High School Basketball Program
(Cover and center spread shown)
Previous programs were produced by the local newspaper in black and white. I was given the opportunity to design a full-color program. I wanted to make the players and cheerleaders appear as big league superstars by making their individual photos look like trading cards. I also wanted to provide an exciting advertising outlet for local businesses. The program sold twice as many ads as the previous year, increasing income to support the school's basketball program. I designed most of the 200+ ads. Following my suggestion, the client allowed the center spread to feature the basketball senior players and cheerleaders. We also printed the center spread as an additional separate poster to use as a giveaway item.
