Following an historical postseason run leading to their first NBA Championship, ICON partnered with the Toronto Raptors for one of their most important and high-profile projects to date – ICON Visual was tasked with producing graphics for the organization’s first Championship Banner and Ring ceremony. Our team of large format print consultants designed and wrapped a one-of-a-kind rotating ring podium that featured the largest and most expensive championship rings in NBA history. For the banner, ICON used metallic gold foil and vinyl which was heat stamped to the fabric banner adding contrast and giving the trophy a shiny effect on the black background.
The banner and ring ceremony was one to remember for the city of Toronto and Canada as a whole, with hundreds of thousands of mentions on social media and an estimated 2.6 million people watching the season opener across the country – a 39% increase from last season. Here’s to another great season for the Raptors with the chance to defend their title in 2020.
