Branding and Logos

One of the biggest trademarks of Team 3556 is our bright black-and-orange brand.  Since our rookie year, GET SMART’s Graphic Design team has strived to integrate our mascot and annual game theme into our media and merchandise. We also display these themes in the pits at regional competitions and at all community outreach events.  The student-crafted designs displayed below are the result of the skills and experience FIRST has allowed our members to gain throughout the years.

2011: Logomotion

 Button:

2011 Button

As a first-year team, GET SMART decided that we wanted to brand ourselves with a logo and a mascot.  Thus introducing Botley, Team 3556’s first mascot, and our trademark orange and black look.

T-Shirt:

Our T-Shirt design in 2011 was Botley lifting up our team logo. This was a play on that year’s game, LogoMotion, beginning the tradition of incorporating the game in our t-shirt designs.

2012: Rebound Rumble

Button:

Entering our second year, we decided to make our button more simple and 3556x cooler. What better way than with the head of our mascot, Botley? These buttons ended up becoming a huge hit at the Orlando Regional competition.

T-Shirt:

2012’s Rebound Rumble competition was a basketball-themed game, which inspired us to mimic the ever popular “Air Jordan” logo in which Botley became a basketball superstar.

2013: Ultimate Ascent

Button:

Ultimate Ascent was the year of tower-climbing and Frisbee-throwing robots. Botley decided to trade out his badge for a Frisbee, thus marking the first time Botley made a full body appearance on a button.

Our t-shirt from Ultimate Ascent had Botley in a more primitive manner. Botley-Kong is shown dramatically tossing a Frisbee from the top of GET SMART towers.

 2014: Aerial Assist 

Button:

In 2014 we introduced a partner for Botley, Team 3556’s sweetheart Botlina. Inspired heavily from the Coopertition centered game, our button design displays Botlina and Botley holding up an Aerial Assist game piece together.

T-Shirt:

2014 Shirt

In this design, Botley and Botlina demonstrate how essential Coopertition is in our 2014    t-shirt. Apart, they would not be able to lift the massive game piece, but working together they are a well-oiled machine.

2015: Recycle Rush

Button:Button-2015

In 2015, Coopertition was highly emphasized, eliminating the defensive aspect most were accustomed to. Inspired by Recycle Rush’s concept- what better way is there to promote the 3 R’s other than sitting on them?

T-Shirt2015FinalDraft

The season of Recycle Rush involved the stacking of totes which incorporated teamwork in every aspect of the game. Botley has Botlina on his shoulders to aid her in putting the “litter” into the recycle bins- representing teamwork at its finest.
