With the Mighty Gators marching to New Orleans and the Sweet 16, I thought this would be a nice time to repost this.
Original Post: As a Devout fan of my beloved Florida Gators, I was very excited to see this project roll across my desk.
Holler Apparel has hired me to design the logo for their new line of clothing. The clothing line is inspired by long time Gator legend George Edmondson Jr., known by millions of Gator fans everywhere as “Mr. Two Bits”. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mr._Two_Bits
The logo is very simple and non-distinct as it will be placed on the upper left chest similar to the Polo logo. As an artist I have to fight the urge to get overly creative. The design request was for a simple, but memorable…Very much like George himself.
This little logo might not matter to many, but millions of Gator fans anywhere, will immediately recognize his signature orange and blue tie, blue pants, yellow shirt and black and white shoes…which graced The stadium for 60 years. George retired after the 2008 Football season.
A portion of every apparel sale is proudly donated to the Mr. 2-Bits Scholarship
Non-Gators can learn more about George and his story.
It is very cool, even for the non sports fan: http://www.gainesville.com/article/20081122/NEWS/811221003
Brian and the guys at Holler U have done a great job with this. I’ll be wearing mine in The Swamp on gameday.
