HeySport is a visual blog about design in the world of sports. 



I'm excited to check out the new Jackie Robinson movie, 42, but what has got me even more excited is the photo that's being used to market this movie all over NYC. I love the contrast in the colors and the composition of using so much white space. The thing I like most about this image is that it is a beautiful image horizontally, but still powerful and compelling when it's turned vertical. Not sure if I've seen that before...
