It’s Derby Time, Ladies!

It’s that time of year again where I get asked to make an event poster for Tri-City Roller Derby. This is my second time making a poster for them and needless to say, it’s my new favourite project to do.

This time around, the poster is for their main event: the championship games. Killer Queens are playing Violet Uprising for 3rd place, while Venus Fly Tramps are up against Vicious Dishes for 1st and 2nd place.

I wanted the poster to have a rough, grungy feel while using clean and structured typography. Add some bad-ass, derby babes for the focal point and a dash of pink and we have ourselves a bitchin’ poster.

I used the same design and adapted it to create a Facebook cover ad as well.

Good luck to all the ladies playing, and thanks for letting me create another piece for you!

Roller Derby Dames

In terms of favourite clients to work for, I’m noticing a pattern of me being attracted to strong women…enter my next client: Tri-City Roller Derby.

Tri-City Roller Derby is a registered non-profit, all-women’s flat-track derby league. They’re based out of Waterloo, Ontario but face teams all across Canada and the U.S.

This league of women will be the first to tell you: this ain’t your momma’s derby. All the hits, blocks and spills you see on the track are real and un-staged. This isn’t just a show, but a hardcore sport.

They’ve asked me to create monthly event posters to advertise their games and events. These events survive off sponsors and ticket purchases, and in the case of this weekend’s event, a portion of all proceeds will go to Waterloo region Women’s Crisis Services.

So I get to create artwork for a group of strong, athletic women and also help support a cause that aids even stronger women seeking help?

I think it’s safe to say, I love my job.
