Some people were put on this planet for a specific purpose. Beethoven was created to play piano. Einstien was created to think. Michael Jordan was made to play basketball. I have always felt as if I was made to be a designer...
My love for sports design started when I was 5 years of age. Receiving the love of sports from my father and the urge to draw from my mother, I found bliss combining the two formed my favorite hobby.
I completed my first design job at the age of 15 for a local club. My fictional series: "Rebranding the NHL" has become quite popular with hockey fans all over the globe, bringing about a small portion of internet fame. During the summer of '09, I was hired to resign my first professional team: The Quad City Mallards of the International Hockey League. Now at the age of 20, I am a full time graphic design student and have been blessed enough to have my designs appear all over the internet. I have even found one of my logos on the mask of an NHL goalkeeper, which was quite exciting...
One of my most valuable assets is the idea of being a "Designer Athlete". Because of my past and current background in athletics (NAIA soccer player as well as a multi-sport athlete in high school), I know what athletes like; what makes them feel good and proud to wear a design.
While I specialize in sports branding, I do not limmatthiason.deviantart.com/#it
myself to merely sports. I have slowly expanded into the world of corporate branding, a new adventure for me. While there are a few differences between the two, I try to take the same mental approach into corporate branding as I take into sports design: what is my client trying to communicate with his identity and what is the best way to bring that idea to the forefront?
