Washington Commanders: Introducing Major Tuddy

Our team at Riot NYC is thrilled to announce our latest collaboration with the Washington Commanders, marking a significant step in their historic rebrand with the introduction of their new and first ever mascot, Major Tuddy. The film, which was created to introduce Major Tuddy to fans on social media was also played at FedEx Field, and made a big impact and be eye-catching for both small screens and stadium-sized displays. Working with the Washington Commanders, we brought Major Tuddy to life in the green screen clips and combined it with footage from the Commanders archives to create a compelling story. Major Tuddy’s character pays homage to the nickname “The Hogs” given to a the Washington Redskins most famous offensive line that were responsible for Washington Redskins Super Bowl wins in the ’80s and ’90s. We also included scenes of the Hogettes, fans known for their wild outfits and pig snout masks.   With a mix of humor, player interactions, exciting visuals, and references to Washington Commanders history, we created a high-energy film that was shared on all the Commanders social media channels and received widespread coverage in media outlets. Stay tuned for our next project, “Making The Mascot,” a […]

Vegas On: Creative Direction & Visual Identity

With everything from fine-dining restaurants to the hidden gems in the city that never sleeps, Vegas On is the ultimate guide to what’s new and what’s now in Las Vegas. The sizzle reel above highlights the graphics package and brand identity we created for the popular episodic Las Vegas-owned online show. RIOT provided full creative direction on everything from the logo design, brand color scheme all the way through to the motion graphics that add energy and clarity to the productions the Vegas On team makes. Using a beautiful color palette and bold fonts, we developed a visual identity brand blueprint for the Vegas On team to use across all their assets – both within show episodes and anywhere else the brand is represented both on and offline. The looping videos below demonstrate a variety of individual motion graphics assets that were created as part of our visual identity package. Other assets that were created that aren’t demonstrated include lower third assets and transitions which helped to round out our creative direction and visual identity package.

Wardrobe: App Intro

With almost 40,000 new apps released every month, we had to make sure the new Wardrobe app which allows its users to exchange and borrow high-fashion clothing would stand out from the crowd. The introduction to the app is the front door for the person using it, so we went above and beyond with this video, welcoming everyone to it in the coolest way possible. Taking a bank of awesome content from the team including clips of real users of the app, we had fun playing around with it all in very unique ways. Our creative agency goes the extra mile as always, we took the time to hand-cut real pieces of paper, filmed on a green screen, and then added stop motion to achieve an old-school and hyped look and feel. We ran assets through one of our many vintage video cameras to add true and unique VHS effects, created custom motion graphics for the logo and text moments, and composed mixed media animation layers and textures to help bring fresh, new, and unique vibes to each frame. We also chopped and mashed together some of the wildest and coolest imagery combinations, including a buffering effect called “data moshing” […]
