The first thing I thought of when I heard the words “soaring spirit” was of an eagle, not only because they are champion soars’ but also because they are the embodiment of spirit. I wanted to try to convey that image in a way that would echo the inspirational theme of Soaring Spirit. Bringing a circular element into the design made it feel whole and complete. I hope the image succeeds in lifting the spirits of people as much as the theme does.
