One of my favorite projects so far as a budding graphic designer, is designing for Next Play Sports Performance, LLC. I spent some time training with them in high school and still do, here and there. I was honored when the owner, Russ Frantz, asked me to create a logo for them.
This was my first experience with logo design, and I actually created the logo Freshman year at Marywood University. The logo is simple but has an athletic appeal to it, to fully emphasize his business and goal of his business. It was amazing to see what kind of opportunities came from designing a logo.
Here is the logo I designed:
Luckily for me, with just a few ideas and brainstorming, he loved one of the first few logos I designed. Designing his logo provided me with many opportunities to continue working with Next Play, from designing shirts, shorts, business cards, pamphlets, etc.
Here are some examples:
But recently my favorite project was creating their website! I have attached some images of the website that will be up and running this week! It was so fun to have full range to do whatever I wanted when designing for them. I was lucky to be able to even take the pictures myself, for the website.
All together I am very pleased with how this opportunity grew into something amazing.
