After falling into a bit of a worm hole of well designed interesting infographics online I wanted to try my hand at creating one and decided to focus it on PROGRESS wrestling. Part of the fun of this project was deciding what to convert and how, and then taking the time to log the data that was needed to compile the full graphic.
I shared the finished graphic here on my site but the team at Progress were also impressed enough to share it out through their social channels and on their website.

Off the back of creating this graphic I was approached by then Progress Champion Travis Banks to create a similar infographic based on his year in the business. There was a little bit of overlap on some of the graphics in this one but it also gave me the change to create a few new data sets to display. This full graphic can be seen here.
Upon seeing his infographic the message I got from Travis showed how happy he was with the whole thing.
This is the greatest thing I’ve ever seen

Separate to the infographics around this time I also designed a few different stickers based on some of the UK wrestling stars. These were made based on random ideas I had at the time so weren’t ever sold but because I decided to get them printed up I ended up running small competitions to give away the extras I had after using a couple from the minimum order.

Around this time, and off the back of the work I had done making an interactive Progress Trumps game I also put together an initial idea for a set of playing cards. While these weren’t fully designed as getting them printed wouldn’t have been something I could do I am very proud of the initial concept look for them.
