Nebraska-Omaha Mavericks Logo History

Modern versions of university emblems date back to 1997 when an unbranded bull was chosen as the main element. This image was used for two periods until it received a new design – abstract.

1997 – 2003

The logo of that time depicts the head of a bull with powerful horns. The look of the animal is stern, frowning, as evidenced by frowning eyebrows and swollen nostrils as if a bull is preparing to attack an opponent or wants to frighten him with a formidable look. There are two inscriptions: in the first row – the name “University of Nebraska Omaha” in small print, in the second – the nickname “Mavericks” in large letters with a bend at the bottom. The main colors of the logo are red-crimson, black, light blue, and white. There is also a gray border.

2004 – 2010

In 2004, the management decided to simplify the palette, so they dropped most of the colors, leaving only dark crimson, black and white. They form a contrasting background and create an aura of tension. This is a psychological trick to intimidate an opponent. The drawing style has also been changed: the number of strokes and small details have been reduced. The words have a dark border.

2011 – today

Now an abstract version is used, in which only the corporate palette remained from the previous logos. The design is made in the shape of the letter “O.” The inscriptions have disappeared.
