The University of Washington Huskey logo has served as inspiration for countless schools nation wide and their website discusses the creation of the current logo:
The Huskey Logo
In 1995, Washington’s logo depiction of its Husky mascot was redesigned. The new version of the Husky was drawn by Michael G. Reagan using an Alaskan Malamute named Turbo Carrera as the model for the new image. The new version of the Husky shows a three-quarter profile of the mascot in a pose that is more majestic and regal than the previous version.
