2015 MVP Disc Sports Winter Stamp

MVP Disc Sports contacted me to produce their first limited edition Winter Stamp. The idea was explained as a special release to thank all of MVP's supporters this year. This would be an open ended project focusing on a Christmas theme or simple go the Winter/Snow route. Anything winter disc golf would be welcome. 

After seeing the new available foils to my disposal, and the confirmation that there would be sparkle/glitter in the pastic, I chatted with MVP Disc Sports Art Director/ Sales Manager, Zach Kelbaugh about a snow globe idea. Toward the end of our conversation, he brings up "Chemical structure snowflakes!"  I fed off our conversation and knew what I was aiming for. A snowglobe with a winter wonderland theme. Snowflakes of some sort/ possible chemical structured. MVP Disc Sports uses a process where they use chemical bonding to fuse a weighted overmold to a plastic core. I needed to keep in mind that two different foils would be in play. 

I'm really happy with how the final product turned out and want to thank them for having faith in me to create this stamp. It was ran in 3 main colors of Red Sparkle, Green and Blue with a few experimental effects. Below shows the process from small thumbnail ideas to a rough draft. An improvement and suggestions based on the first pass to a final stage. I've also included exclusive pictures of the test run discs that MVP stamped up before production began. While scrolling through the images, there will be brief descriptions on what point of the process I was at. I want to thank everyone involved that helped me with input and feedback. Here's to 2016! Have a safe holiday.
