What did John create for us? Our FS! Heroes:
Our FightSong! Heroes were created as uniquely complicated individuals that all students could find a little bit of themselves in. John's inspiration for them was as authentic as they come:
Why did John create these characters?
Originally, the characters John designed for FS! were for our poster campaign. But we fell in love with how interesting each of them were and decided to make the characters part of our brand identity. Now, every FightSong! school receives art quality posters featuring all of the characters and they can be seen throughout our website and social media.
