The steely stares of my old man before he unleashed hell on the roads of Gatton today in the Gatton Street Sprints…
We don’t need to wish you luck J-Lai. Only congrats in advance! For those who don’t know, Jessica Lai (pictured) is one amazingly talented olympic weightlifter and will be throwing some heavy sh!t around this weekend at the AWF Commonwealth Games Trials on the Gold Coast. If you were looking for something to do this weekend (J-Lai lifts Saturday morning), the Mercure Resort is where this pocket rocket and other top lifters from across the country will be strutting their stuff!
The WOD Dogs Project has taken me on a pretty special journey, meeting some amazing athletes, even more amazing dogs, and receiving some amazing support in aid of RSPCA Qld and their fight against animal cruelty… Such support as that provided by Bec Kowald of *redstar apparel! Bec kindly offered her design skills and time to come up with the funky logo design for the WOD Dogs Project (below)… Even Kara’s little Willow can’t keep her eye’s off it!
For anyone in need of branding, graphic design or wanting some quality CrossFit attire, I highly recommend Bec and *redstar apparel!
Here’s a little about Bec’s services and *redstar apparel:
I’ve always been passionate about two things in life, animals and design, so it only seemed natural for me to help Trav out with the WOD Dogs project.
My husband, Aaron, and I have a tennis ball-obsessed mini-groodle called Jackson. Jackson provides us with so much light and love, he’s not just a pet but a family member.
I am a self-confessed social media junkie, especially on Instagram, and if I could post photos of Jackson everyday without losing friends I probably would.
By day, I am a graphic designer for a corporate and creative agency, and I have more than seven years’ design experience in both the public and private sectors. One of my major professional achievements was taking the role of lead designer for the successful 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games Bid Document, which was presented in Kuala Lumpur by the former Queensland Premier Anna Bligh. In my spare time I work as a freelance designer working with clients on projects such as branding, collateral and web design.
Late last year, along with my husband and business partner, we combined a new passion (CrossFit) with design and created a CrossFit apparel company called *redstar apparel. Where we train at AJ CrossFit in Carina, *redstar is the status awarded to the strongest and/or fastest athlete in each WOD for each day. Our aim is to provide uniquely designed, high quality workout and lifestyle wear for athletes who want to stand out from the masses.
*redstar also offers affiliate branding and design services, and I have recently been working with FBP CrossFit on their CrossFit Regionals team kit, which will feature co-branded *redstar and FBP CrossFit apparel.”
