I am CLE: Design by Jonathan Schmitt

I found this campaign over at design work life and, being from (the) Cleveland (area), I had to share. These designs made me smile, and though Lebron was a major blow to the hearts of Clevelanders, the city is full of extremely loyal citizens who take pride in their community and teams, despite the losing seasons and set-backs. Plus, the design is great—classic and hardworking.

Seeing these designs from Jonathan Smith (with beginning development by Marcus Thomas) made me long to flee to the Cleve—even with the unpredictable weather—and stroll the Metroparks, catch a show at the Beachland and take some instant photos at Big Fun (Eastside!).

Schmitt says his goals and the goals of Marcus Thomas were "to let Cleveland shine again and inspire pride in the town they love. We wanted the people of Cleveland to realize we are more than one talented ballplayer - WE are the living and breathing parts that have stayed in the city and keep it alive"—an inspiring attitude for any group of individuals.
