I was a band geek in high school. In fact, my senior year I was the Drum Major of our very successful marching band. I also marched in college and worked with high school marching bands after graduation.
Needless to say, I was also a fan and followed Drum Corp (DCI) groups and competitions.
I had seen the United States Marine Drum and Bugle Corps a few times in my band experiences over the years. They were, and remain, one of the best examples of outstanding marching and drum corps performance in the world.
Known as “The Commandant’s Own”, the Marine Drum and Bugle Corp, contacted us about polo shirts for the members that could be worn in public when representing the corps.
Their logo, as with many government and military logos, is very complicated with a lot of small details that are important to the design. It was a challenge getting it to look just right, but we did and they loved it.
That summer I got a chance to see The Commandant’s Own in performance and meet some of the men and women in the corps. I’m so proud to know the shirts we created are being worn by those are serving our country.
