SVG On Demand: How ESPN Reimagined its Monday Night Football Graphics Package

“Spike” Szykowny offers a detailed breakdown of the project

ESPN’s NFL property, Monday Night Football, is a legacy title for the four-letter network. Over its long lineage, MNF has continued to remain contemporary and fresh with its on-air templates, but, for the show’s 50th anniversary, the creative team wanted to honor its history while embracing styles of the present and future.

During the Closing Keynote of the SVG Sports Graphics Forum, Michael “Spike” Szykowny, senior director, motion graphics and production planning, ESPN Creative Services, provided a detailed presentation on the thought process, influential designs, and color palette that transformed the graphics package of the 2020 season.
