This has to be the first t-shirt I ever designed, probably from 2002. Happily, my design skills have improved significantly since then.
SPIRITedSoccer.com was a fan site dedicated to the San Diego Spirit, a pro women’s soccer team in the failed WUSA league. It was a great site, and my first web success.
Actually, running that website created opportunities for a lot of firsts. My first press pass. Beating all the soccer news outlets with the news that the team had signed Julie Fleeting. First time on the radio. First time learning MovableType and basic PHP. The most embarrassing penalty kick of my entire life…twelve years later and that one still causes a wince in remembrance.
So many memories. So many beginnings.
