When I was assigned to this project, I was searching for a way to encompass all of the great moments captured in both tournaments. The phrase ‘history on the hardwood’ came to mind, so I decided to rip apart a photo of basketball court flooring to incorporate images into.

  • All design/concepts created and executed myself, with direction/feedback provided from the senior design manager.

  • This project was made possible with the collaborative effort from journalists, editors and managers throughout the USA TODAY Network!
