BC Men’s Hockey Poster 2011

Note: Desktop wallpaper is at the bottom of the post. Thanks for visiting!

This fall 3thought was contacted by Boston College to create this years Men’s Hockey Poster. It’s a project that Matt’s worked on 3 out of the last 4 years and here’s a fun fact… Much to the dismay of BU fans, each year he’s designed the poster, they’ve actually won the NCAA Championship. This year’s team is looking good and hopes to repeat last year’s performance.

The idea behind this year’s poster was something that 3thought bounced around with BC marketing department and the hockey team. We agreed that we wanted to emphasize BC Hockey’s tradtion and excellence over the past decade, but we also wanted to let their fan’s know that this years team is ready to work hard. That’s where the motto of “Shovel Ready” came from.

From a design standpoint, we did our best to create a memorable mood with the design. We chose to only use color for the players and logo, and keep the rest icy and cold. We incorporated the three latest championship trophies into the skyline to hammer home the decade of excellence idea (looking back), and created scaffolding and construction of a new trophy (looking forward). Another little touch we added was the frozen BC logo in the middle. Many of the other sports have been using the gold button logo, and we wanted the hockey team to stand out and be unique.

The final poster size is 3 feet wide, by 1 foot tall, so it’s a bit difficult to show in it’s entirety on screen, so here’s a nice shot to show some of the detail.
