About HYPE

HYPE sports innovation is a foundation with a goal, to build and develop a network like an ecosystem that includes retail brands, athletic clubs, federations, and academia together with startups across all sectors in this highly diverse field of sports.

 

 

Our work together

 

Clients from 2017 until 2019.
I've designed for HYPE a variety of printed and online graphic products. Including company reports, business cards, documents for investors, booths, stage backdrops, and rollup for events, Online marketing banners, Landing, and web pages.

HYPE BRAND ELEMENTS

The challenges

 

When we first met, HYPE didn't have distinct design guidelines. They worked with multiple designers at the same time and each graphic output seemed for a different company. So for my work, I created unofficial guidelines. I repeat the same fonts, the same basic colors, and the same image style for all of the graphic products.

PRIMARY COLORS

Based on HYPE's former graphic materials and their logo I decided to choose the 3 colors below. I usually used them as a project foundation colors and incorporated one new color to set the project tone.

WEB PAGES

As part of my work with HYPE, I've costume designed and built with WordPress leading pages and web pages for all sorts of purposes, programs, fund resing, magazine release, etc. Pages with a strong call to action > registering / donating / buying.

 

I presented below an example. Accelerators programs that collaborate between new startups and top universities and sports clubs all across the world. The page invites the users to register for the program.

EVENTS

HYPE participated in big events and summits all over the world.
For those events, I designed large dimension prints like booths, backdrops, and roll-ups as well as flyers, cards, and brochures.

 

Below you can see an example of a summit that took place in Russia during the 2018 FIFA world cup. I combined the colors of HYPEs with the colors of the world cup identity of that year and present a bold noticeable look.

Creating Movement
 

I chose diagonal lines that I used in HYPE products before representing moving forward and colored them with the Russian + HYPE colors.
