Victorian Cricket Team to wear Damascus College student Josh’s helmet design
Thursday 13 February, 2020
Past student, Joshua Frawley, Class of 2019, loves art and design, and he recently entered a competition to design a cricket helmet for the Victorian Cricket Team.
Josh’s design was selected as the winning design, and will be worn by the Victorian team, during a Sheffield Shield test match on 19th March against Tasmania, at the Junction Oval, St Kilda.
Jamie said he was on social media and saw the Masuri Helmet Design Challenge, which was closing later that day.
“I saw the opportunity, and got on to it straight away, where I spent the next couple of hours developing my hand drawn design, before submitting it prior to the closing time later that day,” he said.
Josh’s design included everything he could think of at the time with objects that related to cricket, which included cartoon drawings of flowers, cricket stumps, buildings etc.
“I was over the moon when I was told I had won the competition. I have always been a cricket fan and to have my idols, like Aaron Finch, wearing my design is truly unbelievable.”
As part of the winning prize, Jamie will attend the game to present the Victorian Team with their helmets, and has received a signed cricket bat from all members of the team.
Josh wishes to thank everyone that has supported him to date, in particular his mum, dad and best friend Bonnie.
“I also want to extend a big thank you to my Visual Communications teacher at Damascus College, Anne Griffin, for helping me develop my visual design skills and getting me through VCE.”
Josh is in his first year of a Bachelor of Communications at Federation University, where he enjoys graphic design and visual communication. He dreams of one day working for Disney as a character designer.
