My friend's father passed away back in February 2015. They had a Memorial Paddle Out to spread his ashes. Her father was described as "The surfer. The writer. The friend. The legend." I was asked to help create a logo pulling from his favorite company and with his signature. It went on shirts and hats. We created wooden USBs that had a playlist he would've listened to. There were coasters with one side for people to write down and share memories. The large project was creating a design for her surf board that she was going to have made for the memorial. I went with bright colors that I felt portrayed her optimistic and bright outlook on life that she seems to have shared with her father.
