In 2014, I was asked by Hamilton College’s Social Traditions — a student-led committee dedicated towards maintaining college traditions through campus events — to design the t-shirt for the annual Mr. Hamilton male beauty pageant. The pageant allows male students, often representing a certain campus organization, to have fun and show off their bodies, talents and everything in between. Through ticket and t-shirt sales, Mr. Hamilton is a hilarious and successful way for the campus to support volunteer community service trips that take place during spring break.
Each year, the Mr. Hamilton t-shirt is designed by a different student. I was honored to have been chosen that year, and it was amazing to see other students wear my design around campus. Here is my original design, created using Adobe Illustrator.
