Old Time Hockey
This Piece of Design is in my portfolio not because I find it extremely interesting and particularly enrapturing. I've Included this project in my portfolio because it's a great example of the design process and how roadblocks can really change a project. Sports Insight magazine rewarded Old TIme Hockey with a full page add in their magazine. The very day I was given this challenge it was snowing outside and very cold. I took the opportunity to run down to the closest pond with an old pair of ice skates that belonged to my grandparents. I thought the old skates and the idea of pond hockey would really sell the idea that Old Time Hockey is exactly that.. "Old Time Hockey!" my company was on board and so was sports insight, but because we represent ourselves and the NHL, the NHL has a say, and they told us to go in a different direction. So with only a day left before we hit our deadline we scrambled for ideas and we settled on a picture of Bobby Orr. I try to think of everything as a learning experience and when I think back to this I believe I got too excited too quick. I should have presented my Idea first before getting to involved int he final product.
