Go Media’s Vector Packs in Super Bowl XLII

Turquoise Flag-Tip

Haha, this is pretty damn awesome. We knew our Vector Packs are popular, but it’s still makes us feel good when we see them on a national scale. I don’t know who animated this (it was NOT us, although I wish it could have been!). But there are a LOT of Go Media Vector Packs being animated. Wings, Grimey Brush Strokes, Splatters, Hooladanders, etc. There are a bunch that aren’t ours either, the animator used lots of different vectors.

    The first two that stood out to me the most were the X and O.

    Congrats on having your stuff featured like this. Too bad you couldn’t get a little extra kick back from it :) But, none-the-less, good to see your stuff on a big scale like this.

    Being the anomaly of an american football fan that doesn’t live in the US, I feel the need to point out that your headline says Super Bowl 17, whereas it was Super Bowl 42. “XVII” should be “XLII”. ;)

    Good job on the vectors, though!

    AH! So THAT’S what you use the Xs and Os for! Haha. Those, in particular really stood out to me. I’m sure when the animator started digging through his vector resources he was like “Football football football…oh wow, this is PERFECT!”

    Nice work guys, couldn’t happen to a better crew.

    Adobe After Effects is most likely what they used for the animations I would think.

    Oh wow, Travis Barker on drums.

    This is great stuff. Animator probably used after effects.. But the vectors, wow, he used so many. It wouldn’t have been anything without all of those gomedia vectors. And as other people said, The X and the O were the most notorious.

    I’d never have noticed if you didn’t point it out BUT i think that’s awesome!

    You guys definitely make some awesome packs. We used your arrows in the branding of one of our newer clients along with some custom splatters I made and a few other gomedia vectors.

    They came in handy!
