ETC.STUDIOS just finished up the brochure/poster for BASE Hockey in order for them to get their message out via the printed medium. Not only did we come up with visual direction, but we also came up with the campaign copy… ‘BEFORE ANYTHING…’.
The ideology behind ‘BEFORE ANYTHING…’ is simply that, before anything, think about the base fundamentals to the game. Sure, hockey involves being an amazing athlete on the ice with impeccable skating skills and crazy endurance. And yeah, everyone wants to be the best, make the team, wear their number, start at their position, win the championship, get the glory, hardware and adulation form their peers, coaches and media. But before all that, before even stepping on the ice, before anything, you have understand your shot and puck control. You have to have the right stick for YOU. Not off-the-shelf. Not what looks the best or what your friends recommend. But simply and easily, what stick is right for you. Find your flex, lock in your lie and know your game.
The finished product really looks hot with the help of Teo Hunter pushing the colors on press at his new shop So Cal Graphics! This man knows printing and gives superior attention to the process so that you don’t lose all your creative in the 11th hour due to production oversight.
So basically, you get two for one!

and, 2. Poster:
So with finalization of the above brochure/poster, all of BASE’s branding is coming along nicely. This printed piece is dictating the direction for everything else as we move forward with their 2010/2011 marketing/advertising campaign in both print and online (website coming soon with integrated personal stick customization). For now, we updated the BASE hockey splash page with some of the elements and added in their Facebook and twitter accounts as well. So start following them… NOW! Just kidding. No, really. Follow them.
