A winning team: a wealth of data and killer visualizations. Dick’s Sporting Goods is one of the world’s largest sporting goods retailers. Player jerseys are one of their most popular items—so popular, in fact, that jersey sales data has become a key point of interest for sports fans, providing insight into which teams and players are performing well in the eyes of fellow fans. DSG teamed up with Viget to bring this data to life. Now fans can get in the game by viewing, analyzing—and bragging about—their team's performance via beautifully-designed custom sales reports available at the Jersey Report.

    Our design and marketing teams first put their heads together to sketch out all the conceivable metrics that fans could use to sort DSG’s sales data. Then, our digital analysts dove deep into the previous year’s dataset to determine the most effective ways to serve a myriad of data points to consumers. Together we came up with variety of dynamic visuals that get the word out about teams, players, and the DSG brand.
