Special-edition uniforms for the Oregon State University Beavers football team, as part of the Nike Pro Combat Rivalry program. The uniforms were only worn once, 12-04-2010, against arch rivals the University of Oregon Ducks. I developed the uniform concept, custom numbers and nameplate typography, and worked with Nike’s Football apparel team to bring the uniforms to life.

Inspiration: The 1967 Oregon State University "Giant Killers," a nicknamed earned by beating and tying two no. 2-ranked teams and upsetting no.1-ranked USC. The Dee Andros-led team epitomizes Oregon State's blue collar, do-more-with-less mentality.
Inspiration: The varsity block language has a long history within Oregon State athletics.
