Masters' Team Design:
Distinguish Alaskan Swimmers

Alaska to Perth team design

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."
