LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) – UNLV on Saturday released a special commemorative logo to kick off the school’s 2017 celebration of “50 Years of Rebel Football.”
Designed as a courtesy by Mike Mason of CatalystCreativ located in Philadelphia, the primary image is Rebel Red while there are also secondary versions in white and in black.
The logo debuted on posters and schedule magnets at the team’s annual Showcase event, which wrapped up the third spring practice under head coach Tony Sanchez.
The design features the UNLV arch placed over a large numeric “50” flanked by the program’s initial season of 1968 on the left and 2017 on the right. Behind it all is a mix of iconic Las Vegas architecture – both old and new – including Vegas Vic, the former Landmark Hotel, various current Las Vegas Strip properties along with the High Roller and of course the “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign that also appears in the Rebels’ end zones at Sam Boyd Stadium. The Stardust diamonds, which are featured on the squad’s game pants, are also visible in the logo’s skyline.
The logo will be prominently featured in the team’s marketing and media campaigns as well as in patch form on game jerseys this season as the Rebels celebrate their 50 year of competition.
