail is the teeth. Artists had to add them to give the mascot the most menacing look. From 2002 to 2015, the drawing was complemented by the inscription “Coastal Carolina Chanticleers,” which was divided into three lines and executed in italic font with serifs. In 2016, it was removed, leaving only the graphic part of the logo.
