When asked to design a tshirt for the Sac State gymnastics team, I showed the assistant coach several concepts. Because we are the Hornets, ever since I was a freshman I heard the phrase and cheer "buzz'em, beat'em, swarm'em, sting'em". I decided to do a hand lettered approach, and picked a style that had spurs to represent stingers. The tshirt had to be one color but it definitely has potential to be very colorful. I have to thank Erik Marinovich for the inspiration.
I was on the Hornet gymnastics team for four years and was the social media coordinator for the next two. Do you know how many times I was given the opportunity to design the team shirt? ZERO - until now... The new assistant coach let me take a stab at the team shirt for this year and I came up with a new tagline and the design was inspired by Jon Contino's shirt he did for Nike. So excited to see these shirts printed in a few weeks!
