U of M Women's Basketball: Stationery Designs

As part of my work with the women's basketball team, I have been working on some new stationery designs for the hand written items that the team sends out to its recruits. Below are a few different items I have done so far:

U of M Women's Basketball: Meet the Players

I have been working with the University of Memphis' women's basketball program along with their football program for the past few months now and wanted to start uploading some pieces I have done for them. Above is a series of pieces introducing the Seniors, Juniors, and Sophomores to their recruits. I left a blank spot in the middle of each piece for them to insert a typed letter to the recruits. This has been one of my favorite pieces I have done for the basketball team up to this point so far. I've really enjoyed using smoke as a texture on the pieces I have done for them. To me it adds a cool mystique to the piece.

Personal Piece: Wedding Invitation and Program

It's been a little over two weeks now since my wife and I got married, and I wanted to take one of the posts on my blog to show our wedding invitation and program. I designed both based off our wedding site in Gatlingburg, TN, wanting to highlight our mountain setting (which was absolutely beautiful on our wedding day). The picture on the front of the program is the walk up to our wedding site. It was a wonderful wedding and I enjoyed designing both the invitation and program for it as well. Plus, the Dr. Seuss quote on the back of our programs summed our relationship up perfectly!

A Couple Items for the CF Foundation

I recently started doing some design work for the the TN Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and figured I would put up a couple pieces I've done for them over the past month.

The top item is a new logo I created for the East TN chapter for their annual Martinis and Movies Gala. The foundation is switching to a new branding system at the start of the year so I only had the three colors you see in the logo to work with. I think it turned out very well, as the film strip worked very nicely as a frame for the martini glass.

The bottom item is a poster I did for the TN Chapter showcasing their 3 Blind Wines event in November. They were working with earlier version of the poster where the wine glasses dominated. However, I went the route of letting the title of the event stand out. I took the wine glasses from their original poster, tweaked them slightly and let play a secondary part at the top of the poster. For some reason as I was designing this poster I kept seeing a sunbeam in the background in my mind, so I included it in the poster as well.

Kicker U

So it has been a while since I have updated this here ol' blog. I guess it's time I fix that.

Up first is a piece I did for the Univ. of Memphis a few weeks back promoting their success in the kicking game in hopes of recruiting some more special teams players to the Tigers. I wanted to post it because it is rare that anyone ever highlights their kickers, so why not throw it up on my blog as well?
