Jared Gibbons Design


Jersey Update

Life has been busy over the last few weeks. Between freelance, family trips, etc. I haven't had a lot of time to devote to designing more kits. Luckily, I've had enough time in the last week to finish designing Utah. I know a lot of people might have expected red rock inspiration, and I did debate that particular color scheme initially. However, I ended up using other sources of inspiration for the design. Utah is the "Beehive State" and the motto is "Industry". The monogram was designed to reflect the angular nature of most of the rock formations in Utah, especially sedimentary rocks which are prevalent in Southern Utah.  The same inspiration was used for the contrasting lines in the dark and light grays. The rest of the features draw inspiration from the state nickname. The right sleeve has a seal on it which includes a beehive and the word "Industry" along with the year 1847, the year of the first settlement in the Salt Lake Valley. The front and back have a minimal honeycomb pattern. The back also has a honeybee icon which ties all of the symbols together. The left sleeve and left leg of the bibs include the word "Utah" wrapped around them.

I'm thinking I may do an East Coast state next. I'll keep everyone informed on the details.
