Harper College T-Shirt Design
T-Shirt design created for Hawks women's volleyball team
By winning their regional tournament, 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, I focused on a saying they used while playing – Pump It Up, Say What Say What. The lettering for Pump It Up was custom drawn, emphasizing the connection teammates share. All typography was then given a multi-step 3D effect to make it pop. To pull it all together, I added a volleyball and the Harper College Hawks logo at a lower depth level. These shirts were very special to them, and needless to say a very hot item at the shirt exchange!
