The Howard Bison logo created by the designers deserves the status of the “most horned” sports emblem. After all, its central image is a bull – creepy, sinister, and mystical. This animal symbolizes the strength and power of Howard University students. The second pair of horns belong to the inscription above. Sharp protrusions enhance the sense of danger.

Meaning and History

Howard Bison Logo History

The previous emblem was used from 2002 to 2014. It depicts the silhouette of a running bison. From the white horn, a red stripe with the inscription “Bison” stretches from right to left. It is gradually expanding, giving the picture dynamics. The style is close to minimalistic: in the drawing, there are no unnecessary details that distract attention from the central image.

After a global logo redesign in 2015, Howard University introduced a new sports logo. Now, the lower part is occupied by the head of the bison and the upper – the teams’ names. The word “Howard” is written in small red letters. “Bison,” on the contrary, immediately catches the eye thanks to the original font with serif horns and diagonal strokes in the middle of “B,” “S” and “N.”
