A friend of mine, the head football coach at David Douglas High School, and I were chatting about uniforms one day. We were discussing some of the Oregon Ducks recent duds, and I asked if anyone had ever done a design for his school. He said no because his school is one of the poorest in the district and custom anything would be beyond reach. I saw it as a fun opportunity to do something to make him and his students feel like a big-time program.
I re-made their Scotsman logo, created a custom tartan pattern, and designed mock-ups of all the major sports uniforms. I sent him this presentation a month or so later, and he and his students were in love.
