Are you ready for some football (through the eyes of a designer)?!

Michigan Stadium

Michigan Stadium

One of my favorite fall activities is watching college football! There’s a crispness in the air. You’re free to don a warm cozy hoodie bearing the name of your favorite team. Those glorious pitchers of cold beer never seem to end. Aaahh…

Being a Michigan native, we’re each born and bread to be either a University of Michigan fan or a Michigan State fan. I’m happy to be part of a household that claims U of M!

As a designer, their use of color makes me proud to be a Wolverine fan. They actually break it down to Maize and Blue. I have seen the color maize described as “an arrogant shade of yellow”. It’s true! It’s BRIGHT! The high contrast in colors makes them stand out! It adds to the energy of the games. The Wolverines always stand out against their competitors. When flipping through the channels you can pick their games out right away! Whether it’s the striking uniforms or the HUGE sea of yellow that fills the Big House…you’ll know exactly when to stop channel surfing!

Would you want this team of aggressively striped, wolverine inspired helmets chasing you down?! Me neither. 🙂
