Terps Season Guide
Company The Baltimore Sun
Completed January 2015
Leaving behind the decorated ACC, Maryland's mens basketball team faced a fresh slate of conference foes in the Big Ten. This interactive, which was updated throughout the season, aggregated brief recaps of each game and linked out to full Baltimore Sun game stories, helping to document the Terps' first year in the conference - and all the success the team had.

The Sun generates a lot of content for every basketball game - lengthy game stories with interviews, photos, and more - but as the season progresses, it's rarely as readily available as it once was. This project, updated after every game, allowed us to give readers access to all that great content in one place. We liked the idea of being able to scroll through the season, so we opted for a single-page presentation with morphing jerseys inspired by the background-attachment: fixed trend.
I was the sole developer on this project, working with one other teammate who did majority of the design. Because we needed to continually update the graphic, I made sure to build the interactive in easily replicated modules - supported by various modifer classes to accommodate anomalies such as longer names - in a largely automated environment.
