U.S. Olympics- Queen Underwood - (2012)

When Queen Underwood was working her way up through the women's boxing world, she could always count on her sister's encouraging voice bellowing to her at ringside, inspiring one knockout after another. Chris Harding delivers Underwood's story in an engaging stick-figure animated sequence replete with typography and enlivened with a textured, paint-like color scheme.

"For someone involved in a fighting sport, Queen's story had a surprisingly gentle tone," noted Harding. "Queen is an extremely powerful athlete, but the way she talked about her sister struck me as loving, grateful and familiar. I chose the colors and simple line drawings to enhance the overall tone of her story. I also tried to choose something that fit the clarity and innocence of this aspect of their relationship.
