PayItForward LIVE

Made at R/GA | 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.
