As most of you know I have spent a number of years designing for a small Berkeley company that has been involved in some of America's biggest sporting events. We were bought by a Chicago-based Company 3-years ago called Moss Inc. We recently changed our name from Flying Colors to Moss Sports. We are still operating like a small Company with myself as the sole designer bringing in support design help when needed. I work with a Project Manager and an Art Director who is more of a PM these days. Somehow we manage.
It never gets old seeing my designs on television or in a magazine after all these years. It's truly a great job working with a team to produce graphics at such a large scale. We just finished up designing the Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic in Ann Arbor, Michigan on New Year's Day 2014. It was broadcast on NBC. It was the most successful Winter Classic to date for the NHL.
We also finished up two games in fantastic venues for the NHL. The Coors Light NHL Stadium Series at Yankee Stadium in New York and Soldier Field in Chicago were also very successful. I feel deeply honored to have designed these games for the NHL working for Moss Sports.
It was a challenge designing for these events because they were literally one on top of the other being weeks apart. We pulled it off somehow like we always do. On to the next project...
