If You Can Play, You Can Play

I am a freelance designer looking for a position in art direction. I am in no way associated with the NHL, the NHLPA, or the You Can Play Project. The NHL and You Can Play Project names are registered trademarks; the NHL Shield and You Can Play Project logo depicted herein are the property of their respective owners. The reproduction of this imagery will not be sold and I make no claim over its use or license. I was not compensated for the production of this mock-up, as it was intended for personal use only. I am simply a proud hockey fan and wanted to make a little something to express my excitement over the progress being made in professional sports with this announcement by the NHL. You go, hockey.
Feel free to share or reblog, but please include proper credit. I made these in about 3 hours so they’re certainly not perfect, but the idea was that this partnership sets a black-and-white, set-in-stone standard of behavior for players, coaches, and fans where previously there were varying shades of grey when it comes to homophobia in hockey.
