Wheeling Jesuit University has trusted JackWraps with the design and production of their lacrosse helmet decals for the last three seasons. In 2015, they opted for a traditional side decal set featuring their “WJU” logo. The following year they stepped up their look and went with oversized Cardinal side decals and stripes in a flashy chrome red. In 2017 they were looking for something different. WJU just purchased new Cascade R helmets in matte black and wanted a fresh, clean look to make a statement.
Landon DelPrince, WJU Lacrosse Head Coach, reached out to us with an initial concept in mind. Coach DelPrince was looking for a “black-out look” to compliment their new helmets. Our design team took this initial concept and ran with it. Keeping WJU’s brand standards in mind, we worked through a few ideas. With collaborative input from Coach DelPrince, it was decided that simpler was better—and the results were sick!
The final design includes oversized side decals featuring WJU’s Cardinal logo. The “black out” color scheme is predominately black and dark grey. The only red detail is a chrome red eye, which definitely stands out from a distance. The back panel includes a simple “JESUIT” logo that is a common branding element used throughout WJU’s athletic department.
Player numbers were added to the back of each helmet just above the back panel. To finish off the look, a West Virginia state flag decal and a #16 memorial decal were added to round out the kit. This all adds up to subtle and clean look of black and dark grey with punches of red in the Cardinal eye and the Cascade R face mask and chin.
