Seattle Kraken HIFE 2022-23 Pride Tee
The Seattle Kraken and One Roof Foundation are proud to celebrate PRIDE Night presented by Symetra with this merchandise line featuring the work of local artist Simson Chantha.
Simson is a creative who has a passion for design and color. As a Capitol Hill resident, Simson enjoys finding quiet in Volunteer Park which is a respite from the hustle and bustle of Capitol Hill. For Simson, art is a form and vehicle to get a message across. Art can also be a way of communicating beauty in the world. Simson finds inspiration in gathering many different things together; music, books, and the surrounding environment. The Progressive Pride flag utilizes colors from the traditional pride flag as well as colors that represent people of color, people who identify as transgender, gender nonconforming, and/or undefined. The design was influenced by simple shapes and hands. The hands in the primary logo represent a community of different people coming together to support one another. Simson’s Pride logo is also symbolic of support, holding communities together, and the collective impact we can have when we all work together. The hands are also powerful vehicles and symbols for communication. In the secondary logo Simson had the hands coming together to form a simple heart, a universal expression of love.
