Boston's 98.5 The Sports Hub radio station has partnered with Source Promo, a local promotional product supplier, offering a shirt design contest for listeners with the winning design being sold for a limited time and a portion of the proceeds supporting the Massachusetts's Special Olympics. My submission pays tribute to the legendary 1992 Olympic Basketball Dream Team and the iconic shirt I had as a kid, illustrated by renowned late artist Bruce Stark (shown below).
I started with pencil sketches and then moved into a digital painting process to create caricatures of each of the radio station on-air hosts under the concept name "Stream Team."
Once the caricatures were complete, the station and Stream Team logos were added in Photoshop and a short promotional video was created for use on social media.
The shirt design contest ends just before midnight on August 6th, 2023, so head on over to 98.5 The Sports Hub's contest page and vote for your favorite shirt design!
