Maria Smith Part 2

University of Washington Softball Boardroom

From 2016-2018, I had an internship at SuperGraphics in Seattle, Washington. During the summer of 2017, the UW Softball coaching staff approached our firm seeking environmental graphics and signage to revamp their boardroom.

I was provided with the dimensions of the space, a brief on the types of graphics they were looking for, as well assome photography to include. As a softball student-athlete myself, I felt well prepared for the project, and excited to design for such a well-known program. I intended to create graphics that would inspire the team, impress the coaching staff, and excite the team’s new recruits.

It’s important to show versatility in my work and demonstrate my ability to work with a variety of clients. My style adapts depending on the kind of experience my client wants for their audience, and that varies greatly between different environments. Contrary to the simple, geometric designs of my last project, these athletic designs needed to be bold, dynamic, and attention-grabbing.
