From the creator:
Welcome to the A. The Atlanta Hawks came to Creative Mammals looking for two animated promos to accompany the release of their latest jersey drop, the Peach 2022-23 Nike NBA City Edition Uniform. The first animation would be an artistic, conceptual tribute to the city of Atlanta, while the other would focus on highlighting the different aspects of the new jersey.
Peach up. A-town down. While the main point of these promos was to reveal this year’s City Edition jersey, we also needed to capture the city's unique energy and the heartfelt passion of Hawks fans. In order to properly pay tribute to Atlanta, we needed to showcase the city in a way that was never touristy or cheesy. Similarly, we would need to ensure our overall animation approach didn’t feel too glossy or digital.
True to the game. True to our destiny. True to Atlanta. Using gritty textures and glitchy, rhythmic animation, we created two peach-infused love letters to basketball and Atlanta. Highlighting key players and footage of fans around the city and in the stadium, we made these promos feel authentic and tailor-made for the Hawks community, just like their new Peach City Edition jerseys.
