In the past year, Saint Martin's has undergone an extensive Athletics rebrand. Since our university has a monk character which symbolizes our monks, I decided to create a secondary character that would represent the new athletic's brand.
The character is modeled after the mascot, Marty, and depicts the story of Saint Martin. Saint Martin was a roman solider who cut his cloak in half to share with a beggar. The beggar later revealed himself to be Jesus Christ. Inspired by this, Saint Martin left the Roman army and became a monk dedicated to helping others. The shortened cape on the character symbolizes this act of kindness.
Using Adobe Illustrator and a rough sketch of mine, I created a vector version that will be used in future materials.
