A SUMMER VOLLEYBALL THEME SCREEN PRINT I t's summertime, a nd we're baaaaack! Well, almost. It's been like waiting for the pool to open, or worse. We try to be first, so we can get the perfect spot and then we can hit the water, baby! It's been a long 14 months-plus and we are so ready. Oh, how we have missed the bar- becues, concerts, and just plain get- ting together. Heck, being able to see a friend and have a handshake or a hug seems like a lifetime ago, but the pool is opening again, and summer is the main event. Time to roll out the net and "pass, set, and hit" for some overdue beach volleyball. The indus- try is coming back to life, and the belt is rolling down that decorated apparel for summer events. As you may or may not know, we do a lot of volleyball. It's kind of our thing. We have volleyball coaches, college and high school/club play- ers, parents, and students all on staff.

SUMMER VIBES The design was created using a radial layout in Adobe Illustrator for a clean and somewhat trippy look. Though Illustrator wasn't necessarily created This particular returning client definitely had to have a summer beach theme. (All images courtesy Lon Winters)
