MVPs of the Week: Ariel Mintzer
Ariel shared his work on rebranding his team, ThunderQuads Roller Derby, in iDerby and I fell in love. This guy get's MVP of the week not only because he made some really fucking cool designs, but also because he created a full package for this and I cannot stress the impact something like that can have on overall marketing. The whole branding kit on his Behance is so beautiful I could weep.
