“Boxing Day” boxing graphics
ShoBox broadcast graphics go the distance.
Inspired by 19th-century broadsheets, the graphics for Showtime’s boxing programming look distinctive—a nice respite from boring, brushed metal athletic typography. A review of vintage boxing memorabilia shows the sport has traditionally used this style. Hoefler and Frere-Jones’ Knockout and Proteus type families draw on the same quirky American vernacular. Because real men appear in all caps. Appropriately enough, boxing’s classic colors are black and blue and bloody red.
