Diagon Alley ATX Logo Design

Amanda Steele and her husband Joel Pace are now in their 3rd year of recreating Diagon Alley in our neighborhood in Austin, TX. They’ve built all the sets from scratch and visitors stand in line for over 2 hours so they can walk through and enjoy the magic. This year, I created [pro-bono] the Bat Snitch – the official logo for Diagon Alley ATX. The Bat Snitch is a combination of Austin’s unofficial mascot, the bat, and of course, the famous Quidditch snitch. The design was immediately embraced by the Diagon Alley ATX followers and one fan even had it tattooed on her arm. All donations received at the event are donated to two charities close to Amanda and Joel’s hearts. Fabulous!
