Lo-lai is a made-up game invented by a group of Duke students over 50 years ago. It is similar to wallball and played using a tennis ball, however it is also filled with many idiosyncratically unique twists. Every two years some remaining local lo-lai players host an invitational tournament to bring back some old friends and reignite some rivalry on the court. This year, in designing the poster, I drew inspiration from Olympic posters from the mid-century, pondering what an Olympic Lo-lai poster would look like if it had been included in, say, the 1964 Summer Games. I simplified the figure of the main element of the game as it would hit in one of the two corner creases on a winning shot. The logo and color scheme is also meant to evoke some history and nostalgia for the returning players, a lot of whom haven’t played the game for over 10 years.
