Blaine Borderite Gridiron Golf Classic – Branding By: RJ Bucsko Design & Logo
Most graphic designers take on projects just like any others that they put their heart and souls into the planning, design and overall presence of the creation… but every once in awhile we get one that is near and dear to our hearts.
This was the case with Blaine High School, a little town in Washington State just north of the city of Bellingham and sits directly on the border of Canada, just south of Vancouver British Columbia.
Now, one might ask what is so special about the small Class 1A school in Northwestern Washington and why the big deal over a branding design?
The big deal is that this High School was my alma mater from 1986-1989. My dad, Bob Bucsko had just been hired by Blaine HS in the summer of 1986 as our family made the transition from Central Washington where dad had taught & coached for 4 years previously at Highland High School in Cowiche Washington.
We were immediately welcomed and the community had sorrounded our family with love and praise… it was always a tight knit community with a strong backing in sports and academics. I played for 3 years at BHS while Dad coached. Our team sports programs were very successful and I participated in Football, Basketball, Baseball and I even brought home a State Championship Title in Track & Field in the spring of 1989.
The opportunity came 23 years later when facebook introduced me to the an old school classmate now working for the School District in Blaine. She, (Tricia Johnson) saw an immediate need for a branding project once she stumbled across my Designs at Bucsko Design & Logo… Tricia contacted me about a Golf Tournament the Blaine High School Football team put on annually and asked if I would be interested in designing a brand that would stand out yet still incorporate the Circled “B” from the decal on their football helmets…. and the project was born!
With great pride and honor I now release to the public, the 2012 Blaine Borderite Gridiron Golf Classic Branding & Logo Design.
It makes me feel all tingly inside, that I can pass on a piece of my history and tradition to a school and community that had given me so much in my three years there…. the freindships, the morals, strong work ethics and a sense of real community values that I will never forget.
