Cameron Seal and Logo

History of the Cameron University Seal

CU SealCameron University's seal was commissioned in November 1981 through a contest to find a new logo for the university.

The Office of Information Services conducted the contest. Entries were judged by members of the publications committee and faculty members in the CU Art Department. The winning design was submitted by Richard Brawley.

The seal is used on all official university documents, including letterhead and envelopes.

The CU Logo

CU LogoCameron’s logo features the letter “C” with a pickaxe running through its center. The logo was created in 2004 as part of a project that reintroduced mascot “Ole Kim” to the campus community. The pickaxe was a nod to Ole Kim’s return to the Cameron campus that year in the form of a prospector. For the first part of its existence, the logo was tied primarily to sports and spirit-building events. However, its colorful and distinctive design proved popular with students and organizations producing Cameron memorabilia. As a result, the university made the design its primary logo. 

The “Pickaxe C” logo can be found on university publications, recruitment materials, advertising, official merchandise and promotional items.
