SVG On Demand: Mike ‘Spike’ Szykowny on How ESPN Reimagined Its NFL Graphics Package

While Monday Night Football was the crown jewel, the new package served all of ESPN's NFL properties

At the SVG Sports Graphics Forum, our Kristian Hernandez spoke with Michael “Spike” Szykowny, senior director, motion graphics and production planning, ESPN Creative Services, to get an inside look at the library of design elements that uniquely showcase NFL players and teams and at the broadcaster’s innovative build strategy.
