OCEAN STATE WAVES - NECBL
The Ocean State Waves are a collegiate summer baseball team based in South Kingstown, Rhode Island. The team, a member of the New England Collegiate Baseball League, plays its home games at Old Mountain Field in South Kingstown.
The surfing baseball headed mascot of the Ocean State Waves is named Splash. The Waves play in a Rhode Island beach town, so naturally they wanted a beach themed character to represent their organization. Once it was decided that they wanted to use an over sized baseball headed character, I incorporated flip flops, board shorts, a tropical shirt and sunglasses into the design. Everything you need for the beach, except sun tan lotion. The feeling of motion and momentum was added by having Splash leaning forward on a surfboard with a curling wave in the background.
Below is the branding, uniform and character design I created for the Ocean State Waves.
