The Check Heard 'Round The World
If you aren't familiar with Victory Journal, then you should start checking it out. Victory is both a print and online publication that features athletes and their untold stories. The combination of strong design and unexpected story lines about sports has been a huge inspiration for this blog and other design projects.
In addition to creating a beautiful and well-written print piece, Victory has found ways to tell very compelling stories digitally. One of the most recent additions to their website is the story about when the CSKA Moscow hockey team came to play the Philadelphia Flyers in 1976 for an exhibition game. The comic book animations of Stephen Halker's illustrations bring The Check Heard 'Round The World to life.
