SVG On Demand: ESPN’s Spike Szykowny on Graphics Creation, Operation in a Hybrid Environment

The arrival of the pandemic forced a tectonic shift in the way sports-graphics and creative teams operate. Many of the remote and virtual workflows are here to stay, and production pipelines will never be the same.

At the 2022 SVG Sports Graphics Forum, ESPN Creative Studios’ Senior Director of Animation, Graphics Innovation, and Production Design Michael “Spike” Szykowny discusses how his team adapted to the onset of COVID-19, how they maintained a steady line of communication to accomplish objectives, and how to balance day-to-day operations within a hybrid environment.
