Roller Derby on Film logoRoller Derby - Artwork

The Roller Derby scene not only attracts talented athletes but a whole host of individuals with the necessary skills to make to make the sport function. As the sport is totally amateur it has a very DIY and creative ethic. Below are some images from projects I have worked on plus some from bouts which I have 'worked up', to use as banners on various websites or just for fun.

Programmes

Programmes were an essential part of the Derby experience, helping those new to the sport to understand what was going on and to reinforce the theme of the bout, many bouts taking inspiration from films and music from the generation of the competitors. It gave the audience a memento of the day and helped gel teams together through creativity and a shared ownership of the day’s event. Below are a selection of the programmes I produced for the Sheffield Steel Rollergirls from 2009 to 2012.
