I grabbed the Instagram handle, created a Facebook page and bought the domain name. Of course, after setting up every other account, inevitably the email address wasn't available, so I reluctantly added THE to the beginning of the address. I must now officially apologize to whomever has the email address email@example.com...I have a feeling you get a lot of email meant for me.
The point of all of this is that back then I thought of running and design as very separate skills / interests I possessed. The most design-y thing I thought I would create was my Twitter header photo...
A group of these runners had the opportunity to meet at the 2015 Around the Bay.
As somewhat of a joke, I surprised him with a quick logo which evolved to the logo he used to represent the event that fall.
