Someone in the Washington Commanders team: Hey! Is this Fill in the blank Graphic Design?

Fill in the blank Graphic Design: Oh, yeah… yeah – can I help you?

Someone in the Washington Commanders team: Yeah… hey we need a design for our new team name for our mugs and stuff…

Fill in the blank Graphic Design: No worries – I can have something back to you in a few days…

Someone in the Washington Commanders team: Great! We’d like our new “W” on top of the outline of Washington

Fill in the blank Graphic Design: Cool! Email me your new “W” and we’ll design a great new graphic!

Someone in the Washington Commanders team: Great… I’m sending it over now.

Fill in the blank Graphic Design: OK man! Just got it — I’ll just put it on top of an outline of Washington!
