2001 – Today
A bold drawing of a bull’s head facing straight forward is the centerpiece of the team’s emblem. The animal has a focused gaze and looks very confident and powerful. It is done in a predominantly deep purple color, while black is used for all the outlines. A bright yellow is added on top of the horns, around the eyes, and a couple of other places for a more energetic feel. Over its head, it states “Minnesota State University” followed by “Mavericks”. All the letters are capitalized. While the top line is done using a black classic typeface, the second line catches the eye right away. It is also done in the same colors as the bull itself. The yellow serves as the background for the purple letters, while black creates an outline around it. The end of the letter “M”, which is partially hidden behind one of the horns, and the letter “S” have pointy ends that repeat the bull’s horns.
