The Albuquerque Isotopes, Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp and Rhode Island's sadly departing PawSox are baseball's teams where the experience is enhanced with clever design. Snappy names, funny mascots and colorful logos help sell that experience as students learn how to use Adobe Illustrator to design the graphic identity of an imaginary sports team. The instructor guides them through the technology and branding decisions that lead to the delivery of two pieces of original art: a logo and a mascot graphic. The skills learned are easily adapted for non-sports logo design projects.

Schedule Update: The schedule for this course has changed since originally published. Class will meet on Monday, October 14.
