The Tamis Corporation Supplied Over 150 Custom Steel Barrier Jackets for the 2015 NFL Draft in Chicago
Barrier jackets created by the Tamis Corporation were a highly visible presence throughout numerous activities related to the 2015 NFL Draft, which was held April 30 – May 2 in Chicago.
Working with the event production company C3 Presents, Tamis produced 11 different jacket designs for more than 150 barrier jackets that were placed on crowd control barriers utilized in various locations around the “Draft Town” area.
In addition to jackets spotlighting the NFL Draft 2015 logo on a black background (which were placed in the outdoor area in which coaches conducted media interviews), Tamis also produced jackets featuring the logo superimposed over the Chicago city skyline.
Other Draft Weekend barrier jacket designs included:
- “NFL Play 60” jackets which were used at the NFL Play 60 Clinic field, which hosted youth football clinics featuring NFL players and coaches. The league’s Play 60 program encourages youth to be active and play for 60 minutes per day. The Play 60 Zone was sponsored by Danimals, whose logo was also featured on the jackets
- The NFL Network logo
- Nationwide Insurance, a corporate sponsor
A number of the Play 60 Field and Play 60 Zone jackets are featured in a video about the draft weekend events which can be viewed on nfl.com.
Tamis had previously worked with the NFL and C3 in providing jackets for the NFL Scouting Combine, which was held February 17-23 in Indianapolis.
