USA TODAY Sports and the American Football Coaches Association hosted a series of events throughout the 2015 season for the Amway Coaches Poll. The panel discussions featured legendary former coaches and coincided with big games at the University of Tennessee, University of Georgia, and USC, culminating in a final reveal event held at the College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta, GA.
Signage, step and repeats, and print collateral were created for all of the events, including a reveal presentation and hallway video display at the Hall of Fame. The final reveal event was open to the public and live-streamed on usatoday.com.
I was tasked with redesigning the popular NBA news and rumors site HoopsHype, into a fully responsive layout with an extra emphasis on rumors and "storylines," by far the most popular content on the site. A storyline is any collection of rumors tied together with a common theme that the user could follow over time.
We also visualized the hottest stories of the moment, to illustrate the ebb and flow of ever-changing free-agent and trade rumors across the league.
