client: Alaska Masters Swimmers
project: event design
A group of my fellow masters swim team buddies traveling to Perth, Australia for the the World Masters Swimming Championshp asked me for a design that would combine elements of Alaska with Perth's icon, the black swan. These team T-shirts featured a small pocket design on the front and a much larger design on the back. If you can't make the journey yourself, being represented by your work is the next best thing!
"I approached Kim Olmsted for a group of masters swimmers, and asked her to design a T-shirt for the World Masters Swimming Championships in Perth, Western Australia. Kim was a joy to work with. We gave her the basic idea and she came up with a very attractive graphic logo quickly. This logo incorporated a design that commemorated the Alaskans being in Perth for this international competition. We had a lot of extra T-shirts made and they were a 'spot on smash' at the meet. We traded T-shirts with other swimmers from other countries and our T-shirts were simply the best and in hot demand."
