ESPN 30 for 30 Podcast

This was a really fun project for ESPN‘s Season 6 of their 30 for 30 podcast series. I was given a rough cut in advance of the four episodes of Season 6 and asked to have a listen and come up with some imagery for each episode. We had a couple fun concepts for these and in the end went with images that show the main characters of each episode. The stories are so specific to these main characters it made sense to highlight them.

Since these will be used to represent the series and each podcast episode it was important to be bold so the work holds up at tiny sizes on your phone and in the app store.

Each of these episodes was really fascinating, telling stories I hadn’t heard before. These stories are about scandal, murder, money, salvation and subterfuge. I highly recommend you have a listen to each one, there are some great twists and turns.

One of my favourite episodes, this one is about Roberto “The Condor” Rojas and the Chilean soccer team in the late 1980s. 

I did not know the story of Kari Swenson. I won’t spoil it for you, but it’s pretty amazing. Cabin in the woods, biathlete, mountains of Montana… sounds good! 

This accompanies the story about the New Orleans Superdome, from its construction to its use during Hurricane Katrina.

A fun story about money, murder (and probably earmuffs) in Russia, as Diana Taurasi and Sue Bird make bank playing basketball in their WNBA offseason.
