Zero 1

short film

Football helmets today are like cars from the seventies – hard shell, padding on the inside, good luck.

The dangers of football-related head trauma are more prevalent than ever before. It's a stark reality that is threatening the sport and the health of its athletes, current and retired. VICIS ("change" in Latin) is a Seattle startup, setting out to evolve the sport and reimagine the football helmet. This is the Zero1.

Impact Test


To launch a helmet that will change the game of football, you better have proof. In this case, proof comes in the form of an impact test. 

This brand is not only revolutionizing helmets, it's changing the way that we test helmets. 

Data Narrative


This isn't only a sports story. It's rooted in science, medicine, and engineering. It requires motion graphic data and statistical visualization.

Projecting Technology


Conveying innovation in a practical way, within a sealed product... turn off the lights, turn on the projector.
