2020 NFL Draft branding

We are so proud of the branding package we created to support the ABC NFL Draft 2020. With the disruption caused by the pandemic, the Draft is one of the only sporting events that a feverish audience will have to enjoy for a while. Finding the right tonality is always a significant part of the task, this year, especially so. The team hit the project as hard as possible and developed a lot of excellent options, ultimately scoring with this brand package. Go team!

The Process

The Process

After designing the minimal, streamlined aesthetic for the ABC NFL Draft 2020, we crafted a set of highly customizable templates for the in house ABC team to create their promos.

We were tasked with creating a style that was not overly bombastic, as is typically associated with NFL sporting events. The ABC program was all about highlighting the player’s personal stories rather than focusing on gameplay. One thing we discovered during the initial design exploration was that ideas that were flashy or extravagant missed the mark tonally. This was partially due to the show’s subject matter and also partly due to societal attitudes as a result of the pandemic, so we angled in on approachability.

The client landed on an idea that used large outlined typography to convey messaging, complimented by sliding panels and lines. Utilizing analog textures like wrinkled, wheat paste paper added a tactile and personal feel.

The package was animated in a way that was easy for the client to customize. Copy, images, and footage were all set up to accommodate the retention of styles and treatment streamlining the promotional production workflow.
