How do you find such a thing?
As I was talking and catching up with my college roommate, we started to talk about how each other are going back to school currently. We have taken different paths from the start but have always had a love for sports and design that kept us talking till all hours of the night many times. Our paths have seem to crossed as he is a very successful graphic designer now going back to school to learn more about running a business, and now I am back in school for the creative marketing path.
Somehow the topic always comes back around to sports and what is going on with the designs. I asked him what he was working on and he could not say, but did say to look out for it on UNI-Watch in a few weeks. This is how I found a blog about sports design. Skye (college roommate) pointed out that this is usually the first place to see and tell an opinion about new designs. He also went on to say a number of his projects have shown up there in both good and bad reviews.
First look / read of the blog
After reading the first post I found myself wanting to read more. The guy that writes the blog is very smart and knowledgeable. What kept me read was why that he writes his post. They are smart and witty but at the same time honest and true.
Will I keep reading?
Personally I will keep reading this blog. Mostly because I have a connection with someone that has been featured here. Another reason that I will is because it was a great way to see how design elements are used. It was a great reminder that a lot of thought goes into every design and it may turn out good, or it could miss the mark, but in the end the core ideas can be used in more than just sports design.
Check out Skye’s work here, he does more than just sports, but that is his passion! He is making a name for himself with his custom fonts and numbers.
His top projects that he worked on are these very well know logo.
