The Story Behind Sports

ESPN's Bob Ley, the host of Outside the Lines, was the longest serving employee of the Network. To celebrate Bob's journalistic legacy the show underwent an entire refresh. As part of the refresh, I helped design and animate the show open, rejoins, endtags and tease toolkit. The show open focusses on some of the largest sporting stories in modern history and Bob's involvement across the decades.
