Polar Edge

Academy Sports + Outdoors approached us to create a logo for their new line of winter products. Items ranged from apparel, gloves, hand warmers, to anything for the cold climates and in-between. We designed logos, hangtags and various collateral to be applied to their sizable inventory. PolarEdge and this logo has been a staple in their winter product inventory for many years since.
