Lanyards printed! Clean lines, bright, sharp colors.
A continuation of the work for the new recreational hockey program to be started in Perth. A lanyard, to be handed out to all participants in this program, will be accompanied by another Perth Blue Wings ‘free entry’ pass to all their home games. The lanyard was created for some extra advertising and a place to display the names of some sponsors. It also serves as a hands-on schedule with reminders of upcoming events and hockey ‘theme’ days.
These are to be printed double sided on cardstock and fit into 4″ x 6″ plastic lanyards.
The new logo was the result of a new program initiated by TeamPlayer with the assistance of the Perth Blue Wings Junior Hockey Club. With no recreational hockey program being offered in Perth, TeamPlayer has decided to offer a Sunday morning program for kids who do not want to be in minor hockey (with the costs, time commitments, and emphasis on competitiveness, many kids are left out of the sport in small towns) yet still want to learn the sport.
The name of the new program is ‘Recreational Hockey & Leadership Program for Kids!‘ and the team will be called TeamPlayer Junior Blue Wings. My job was to combine both logo’s while making a new identity for a kids program. It’s always tricky attempting to combine two logo’s which are completely different in style and color and to unify them into a new identity. I always think ‘simpler is better’. By concentrating on using the one word ‘Junior’ and the color orange found on the TP logo as the section that stands out, I think it came together. By adding the the double blue circle, taken from the Blue Wings logo, to keep it looking uniform and in one shape also tidied it up.
A print ad was made for the local newspaper (see above). The logo was used on social media to get interest and registrants -mostly on Facebook by using their advertising feature which comes at a reasonable cost. The next step is working with the local printer to get hockey jerseys and possibly a couple of coaching jackets with this logo. I will follow up with pictures when that gets accomplished.
Ok, so there was a LOST MOUTH GRUARD FIASCO this morning as we readied our son for hockey. Allowing him to sleep with us last night (something which is a ‘treat’ for him and at 9 years of age, we know will disappear soon enough) was nice and comforting, but there was just too much jostling, errant limbs, and not quite enough room to allow a solid night’s sleep. This tiredness leads to a loss of patience and gradual frustration which only made the morning fiasco that much worse. My head is foggy and a nap will be in order shortly. Otherwise my own evening hockey game will be yet another fiasco.
I am teaching myself how to use WordPress in an effort to have more choices to offer clients. The immediate allure of the clean, crisp and simple layouts that WordPress offers is quickly replaced with hours of frustration, forum navigating, and Googling to find coherent answers. It seems I am not alone. I find numerous people, elite computer savvy individuals, asking the very same questions. The responses are often complicated. Much more complicated and confusing than what I thought WordPress was supposed to offer. After some trial and error, crying for help from my partner, and just plain luck, I seem to have gotten the basic hang of how to use a few of the templates.
I’ve decided to utilize this site to display my artwork. I already made a basic html website a year and a half ago but I thought adding another, where the chance of it being seen more was greater, couldn’t hurt.

I’m not much of a writer so I gather it will be a site full of images. My work in various stages. Photos I take. Jewelry I make. And occasional rants.
