Ah the good old days. Sam Houston State University. So many great memories. Got the first full-time design gig as a graphic designer with the Student Activities department. I also transitioned studies from Graphic Design to Marketing and Mass Communications and where I met my beautiful wife! Sam was alot of fun in so many ways. On the design side we really got to touch everything from; events, clubs, fraternities, sororities, recreational sports and athletics. Even cooler is SHSU has it’s own printing press, got a lot of press experience back then. Also, I have to throw in Myra and i built our first websites together I guess it was 1996 and the coolest part, the domain name registration was FREE of charge. The Internet was such a strange thing back then!
Check out that sweet logo on #32’s helmet. Yes sir. I designed that bad boy, I guess it was in 1997.
I still remember the day I found out that Sam was looking to redo their logo mark for the athletics department. Thoughts of the logo being painted on football helmets, jersies and the field was pretty cool I have to admit.
Fast-forward about 5 years and the pizza guy shows up at the front door wearing the new SH/Kat logo on his cap. That next week me, Myra, Blake and now Colby jumped in the car and headed up to Huntsvegas (Huntsville) and picked up some new gear. I am always tempted to send some apparel art and get it on the racks. Maybe we can get a design contest started for best use, most creative and most popular apparel and part of the proceeds go towards SHSU Art Program college scholarships!
