It's a very interesting read on the inner workings of being a WWE graphic designer.

Eh, it just seemed like a two page ad for Apple, very underwhelming.

I like hos the cutline under the Randy Orton art plays up how the designers used Apple products to make it when it looks like nothing more than a PhotoShop filter behind a clipped Orton figure.

Well, it's not moving in the article, so that kind of takes away some of the "impressiveness" of the final product - text moving around, people moving around, floating this, zooming that...

In a way, it's a testament to how they *overuse* the products given the increasingly frenetic/epilepsy inducing nature of their PPV package graphics.

The one change in the graphic product that I'm grateful for are the moving match-up promos. It's genius comic relief to see Shawn chuck himself in the chin or see Kane turn and flex his hand. DRAMA. I wish they'd go all out, feed our news-channel attention bandwidth, and list the tales of the tape in those pieces.

The WWE used to have killer production values. Modern TV sports production was heavily influenced by the WWE's revolutionary use of graphics, music, et al. (see the NFL on FOX).
