Golf Tourney in Memory of Coach Willie Zapalac

I'm excited that Championship Hearts Foundation chose me as the graphic designer for the Willie Zapalac Golf Tournament. Willie Frank Zapalac (December 11, 1920 – May 18, 2010) touched the lives of countless young athletes through his multiple years of coaching collegiate football for Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Oklahoma State and the University of Texas.

Coach Zapalac selected Championship Hearts Foundation as recipient of contributions in his memory. Proceeds from the golf tournament will support the programs of the Foundation including free young athlete heart screenings.

Based on Coach Zapalac coaching UT and Texas A&M, I used burnt orange and maroon as the colors for the invitation. For the logo, we felt that it needed to display a football (as that's what Zapalac was known for), and of course, golf. The client was extremely happy with the end result and invitations were mailed last week. I hope that the event is a tremendous success!
