ACU-FB-Poster-HROld Hat Creative of Norman, Okla., did the graphic design for this season’s schedule posters, one of which is seen in the graphic above and is featured on its blog this week. Old Hat does athletics marketing work for some of college sports’ most successful programs, such as Texas A&M, Michigan and Florida State.

The poster features the same image seen on the Spring-Summer 2013 issue of ACU Today magazine, shot by freelance photographer Jeremy Enlow of Weatherford, Texas.

A similar design was applied to schedule posters for women’s volleyball and women’s soccer, and schedule cards.
