NFL Network
Motion Graphics 2018
Case Study
projects: the Aftermath, the Way Up, NFL Mic'd Up, Super Bowl LIII Bumps, Super Bowl Prime, Super Bowl Saturday Night
An Art Director at the NFL Network is responsible for the development and design direction of motion graphics across several shows in and out of the season. In 2018, our goal was to experiment and explore. 
the Aftermath
topics: styleframing, motion graphics
2018 kicked off with a new motion graphics toolkit for the Aftermath. Tonally, the show stood out from it’s counterparts. We saw a measured discussion of the game and its politics. This presented an opportunity to create a visual look that the show could call its own. 

Laundry, a studio known for it’s bold design, brilliantly created a hard-hitting, visual delivery system for the Aftermath.

the
Way Up
topics: development, logotype, main title design
The Way Up is a documentary film produced by NFL Films. It chronicles the philanthropic work of Philadelphia Eagles defensive end, Chris Long. 

The NFL Network collaborated with NFL Films to produce a main title that touched upon the film’s three narrative pillars: the Eagles 2017 Super Bowl victory, tragedy in Charlottesville inspiring Chris to speak out against racial inequality, and the climb of Mt. Kilimanjaro aimed at bringing attention to the current water crisis in Tanzania.
