Godwin 1-2-1 is a project I successfully completed for Coach Godwin Iwelumo, a renowned soccer coach in the Lake Norman, NC area. When Godwin decided to open his own private soccer academy, he asked me to help build his brand from the ground up. We started with his chosen colors. Then, I did some research into his long career, which began as both an international and club player in Nigeria. This gave me the background I needed to design several concepts for his logo.
Once we settled on a logo, we built the website around it, with a fully functional backend content management system that Godwin uses to share information about his Academy. Over the years, the site has also become an archive of historical photographs spanning his long career in the sport. Converting many of these delicate b&w photos to digital, categorizing them and putting them into galleries to share with the world. Every now and then we get email from soccer fans around the world, in particular, those of the Nigerian National Team of the 1970s, thanking Godwin for sharing these memories.
