The Tacoma Trauma are a women’s full contact football team located in Tacoma, Washington. The Trauma plays by men’s Division One NCAA rules. The organization is a member of the Women’s Football Alliance (WFA).

Owners of the team approached me with asks for dramatic artwork, video footage as well as a website with the ability to sell merchandise.

Client Meeting

Design & Technical Requirements

Client had a lot of imagery from trips in old WordPress site, but they needed to be scaled and cropped properly — large images and videos were affecting load time.

Additionally, client wanted a clean grid and large sliders to show images and categorize trips.

Client also wanted logo and site to be in earth toned colors of orange, blue and brown with the logo and various bullet points showing an icon of a person with her hands raised.
