When it came time to introduce its new MMA/UFC show—DC & Helwani, starring Daniel Cormier and Ariel Helwani—ESPN turned to Los Angeles-based agency, Compadre. (Who, it turns out, are old compadres of theirs).
Compadre created this simple but bright and distinctive show open and package featuring the two stars in many different looks and a seasonally appropriate color palette.
