Centex, hosted over two weekends by the University of Texas at Austin ultimate teams, is a staple in the college ultimate tournament calendar. What's better than visiting sunny Austin in March to play elite college ultimate?
VC is proud to sponsor Centex 2022 and is offering all college teams attending the tournament a 15% discount on team uniforms.
The Official VC Merch Tent
Official merchandise for Centex will be introduced in the virtual VC Merch Tent... and a line of apparel will be available at the event, too.
Here's a behind-the-scenes look at how this year's logo was created by VC designer Etán Santiago.
The Creative Process
We brainstormed concepts with UT Melee and came up with this initial brief:
Big CENTEX, the ATX and 2022 aspect + a really colorful geometric cactus... maybe a tumbleweed? Maybe the 2022 ATX is inside a tumbleweed rolling away from the cactus?
Etán loves to sketch his initial ideas using pencil on paper before bringing them to life digitally.
Once the creative juices are flowing, it can help to look for inspirations. These can come from anywhere, and hit our designers in any way! Here a few images that helped spark this year's theme.
A Blast from the Past
If you weren't aware of VC's relationship with Centex, we have merchandised this awesome tournament (almost!) every year since 2011.
Here's a look at some of the logos from past years.
Follow along with us on Twitter and Instagram as we launch tournament designs all year long.
You can follow both Women's Centex and Men's Centex on Twitter for more information, and to catch the action directly from Austin this spring.
