Spirited: Cheers to RIT School Spirit

RIT Graphic Marks

Most students at RIT would never think that their school logo would have any history, especially given that the official logo has been nothing more than the school’s initials for so long. The RIT logo and other graphic marks have an incredibly branching history with numerous one-off designs and other changes, some drastic and some subtle. Even the current school seal harks back to when the school was known as the Rochester Anethaeum and Mechanics Institute. In the past, the graphic marks representing this school were constantly changing, and these changes date all the way back to the downtown campus that RIT started on. RIT and its logo changed with the times, as well as changed randomly. This collection showcases some of the more interesting and influential designs throughout the history of the school.
