Brief

For the past seven years, I have been working with Professional Sports Publications in NYC to design professional and college sports team yearbooks and game programs. Through this partnership, I had the pleasure of creating the 2016-17 Miami Heat Basketball Yearbook.

Approach

I worked with the Heat to turn their 2016-17 brand style guide into a 156 page yearbook. I utilized their Miami location images and high resolution player photos to create a rich blend of colors and textures throughout the book. I had so much fun customizing each and every page.

Outcome

The resulting magazine-sized yearbook was delivered to the team and displayed for sale at their games. Check out some of my favorite page layouts below.

Working with Danielle on any project is always an incredible experience. Danielle is a thoughtful and detail oriented designer, often solving problems before they are able to impact the timeline of a delivery. She has outstanding organizational skills and is able to successfully complete multiple tasks despite the pressures of deadlines. Danielle never fails to deliver high quality work or rise to the challenge of a difficult project. She is a fast learner, works incredibly quick and continuously produces strong work. Our clients regularly request that Danielle become their permanent graphic designer. I highly recommend her as a print or web graphic designer.
