"Great animation always starts with stellar design," Evaristo shared. "I want to give a big shoutout to Grant Apgar and the design team for creating a brand that lends itself to be emotive through motion graphics. Whether on broadcast, social media, or in stadium at the games, seeing our work out in the community is always an amazing feeling. It's been a great year working with the content team, and it was an honor to learn and grow under the direction of fellow motion designer Justin Hubler during his time with the Club. I am so grateful for the incredibly talented team we have here and we aim to continue this level of animation going forward."
