Hey, marketing nerds! (We know you’re out there…) AAF Buffalo – a local chapter of the American Advertising Federation, just announced the next event in the the Spotlight Speaker Series will feature Todd Radom.
The talk on Tuesday, April 11, 2017 at Big Ditch Brewing Company will focus on the aesthetic of athletics from Todd’s perspective as a leading designer in the sports industry.
Here’s what it’s all about:
Every day, millions of people around the globe show their love for sports as they devote countless hours and billions of dollars to this very visible aspect of contemporary culture. Sports enthusiasts are tribal in nature. Logos and uniform designs often connect generations of fans who follow their favorite teams and athletes with dedication and intensity.
Todd Radom has been creating some the most visible brands in American professional sports for more than 20 years (think, official logos for the NFL, NBA, and MLB). He’ll discuss what it takes to design for sports, and hear why it’s like no other design niche anywhere. Todd will also talk about the process of creating a Super Bowl logo, and will go in-depth on the origins and evolution of some of the most time-honored brands from across the sports landscape.
