Claw and spur logo.
 
I know there is at least one person on the board who has a digital image of the official claw and spur logo, but I don't want to call that person out if they don't want to participate in this. Anyway, there is actually an official version of the logo I mentioned the university has, but I don't think it gets used for anything really official like on uniforms. It's really just the lower foot of the gamecock we see in the block "C", but this logo is all garnet.

Here's a picture of the logo I'm talking about used as a car magnet:

I'm wondering if someone would be willing to find a larger version of the image, dress it up a bit, and then do a mock up of what it would look like on the football helmets (white preferably since that's what the team wears, but black or garnet would be fine). I think it might be kind of neat if someone could alter it a little to make it like the spur(s) form an "S" and the claw forms a "C." I guess it seems like the claw part kind of does it naturally, so mostly the alterations would be to the spur.


If anyone's willing and wants to submit it, then please go right ahead, because I know there are some talented artists on the board. Personally, I think the official version is pretty weak, so if you want to do your own version, then please do.

Is this the one? It has been one of my faves since I saw Sidney Rice put his hat for NSD.

That's the basic idea, but that particular version is from Zephyr, I believe, so we should probably stay away from using it.

I just think it might be neat to consider using the current logo of the block "C" and gamecock as the official logo but have the gamecock's "weapons" on the athletic uniforms. This would be very similar to the way FSU uses the Indian head (ESPN graphics and at the 50 on the football field) but has the spear on the helmets. This way we could continue using the logo we all know and love, but have something a little more appropriate for the team going into "battle." Yea, I know this idea will be met with extreme discord.

That's why I'd like to see how a somewhat badass version of the talons and spur would look on the helmets, especially if it could be morphed into a pseudo SC. Just a thought, though.

Maybe we could go more toward a styling of this:

As far as I know, there is no such official logo...at least not anymore. Perhaps in days past?

This link shows all of the officially recognized trademarks, logos, and typesets that we are allowed to use at the university.

Took a stab at it. I like the logo so I tried to recreate it and put it on some templates I have. I could also put it on our current helmet template, but I thought the matte black came out better. The other is some carbon fiber thing that the kids are digging these days.

It is a great idea. Wonder if it would be too "busy" to have the Block C behind the claw/spur?

I found a bad ass Claw and Spur logo online, and modified it to this and
used it to make my current signature.

this is a badass claw and spur but it would need one toe and talon removed to be truly useful for USC.

For some reason, the University dropped off the spur logo around 2 years ago from their official style guide.

My guess is that spur logo is still officially trademarked and exists in some capacity. However, it was never a strong logo at all and was rarely, if ever, used.

I have it if anyone wants it.

Sarcasm is hard to convey across the internet through text. He probably thought you were attacking him by saying he had nothing better to do than play with Photoshop.

Plus he is a Clemson grad, so he probably stays on guard here a bit. I doubt he meant anything by it.
