PayItForward LIVE



Made at R/GA NY
Client: Verizon



When the country locked down, we went live. Seven days into quarantine,
we gathered the biggest names in entertainment to help the smallest businesses with a weekly livestream.
The program streamed live twice a week for 8 weeks, helping over 10,000 small businesses survive.

My role in this project ranged from early design exploration to
production including creating the design system, photography
treatment
, key visuals, social assets, and updating the campaign website.

were shared with our partners.
