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.
The 2014 5K Fun Run instead scheduled till April 17th, but the guy running it (no pun intended) is excited to start working on promotional pieces already. I've already had several meetings, critiques, and variations of the 5K shirt and although I have to wait several months before I can get my hands on the shirt, I am very excited for it!
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!
