Blue Stars Percussion
Illustration and Apparel Production
The Blue Stars Drum & Bugle Corps is a world class drum corps hailing from La Crosse, Indiana. In the summer of 2018, I was contacted by some of the members of the percussion section that had received some jerseys from me in 2017. They commissioned another set of branding for the summer that was to be printed on basketball jerseys for the members and staff.
The members wanted me to incorporate elements of one of the Blue Stars’ earliest logos, which was script-based. By combining this idea with some more modern elements of design, we were able to come up with something that paid homage to the history of the drum corps, while still fitting with the basketball jersey feel.
The final version of the branding involved 2-color printing on the front and back of the jersey, along with custom text printed onto the back of the jersey.
