Emerson Athletics first-ever logo, which will be placed on the floor of the Brown and Plofker Gym over winter break.
The Athletics Department has announced the launching of its first-ever athletic logo after a vote of more than 1,600 students, faculty, staff, and alumni.
The winning Emerson Lions logo was designed by Phoenix Design and Development Company.
Athletics Director Patricia Nicol said the new logo represents “the start of integrating athletics even more into student life.”
“The new logo represents a clear identity and heightened visibility for Emerson Athletics,” she said.
Emerson often used the Lions image in its sports apparel, but the College has never had an official logo.
The new logo is one part of Athletics’ rebranding effort. The department recently partnered with Nike to lend a consistent look to further enhance the identity of Emerson Athletics and its 14 sports teams.
The new Lions logo will be placed on the floor of the Bobbi Brown and Steven Plofker Gym in Piano Row during the upcoming winter break, while the uniforms and merchandise will be rolled out over the next two years.
