Meaning and History

Ferris State Bulldogs Logo History

The Ferris State Bulldogs department logo matches its name. Since 1993, the logo shows the head of an aggressively barking bulldog. There is a studded collar with a round pendant on which the letter “F” is written on the dog’s neck. At first, it was black, but then (in 2011) the designers made it red in the color of a collar. This is one of the major changes that have taken place since the emblem has been improved.

Other innovations touched on minor details, such as the color of the spikes and the shade of the bulldog’s head. The general artistic concept has not changed: the drawing is still cartoonish, the dog has large fangs and a menacing look.
