This page provides information and guidelines to the Wake Forest community regarding the use of Wake Forest’s athletic logos which may be used for athletic-related communications and marketing materials, team uniforms and consumer apparel. The intention is to protect the integrity of the institution’s athletic logos and to ensure such logos are used in an appropriate manner.

The bold block WF, the bold block WF with Deacon head, the Demon Deacon, and the Wake Forest logotype are official athletic logos. All athletic logos must always maintain approved colors, proportions and design integrity. No alterations may be made, nor shall design elements be placed inside any of the athletic logos.

If modifications are required due to manufacturing limitations, they must be submitted and approved by Wake Forest Department of Athletics Strategic Communications prior to production.


Logos are available for download in three different file formats. To download, select the desired logo from the black bar above.

  • EPS File – For print use (vector art)
  • Hi Res JPG File – For desktop print use (300 dpi)
  • Lo Res JPG File – For web use (72 dpi)
