I've been a pretty big band geek all my life. Now, I'm old, and the opportunities for band geekery are more limited. But my college friend Casey is now the Director of Athletic Bands at one of my alma maters, the University of New Hampshire, and as alumni ourselves, we recently conspired to create some new T-shirts for the annual Alumni Band members who perform at homecoming. I haven't been able to attend homecoming for 5 years or so, but this way I felt like I was there in spirit. The front of the shirt features the band's uniforms over the years, starting with the old ROTC band uniforms from the early 20th century, and progressing through to today (Casey and I once donned the white-jacketed uniform, second from right). The UNH logo recedes into the background like yard lines on a football field. The back of the shirt uses the final lyric fron the school's fight song. Sadly, it snowed, so the alumni were wearing winter coats, but the shirts were still well received!

This is where we post news, announcements, product launches, and musings on the design process. All posts written by Erik Evensen unless otherwise noted.
