Red Storm Primary Logo
The St. John's Red Storm is an iconic college basketball team with a long and storied history in the world of sports. Their primary logo is one that has become synonymous with excellence, tradition, and pride for its fans across the nation. The Red Storm’s current logo was designed by New York-based graphic designer Sean Kane back in 1994 as part of a rebranding effort to modernize its look while still maintaining the traditional elements that had defined them since its inception in 1907.
The original St. John’s University athletic teams were known as “the Grey Bees” due to their grey uniforms which featured white stripes down each side similar to those found on bees' wings; however, this name only lasted until 1921 when it was changed to “Redmen” after they switched from grey uniforms to red ones instead - thus leading us into our current era of "Red Storm" athletics! In terms of logos, there have been several changes over time but perhaps none more significant than when Sean Kane introduced his design back in '94 which features a bold red shield outlined by two lightning bolts symbolizing strength & power along with three stars representing honor & courage - all coming together perfectly under one banner: "St Johns".
In addition to being used prominently on jerseys & merchandise throughout campus bookstores around America, this timeless classic can also be seen displayed proudly at Madison Square Garden during home games or even gracing banners hung up inside Carnesecca Arena where thousands come out every year hoping for another championship run! From its humble beginnings all those years ago right through today - no matter how much things change within collegiate sports circles - one thing remains constant: The Red Storm Primary Logo will always stand tall amongst other great designs from across the country as a testament, not just success but also spirit and tradition too!
