By winning their regional tournament this year, the Harper College women’s volleyball team qualified for the national tournament in Minnesota. There the Hawks would not only compete for, but WIN a national championship! While claiming the title was surely the highlight of the trip, a close second was the t-shirt exchange where the competing teams swapped shirts to commemorate the tournament.
I was happy to lend a hand to design the shirt for the team. The girls had their heart set on a tie-dye shirt, which means the design had to be bold and easy to see. Choosing to focus on typography was a logical choice. To personalize the design, we focused on a saying they use while playing – Pump It Up, Say What Say What. The lettering for Pump It Up was custom drawn, and all typography was giving a multi-step 3D effect. To pull it all together, we added a volleyball and the Harper College Hawks logo. These shirts were very special to them, and needless to say a very hot item at the shirt exchange!
