A bold version of the Vanderbilt V is used to represent the Commodores. This variation aligns to the proportions of the V we use for the university, a visual representation of our One Vanderbilt spirit. The Athletics brand will be phased in over time, so check back for more updates as the year progresses.
Primary Commodores Lockups
The Star V is our spirit mark. You’ll see it in a supporting role, as a graphic element, tucked in the corner of ads like the Nike swoosh or displayed on fan merchandise. The outline shape of the star is composed of five distinct Vs. Additional spirt marks, including variations on Star V, the anchor, Mr. C, and others are available for select use. Please contact us for more information.
Our core palette will feel familiar. We make the addition of a pure black to this palette to ensure the boldest delivery of the Athletics marks and system. Flat gold is also the fallback to metallic gold, as shown in the university color palette.
Just like in the primary university lockups, these lockups will use the height of their respective icons around all sides to determine clear space for the mark.
Please use the guidelines below when scaling our lockups and icons down. This ensures legibility even at small sizes.
- Minimum width for our horizontal lockups with icon is 250 px, or 2 inches in print. The centered lockup must, at a minimum, be used at 150 px or 1 inch. The V or Star V icons have a minimum scale of 75 px or 0.5 inches.
