Nationals 2018 Designs

Presenting the Nationals 2018 Event Logo:

Just like every year, we had a bunch of great concepts for the event logo and related designs. VCU will have some solid concepts for future team apparel, for sure.

By the way, the State of Virginia has a ton of awesome little nooks along their state border and I am more familiar with them than ought to be. Each a cool story. Mostly just people not being able to survey straight along a latitude.  Continue reading “Nationals 2018 Designs”
