Project Summary:

The Blue Stars Drum & Bugle Corps is a world class drum corps hailing from La Crosse, Indiana. In the summer of 2019, I was contacted by some of the members of the percussion section that had received some jerseys from me in 2018. They commissioned another set of branding for the summer that was to be printed on soccer jerseys for the members and the staff.

The percussion section wanted me to design these jerseys with a feel much like that of a European football club. With that in mind, we leant on fairly minimal, mono-chromatic design language. As the theme of the Blue Stars' show that year was "Call of the Wild," lots of wilderness and wildlife imagery was used to make these jerseys truly commemorative of the 2019 season. The graphics were printed onto polyester jerseys using plastisol ink.
