Red carpet meets magic carpet
A paperback compilation published by ESPN and Grantland in conjunction with the MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference.
Concept and cover art for Grantland’s Guide to the Advanced Analytics Revolution.
We’re in the computational era of sports analysis, and the cover design reflects this in much the same tongue-in-cheek manner as the compilation’s title.
At TypeCon 2013, Jeff Kellem presented a typeface that recreated the font of the 1960’s-era IBM 1403 mainframe line printer. By far the most common association of the 1403 was the sprocket-holed, accordion-folded green-bar printer paper it used. Contrasting the ‘cutting-edge’ analytics with a vintage technology was a playful way to present the material.
I doubt you could actually execute a linear regression on a mainframe printer.
