More Work for the U of M

 Good Luck Mailout #2
 Good Luck #3
 Powerpoint Background 1
 Powerpoint Background 2
 Powerpoint Background 3
 Powerpoint Background 4
 Powerpoint 5
Intro Mailout for "20 Reasons to Choose Memphis". 

I will be doing one of these every week until Signing Day, detailing another reason why recruits should choose the U of M. The Powerpoint background's are for coaches to use when they give presentations in potential student athlete's homes later on in the recruiting process. I am also working on revamping the Football Department's business cards. More work to come! They are certainly keeping me busy!

Several New U of M Pieces

 Boys on the Bluff Info Sheet
 Coach Spotlight (Larry Porter)
 Congratulations to Recruits
Good Luck for Recruits

It has been getting pretty busy for me with stuff for the U of M. Here are a bunch of projects I worked on for them last week. They especially liked the Good Luck to be sent to recruits before their big games, as well as the Boys on the Bluff info sheet. It was nice to start putting that logo into action. There will be plenty more U of M stuff soon!

Boys on the Bluff Logo

Here is my latest project for the U of M. The task was to create a logo designed specifically for local recruits who decide to stay in Memphis and play for the Tigers. Coach Porter had coined the group as the "Boys on the Bluff" and so I brainstormed off of that. Of course, as I continued to sketch on the idea of "the bluff" the Hernando DeSoto bridge kept popping into my head. Therefore, it is featured in the center of the stylized football shape. By adding the tiger stripes to the bottom of the logo I was attempting to connect university to city like the idea of the group. It was a challenge to create, but I am glad that the guys at the university ended up liking it!

U of M Season Invite

Gotta love when the head coach gives your work the thumbs up...maybe it's because I included him in the invite. Or maybe he just thought it was overall awesome. Either way, here is a season invite I created for the U of M to send out to recruits. While I was doodling ideas for this one the phrase "Come feel the roar" popped into my head because of the the tiger mascot. So then I had a little fun with the font to echo the phrase. I once again had a lot of fun creating this one. I mean, it's designing for football. Does it get any better?

U of M Name Tag

It has been a couple weeks since I have posted any new work, but I recently just got a part time gig working for the University of Memphis Athletics Department. I'll be designing flyers, mailers, and other things mainly for recruiting purposes. Here is the outcome of my first project. I had to design a name tag to be used for when potential student athletes come for tours, games, etc. It was a fun little project and the guys at U of M loved the turn out. I'd have to say I am satisfied as well. I can't wait to post future projects from this season up here. I am currently working on a season invite to be sent out to potential recruits. Keep a look out!
