Sports Illustrated – Digital Projects

I worked as a digital and print design intern at Sports Illustrated the summer after my junior year of college. During my internship, I primarily worked on digital projects, including creating visuals for online stories and social media posts.


Warriors & Caps win | 6.8-9.18
With the Warriors and Capitals on the verge of winning their respective championships, I was asked to create celebration gifs for each team. I ended up illustrating and animating these two pieces, which were both posted to SI's Twitter and Instagram.


Fashionable 50 | 7.10.18
I was tasked with animating several pieces for SI's annual Fashionable 50 story, along with creating tiles for each recognized athlete based on existing print branding (the original illustrations and logo were not designed by me). These visuals were ultimately included in the cover story's digital presentation. View the complete package here.


Cover animations | June-Aug. 2018
Throughout my internship I created cover animations for each issue. These gifs were shared to Twitter and Instagram every other week.


NFL Owners Guide | 7.16.18
This story breaks down each NFL team owner's education, wealth, political donations, and more. I was given the responsibility of styling and editing photos of each team owner. View the story here.


Where are they now? | 7.9.18
This image was originally created for SI's annual "Where are they now?" print package. I was tasked with adapting it for social media by turning it into an animated piece.
