Ohio State losing a staffer

Ohio State football has been one of the top programs in the country when it comes to their creative department who are pushing out captivating videos and creative graphics year-round.

The man behind that creative process that made them a leader in college football, Samuel Silverman, recently announced that he's leaving the Buckeye staff after seven years to launch his own branding and design company, SammySilv, Inc.

Silverman is widely regarded as one of the best in college football, and at least one of his pieces has been so well liked that a player (Zeke Elliott) actually turned it into a tattoo. He started as a graphic designer in Columbus in 2012 before adding the assistant director title for creative media and branding for football in 2017 and then earning the title of director of design for the athletic department in October of 2018.

The shoes that Silverman leaves behind will not be easy to fill, but with the groundwork that he's laid and nearly every college program in America understanding the importance of graphics and branding, I wouldn't expect a program like the Buckeyes to lose a step. For Silverman, knowing his body of work, I would fully expect him to be plenty busy in this new chapter of his career.
