Dan Mall is coming to Jacksonville, FL to give a talk on what Hulk Hogan taught him about great design.
Rebound this with your favorite wrestler and how they motivated you as a designer for a chance to win a FREE ticket to this event from the Path.To team.

The Ultimate Warrior has always inspired me to use bright colors within my design. Neon and fluorescents for the win!! I already bought a ticket to the @Dan Mall event on Nov. 15, (http://aigajacksonville.org/events/hulkamania-design-dan-mall/) but wanted to join in on the fun! Thanks for hosting this competition, Dennis + Path.to!

André the Giant never held back. He was considered to be the greatest drunk on earth and he once took in 119 beers in 6 hours which is pretty ridiculous. I was never a huge fan of wrestling but for a dude that took it to the limit every second of every day of his life, that's what I want to do with my design. Push past the fear and self-confidence issues and just do whatever and see what happens. Don't hold back.

What other wrestler would I choose?! Combining my favorite childhood game and love of 80s music, the incomparable Captain Lou Albano was not only an amazing wrestler, but he was a SUPER MARIO and featured in a bunch of Cyndi Lauper videos!
He is iconic and paved the way for some of the best wrestlers known to date.
WHATCHA GONNA DO WITH YOUR LIFE?!

The Macho Man has always been one of the more eccentric, energized, and original voices in professional wrestling. He would raise the bar for excitement in interviews … and for Slim Jim's for that matter — Honestly, would any of you snapped into a Slim Jim otherwise?
From a design perspective, he demonstrated how to take a style, own it, then bring it to the next level and then some.

So I was never a big wrestling fan, but I was forever changed by the awesomeness that was American Gladiators circa 1989. These big-thighed, scrunch-sock wearin', mullet-rockin', badasses taught me that being strong and going after what you want is a good thing (go 'Merica!)
In design, it's easy to get self conscious and worry too much about what other people will think. But I'm learning more and more each day, that it's about standing behind your designs, believing in what your doing. Get excited about your work, and other people will too.

Grandpa Ghostal inspired me to become a super-hero wrestler-designer by once threatening me, saying, "I will put you in a figure four leg lock until your head pops off! Then I'll roll it down a pike like a BOWLING ball! OOH YEAH!" From then on I knew I couldn't let him down or I'd be mince meat...

Although not known for any particular catch phrase- Rey Mysterio captured my imagination with his death defying acrobatic moves and 619 Finisher. His high risk/high reward style should inspire every designer to take that next leap into the unknown.
Mysterious. Charming. Deadly. And he could rock the pink. That's how I would like to equate what I've learned about design from my favorite wrestler Starman of Nintendo's Pro Wrestling fame. Just when you think you've beat him, Starman comes with a Somersault Kick or Flying Cross Chop from out of left field and you're just left saying, "Whaaaa?! That was awesome!!" Muy bueno, Starman. Muy bueno.

Sgt. Slaughter taught me that knowing is half the battle.

Sting probably had to be my favorite wrestler. He was quiet, wore a black trench coat, had a black bat, he always showed up when you least expected and was always caught lurking in the rafters. You could always count on him picking the right alliance (NWO Wolfpack over NWO black and white)
I've always done my best to be like him (however I had to lose the bat and trench coat since it always freaked people out), I'm always lurking in my studio/bedroom making things and drawing/designing, I'm quiet, and when I do make an appearance, it's always for the good guys.
by Mac Grossman
Like the chair he hit's Rickety Cricket with, The Trash Man taught me how to have an edge.
Sorry for the late response guys but we're going to go with Andre the Giant with Sean Collins! Just let the ticket people know at the door you got your ticket through the Path.To contest.
Great job everyone. Really creative stuff and even more creative choices of wrestlers.
This is awesome! Thanks so much @Path To!
