A couple new U of M pieces

These are a couple pieces I did over the Thanksgiving holiday. The top one is for those recruits whose teams won their state title. The bottom piece is for all those who helped with the official visit weekend the U of M had a couple weeks ago. I'm currently working on the Potential Student Athlete Questionnaire as well as some other pieces. Working with the Tigers certainly keeps me busy, but I can't complain when it's for football.

U of M Postseason Good Luck Pieces

Here are a couple good luck pieces to send out to recruits whose teams are fighting their way through the postseason. I had a lot of fun with both. The bottom piece is one of a series of three with a different going out after each playoff victory. I particularly like that one because the picture at center is one I took when I had the opportunity to watch the U of M take on MTSU from the sidelines. I was able to take my family to watch the Tigers play UAB this past Saturday as well. Although they didn't win, we had an awesome watching the game.

Several New U of M Pieces

 Tulane Game Review
 20 Reasons #10-Internship Opportunities
It was a real challenge to create this piece as they wanted me to incorporate all the logos of the companies into the piece somehow. I was brainstorming for this one when I came up with the idea of making the logos shape the "M" in the Tigers logo. I thought it was an interesting solution with a fairly solid turnout
 Coach Congratulations
 Team Congratulations for Undefeated Season
(I know I'm partial to Lombardi quotes, but I'm a Packers fan. What do you expect?)
Tough Season
This piece was one of my favorites from this week. I really spent some extra time looking up inspiration before I got to work this past weekend and I think it helped a lot in adding some new flavor to the pieces like the one above. I went away from the grungy fonts and went for a crisper look on this one and I believe it turned out very well. I had three different versions of the background, this being the one they liked. All in all it is one of my favorite pieces of the season so far, which I am happy to say. As a designer, I always want to keep replacing what I think is my best piece with something newer. It helps you to know you are growing as an artist.
