I was asked by Pine Box Theatre to create an image that would connect with young people. Something simple yet communicative for their pop up production to run right before the upcoming election. I used the texture of a dirty old canvas as a starting point. I was inspired by its grit and endurance which developed in my mind into the surface of an old boxing ring which I thought worked along with the theme. I then found a typeface which resembled the varsity style lettering sewn onto the backs of boxers robes in the sixties and seventies, but with a modern touch.
