A very realistic depiction of a tiger was the first primary logo of the institution. It was a side view of its head. It was done in a very bold orange color with white used for highlights, which combined with an open mouth and visible fangs, gave a very impressive and strong-willed feel.

1935 – 1950

An updated version of the emblem now featured the whole animal instead of just the head. It was standing on a football with the “Clemson” written across it. The wild cat was done in the same color palette and a similar drawing style. It did not look as striking anymore, but the logo was quite appropriate for the representation of an athletic team of the university.

1951 – 1964

The university kept the orange color and tiger theme. However, this time a bright orange letter “C”, which stood for the name of the institution, was the center of the logo. It had a purple border and corners that were cut at an angle. An interesting element was added in the form of a small tiger figure sitting inside the letter. It was orange with blue lines and an outline. Its long tail was hanging down from the letter. The animal had a relaxed position and a friendly grin.

1965 – 1969

The next logo had a very similar feel and style to the original one. The animal was facing forward and had a very scary and determined look. There was more white with orange being used for drawing the details. Under the head, it stated the name of the university in uppercase letters using a classic font. The writing was also done in the same color as the animal.

1970 – 1976

The tiger was redrawn again. Although it still had its mouth open and visible fangs, it did not look as terrifying. In fact, it might even seem like the tiger is laughing. Moreover, new colors were added. These included black and purple. The letters were also done in black instead of purple.

2015 – Today

A more modern and simple logo was introduced by the institution in 2015. It was a purple tiger’s footprint. The edges were rough, while bright and bold orange color contrasted well against a white background. The paw was drawn at an angle. This was very unique and at the same time was a good representation of a well-known university.
