Colorado State Rams: Brand overview

Fort Collins, Colorado, U.S.
Fifteen teams of the Colorado State Rams defend the honor of Colorado State University in intercollegiate competitions. They participate in the Mountain West Conference, which is associated with the National Collegiate Athletic Association Division I and provides financial support to the FBS. Until 1957, the sports department was called “Aggies” because the university was originally an agricultural college. The nickname “Rams” was given to the team in honor of the mascot, who was donated back in 1947. The university leaders chose the ram because this animal has long been considered the primary symbol of the state of Colorado.

Designers have updated the color palette several times: from a combination of yellow and yellow-green (1982-1992), they moved to a combination of white and blue (1993-2014) and then made the main background a rich green (in 2015). However, the shapes, proportions, and arrangement of elements remained the same.
