Today I am focusing on two more of the suburban purple and gold teams in the Des Moines metro - one on the north side and one on the south side.
When posting about two teams in the metro with very similar color schemes, it is easy to fall into the trap of doing the same exact thing or trying to make the changes too drastic. In this case I tried to minimalize the differences to reflect the different schools' mascots and gold hue.Much like Johnston, Indianola is often overlooked as a suburb. The high school is tucked away on a minor highway about a mile off the main drag. Their athletics program is spotty at best, but the Indians have produced professional athletes in the past.Like Waukee, Indianola wears athletic gold. I chose to minimize gold in the helmet by applying it only to the chin and chin strap. The vent covers are also gold to represent feathers worn on a headress.The school's official logo is an I (usually purple) within a circle with two feathers attached representing a Dream Catcher. The I on top of crossed sticks is merely a stand-in, although it is not the worst logo I have ever seen (if I do say so myself). Including lax sticks on a lax uniform is often frowned upon...
