playoffs animations


The Toronto Raptors returned to the NBA Playoffs in 2018, bringing energetic, crowd-pumping animations designed by Nice Shoes creative director Stefan Woronko with them. This marked the second collaboration between the Raptors and Nice Shoes, having teamed up last year during the team’s 2017 playoff run. The 2018 animations are rooted in team’s new battle cry “North Over Everything,” with Woronko and his team interpreting a series of variations on ‘Over’ into a series of icons, ultimately delivering over forty animated pieces running throughout the arena at every home playoff game.
