Crossover Hockey branding

Currently, there are very few brands that address the inline hockey market. Many players use ice hockey equipment that can be bulky and uncomfortable in warmer environments. Crossover brings a new line of equipment built for the serious inline hockey player.

Ideation Discouraging neglected dirty clothing was extremely important to the design. This issue was resolved by adding wash bags in which dirty clothing could be placed then thrown into the washer. The earliest development focused on separating clean and dirty clothes. An external pocket was added to fit this need. An internal pocket was added to hide valuables. M

Hyper-React Senior Thesis

Kids begin sports at a young age. Parents pay a great deal of money to support their child’s exploration in sports. This curiosity leads to children trying and quitting various sports and leaves their parents paying for equipment that may only be used one season. My thesis creates a modular pad system in which the pads are rented and returned each season during this exploration.

The Problem Parents spend anywhere from several hundred to several thousands of dollars on their child’s sports activities. The contact sports of Hockey, Football, and Lacrosse are the most expensive due to the large amount of equipment needed.
