ESPN Sportscenter Highlights Template

Recommended Posts

Found a ESPN Sportscenter template (.PSD) yesterday on the MLB The Show forum that was posted back in June. Not every detail is perfect but I think it's close enough.

After making a few minor changes to the original creator's template here's what my versions look like...

Showing stats/highlights from 9/28/2014. News from that day include Packers vs Bears (shown in highlights), first Packers game after Rodgers' RELAX statement, Teddy Bridgewater's first NFL start, Steve Smith vs Panthers, JJ Watt 80-yd pick 6 vs Bills, last day of MLB regular season, and Jordan Zimmermann's no-hitter.

Here's the other version that I made using parts of the template above...

I will share my 2 versions after I get some C&C first.

So I got a little C&C and got the fonts right so here are my versions of the template:

any way to get this on svg

Don't use inkscape/illustrator that often, so I don't work with SVGs often enough to know how to use them that well, so can't help.

The font you used seem to be slightly off, whether it be the typeface or the weight you used. Also, there seems to be a few little lighting differences, notably around the final scores, and a missing gradient around the emphasized stat (like here).

Great job on this, I'll certainly be using the template.

Not really that important, but I don't think baseball would still be going during week 4 of the NFL.

Check the 9/28/2014 for yourself. It was the last day of the regular season. Jordan Zimmermann threw a no-hitter.

Are you doing any other networks. This is so cool

No. I didn't originally make this template. I made some minor adjustments to the original template which I haven't shared yet.

The font in the new ESPN package is nothing more than plain old Helvetica.

Thanks. I'll work on updating the template with the right font.

Updated the OP with the fixed font and added links to download my 2 versions of the template.
