A weekly livestream starring big names paying
it forward to support small businesses.

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

Early Explorations ↓↓↓

Design System + Key Visuals ↓↓↓ 

The program went live every Tuesday and Thursday for 2 months.
The team and I created around 15-40 different custom social assets for each livestream.
Toolkits were also made for all livestreams and were shared with our partners.

Tune in Animation ↓↓↓


Animations were produced based on the storyboard that the creative director and I worked on.

They were shared by the starring guests and Verizon.
