2013 Aids Walk T-shirt

Tasked with creating a strong, clean design for a 2013 San Francisco Aids Walk T-Shirt (Team Ike's Place), I incorporated elements of love, strength, hope, and a local icon.

The overall heart shape was my central blueprint, and I knew the red ribbon had to fit nicely inside of it. Using a 2-dimensional drawing of the golden gate bridge, I fit a pair of doves in between the vertical posts. Fluffy clouds, and a small sun over the ribbon helped eliminate all the negative space below the text.

Using a lettering style associated with 1960's San Francisco Fillmore poster art (Particularly Wes Wilson), I wrapped the important text around the illustration. I also like the bold look of the bright red against a black background.
