We’re excited about our uniform design this year. Here is an action shot at their debut:

Bright highlights on a largely neutral uniform to stand out against a bright floor.  The backs are all white for a contrast front to back.  Each member has a randomized pattern of colored stripes, so every uniform is ‘individualized’ and has only a couple just like it.  And here are a couple process images as we designed the finished product:

Floor and Matt W. Moore

Sunday, February 20th, 2011

Our main visual influence and designer of the art for our floor is an insanely talented artist, illustrator, muralist, and designer Matt W. Moore (MWM).  He was gracious enough to work with us for our floor design for Color and Heart.  I have been a fan of his work for a long time, but the biggest inspiration was his series “Crystals & Lasers” which exhibited in Paris, France in February 2010.  Here is a link to the work, you MUST check it out.

With the generous cooperation of MWM, we re-worked one of the pieces from that series.  Here is the original:

When vectorized, flipped, color adjusted, and minorly edited, this was the result:

We could not be happier with the boldness of our floor tarp.  That is a lot of color for 4,000 square feet!

Here is a picture of our practice floor, as we waited for the real thing to arrive.  We had painted on the lines and colors.

And here are pictures of when we unrolled the floor for the first time:

And lastly, a screen shot of the entire floor in action at a show:

Thanks again to MWM. And check out all of his incredible work here.

Album cover from Feist’s “The Reminder.” Has great similarities to The Creek’s uniforms this year.  Similar neutral greys with stripes of color.  Great album, too.
