Designing A College Sports Poster

Hey there, thanks for checking out the first official blog post and you’re in luck because it’s not just an update but you will also get to see some of the steps we go through when working on certain projects. As you may or may not know one of the posters we designed this year for the University of Wyoming’s Athletics Football Program was recognized by Bleacher Report (bleacherreport.com) featured columnist Tom Perry as one of College Football’s Top 50 Team Schedule Posters.

They were rated on a scale of 1-10 then broken down with an overall category score, individual ballot score and then finally best overall score, which was maxed out at 120. I’m proud to say that Wyoming’s Football Poster had an overall score of 101, good enough for 8th so I’d like to take a few moments to thank Tom Perry and the Bleacher Report for taking...

2010-11 UW Volleyball and Soccer

In keeping with the look for this years posters and other marketing materials, the main image involved a lot of layering and effects to get that image popping effect to the team photos when laid over a dark background for that dramatic...
