The Motion Battery name is a combination of the design term “motion graphics" with the popular baseball phrase “the battery" referring to the Pitcher-Catcher relationship. Much like the spark of ‘the battery' is a baseball team's most important key to success, TMB believes the spark for consistently creating quality content is found in the health of its professional relationships - that the truest form of success, is that which is shared. Shared success produces lasting energy, energy that's sure to electrify your fans both in the crowd and at home-plate. So contact The Motion Battery and let's get charged up!
Rob Rossi
Creative Director / Motion Designer
After earning his BA in 2007, Rob moved from Chicago to LA and started his career as a freelance Motion Designer. He was eventually able to land work on films and national spots for companies like Roadside Attractions and Method Studios. By 2009 he started 'perma-lancing' for Base Productions where he won two sports graphic design Emmy's (2010 & 2011) as a member of the "ESPN Sport Science" team. After marrying in spring of 2011, he and his wife moved home. Back in Chicago he continued freelancing with Base remotely, while picking up other projects. He had opportunities to create in-game, broadcast, and web content for several pro sports teams during this time and began working onsite for several studios/agencies throughout the greater Chicago area. In January 2014, Rob took a full-time position with Fuse Creative, where he extensively created content for projection-mapped surfaces and oversized displays for large corporate conferences. Traveling around the country, Rob gained onsite experience in live multi-display production and execution, as well as valuable insight into the live queueing process. He returned to freelance in the summer of 2015 and by end of year, launched The Motion Battery LLC to hone his passion for creating in-game sports graphics. In December of 2016 Rob took a another full-time position with Next/Now, where he was introduced to the world of AR/VR and extensively created interactive content for digital experiences set in physical space. In August of 2017, Rob returned to full-time freelance via the Motion Battery, eager to help transfer his new knowledge and experience into the world of sports.
