STORYTELLING

The Design was centered around the clubs traditional colors and also incorporating the light blue to share the history of the clubs colors, worn by Barwon football club before transferring to South Barwon. Using the colors I incorporated important features in the landscape around where the football club is & was located, those designs are representing Coastal country, Freshwater Country, hill/mountain Country and including eucalyptus leaves as a sign of cleansing and welcoming you all onto Wadawurrung Country.
