Rebels Wordmark Logo
The University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV) Rebels have been a part of the NCAA since 1968, and their iconic wordmark logo has been an integral part of their identity ever since. The UNLV Rebels wordmark logo was first introduced in 1972 as a strong, bold statement that represented the school’s new commitment to athletics. Since then, it has become synonymous with excellence in college sports and is one of the most recognizable logos in all collegiate sports.
Over its history, there have been several iterations and variations on the design for this classic logo—each designed to capture both tradition and innovation while representing UNLV’s athletic spirit. In 1996, for instance, designer Michael Bierut gave it a modern facelift by introducing elements such as curved lettering that emphasized movement; he also added white outlines around each letter to make them stand out against any background color or texture used when displaying them together on apparel or other merchandise items like banners or flags.
In more recent years (starting from 2017), multiple versions were created including gold-outlined letters which allowed for greater flexibility when printing onto different colored backgrounds without losing legibility; they also featured two stars on either side which further symbolized victory over adversity – something very appropriate given how much success UNLV had achieved during its time competing within NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision play!
No matter what version you see today though – whether old school black & white outline style from ‘72 or the newer gold-outlined look we know now - one thing remains true: The UNVL Rebel Wordmark Logo will always represent strength through unity!
