The Downtown Boxing Gym Youth Program is an after-school program that focuses on three core areas of focus: Physical Training, Academic Services. Community Service. The gym has become a centerpoint for this community, providing a safe place for kids to go after school, and building their pride and self-confidence along the way. The gym also happens to be one of the best in the country, with many of their boxers making state and national championships!
We were asked to help design a menu, flyer, t-shirts, and more for their fundraiser dinner, which hosted some of the best chefs from around the city. Inspired by classic boxing posters, the material focuses on large blocky text of mixed weight and bold colors. We also altered the weight on some of the characters to to make it appear like the typesetter didn’t have the right weight in a few of the letters for a bit of playfulness.
