Branding / Social Media
One of my tasks while working at the Patriots / Kraft Sports and Entertainment has been to help brand their new E-Sports team, the Boston Uprising. The Boston Uprising is one of the debut teams in the brand new Overwatch League created by Blizzard Entertainment.
The mark is a B contained within a U shape to represent Boston and Uprising. A new and unique take on the conventional sport monogram. The logo is also intended to represent a shield shape.
The logo can be found during game broadcasts, on the team uniforms, and on the Blizzard Arena displays, along with multiple uses in the consumer video game. (Downloadable content for fans in game)

2018 Playoff Run
The inaugural season and inaugural playoff for the Uprising was a unique opportunity. During the season we focused the Uprising brand around the yellow and blue from the color palette. That left us with black and white which weren’t as highlighted. We decided to go all in on the black and white color palette because they were colors from our uniform and also were a nod to the Barclays Center where the OWL 2018 finals were being held.
