In 2013 I created a series of volleyball t shirt logos inspired by animals that most represent each of the six volleyball skills.
I called the collection, Volleybragswag.
Let's meet the VBS All beast volleyball players.
With hands of butter, Ricci the raccoon is the setter and captain of the Volleybragswag All Beast team.
She leads her team of bandits like Robin Hood, so well, in fact they’re always the first to five.
That’s Ricci’s swag, what’s yours?
Meet O. I. Gotchu the Volleybragswag Octopus - Libero All Beast First Team
She can almost be in two places at once.
She covers the middle of the court because she reads the hitter so well, tips just don’t seem to fall.
O.I. averages 5 digs per set.
That’s O.I.’s swag, what’s yours?
T.T. MUGB the Volleybragswag White Lion Left Side Hitter - All Beast First Team.
The name speaks for itself. T.T. Mugb is short for “Things That Make You Go “BOOM”
He hits like a cannon so the opposing blockers respect him faster.
With an armswing that’s hard to read he has a 42-inch vertical and a roundhouse armswing that helps him average 5 kills per set.
His nickname is "King."
That’s T.T.’s swag, what’s yours?
Tatoo the White Tiger - Jump Serve Specialist Volleybragswag All Beast Team - Honorable Mention
She serves so hard she leaves a mark.
Averages 3 aces per set.
Jump float and jump top spin are her swag, what’s yours?
Ten Cent the Bulldog is the left side beach player who passes dimes on the regular.
He prefers the standing floater serve on the sand, loves to share blocking responsibilities with his partner and has a cobra he whips out on occasion that scores way too many times.
Banging cross court into the wind is Ten Cent’s swag, what’s yours?
G.B. Blash Volleybragswag Grizzly Bear - Middle Blocker All Beast First Team
He watches the opposing setter like he watches a beehive.
For a big guy he moves fast and ROOFs players easily with giant paws that crush many balls.
G.B. averages 5 blocks per set.
"Mo" is the ref that sees everything, especially during night games.
He loves to show how well he knows the rule book any chance he gets.
He usually lets captains talk, but not always.
Red is his favorite color.
Calling tight games is Mo's swag, what's yours?
Saber, a tall libero, covers the court like he’s on the prowl for prey.
Saber pounces on any ball in his zone and never lets a ball fall in the backrow.
Averages 6 digs per set.
That’s Saber’s swag, what’s yours?
I created the signature Volleybragswag ball while working with a designer who originally started out by just creating a word logo.
I thought the word logo by itself was unremarkable and boring.
But a word ball...now that's one of the most interesting volleyball t shirt ideas created for a logo.
The ball is our trademarked logo and appears in all of our Volleybragswag volleyball t shirt ideas and designs in one way or another.
