Norfolk State University Logo Redesign (Concept)
Norfolk State University (NSU) is a public four-year, coed, liberal arts, historically black university located in Norfolk, Virginia. Norfolk State sports teams participate in NCAA Division I (Football Championship Subdivision for all sports including football) in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC).
I took on the task of designing a visual identity for the athletic department of one of my favorite universities in my home state, Virginia. The challenge was to create a distinct identity that stands firmly on its own, in a league that includes three other universities that have a spartan as a mascot. It was also important that the identity maintain a cohesion that could scale with the all 15 of NSU intercollegiate sports teams.
