Creatives Dan Koo and Matt Garcia recently masterminded a side project in the form of The Infinity League, a series of gifs based on the legends of sport which made us wish we’d thought of it first. “We’re two sports fanatics that happen to be creative and felt like there wasn’t a fitting enough tribute for the sports legends we grew up with,” the duo explain. “So we put our heads together and with a few beers came up with The Infinity League, a place where we create gifs that never end for sports legends that’ll never die.”
The pair concept each gif together. Dan brings the pair’s ideas to life with illustration and animation while Matt works up the captions. “At the moment we have 11 gifs that span across six sports and we’re in the process of adding more,” Dan and Matt say. Among the gifs is “three-time world heavyweight champion and silver-tongued boxer” Muhammad Ali, depicted as a butterfly blowing up to be replaced by a cartoon of the jabbing boxer. Basketball star Michael Jordan takes the form of a goat, chewing on a number 23 shirt, a pair of Air Jordans strung round his neck. “Next up is Dale Earnhardt,” The Infinity League tells us.
