Sunrise & Sparrows Tee

I proposed the flying sparrows idea in an email to the director of the team I was designing the shirt for and I explained the reason for the idea like this: ‘The idea behind it, besides hopefully looking really cool, is that birds sing and fly because they can’t help themselves — it’s what God made them to do, and they seem to love doing both. And also, having a bunch of birds flying the same direction shows unity, movement, and purpose. And they would be flying upwards, showing they are attempting to get closer to heaven and God’s glory.’

I used some sparrow vectors I found online and two fonts from Google’s webfonts collection and just fiddled with all of it in Photoshop until I was happy with it.
