The Nike Swoosh is a logo legend. And while the Swoosh has stood as one of the world's most recognizable logos for nearly 50 years, Nike's mark on sportswear iconography offers one of the richest of any brand. Think Jumpman, Swingman, and hundreds upon hundreds more.
Nike's logo library extends far wider than the Swoosh. The brand has created a bounty of logos for its products, some obscure (the 1990s were the heyday of logo creation and hundreds were made just in that decade alone) and some iconic. It has built logos for shoes, events, athletes, and partner institutions (think: University of Oregon). The Department of Nike Archives has chronicled much of this history. Below are some of the most memorable logos from Nike's catalog.
