ESL MADDEN

 In October 2017 ESL contacted Strange and Wonderful requesting we pitch on an upcoming graphics package for the Madden NFL Championship Series. Having some background in live graphics and a budding admiration for the rapidly growing E-Sports industry, I was elated to have the opportunity. We submitted four designs and delivered over 50 individual animated graphics. 

 

See the graphics in action through 2017 on the ESL Twitch Stream.

 

Design - Grid Iron

My vision for the ESL Madden Championchip is called Grid Iron. As seen in the mood board, I sought to create a tactile, build-out, framework for the game information to live in. The three dimensional constructive layout promoted a definitive articulation of potential animation, getting you from A to B in a horse-powered second. Pistons, panels, perforated surfaces; These elements can pack a serious punch. 

 

Montage 

This montage contains just a few elements from the graphics package. 

 

Production

I worked along side Strange and Wonderful's team to create many of the graphic deliverables. I was solely responsible for the wipe transitions, an element used numerous times through the broadcasts to move in and out of live game play.
