DeMarini, the maker of high performance baseball and softball bats and a division of Wilson Sporting goods came to FUSE to get help to design two high performance gear bags. We did a bat roller bag and a bat pack (backpack). After a ton of design work including modeling all components to be stowed we delivered multiple concepts. We developed the cut and sewn tech packs and any CAD needed for molded components. FUSE went even further and helped develop both bags and went to the factories to help push them through. The bags that came out were both named Black Ops and came in a Black on Black colorway.
The last two images were generated for a little mascot we dubbed the BATGER. This little guy was designed to capture the tough, small dog with a big bite spirit of the company’s founder, Ray DeMarini. We had heard Ray lost an eye to cancer, but it had little effect , he just became even more driven.
