For the 2013-2014 regular season, the OKC Thunder tasked me to create their starting lineups graphics. This would be played in conjunction with the announcement of each player for all regular season home games.
The Thunder is one of the premiere teams in the league that has a deep passion and connection to their community. It was a perfect fit to replicate a section of downtown OKC. Utilizing Google Sketch, Cinema 4D and lots of custom Photoshop textures, the downtown section came to life. Anyone who has visited the city would quickly recognize the blue, glass tower in the background as the Devon Energy Tower (tallest building west of the Mississippi River).
The project parameters included five unique headshot sequences for each starting player. The team also needed the flexibility to interchange the billboard composites as players rotated in and out of the lineup.
