Lee Class of 2007 graduate Jordan Lee received an Emmy Award for his involvement with the design of a project with ESPN.com. He received the award in New York City at the 30th Annual Sports Emmy Awards in the category of "Outstanding New Approaches - Short Format."

"I am very honored to receive such an incredible award,” said Mr. Lee. “I always pour my heart into everything I do. My hard work and dedication to doing what I love has been recognized, and for that, I am really grateful."

The title of the project was "No Love Lost" and presented videos of a century of Chicago Cubs baseball in a new and innovative way. Each video featured a person from every decade of the past 100 years telling their stories about being Cubs fans.

Billy Corgan, lead singer of the Smashing Pumpkins, is featured as one of the people in the project relating his Cubs experience.

Mr. Lee worked in collaboration with ESPN and a design studio with whom he was contracted. According to Mr. Lee, the design aspect of the web project took about 30 hours to complete.

“I worked heavily on the design surrounding the video presentation,” said Mr. Lee. “The idea was to implement the videos with the famous Wrigley Field scoreboard.”

Mr. Lee, originally from Marysville, Wa., won the Emmy as one of the coordinating producers and sole web designer on the project. The event was held in the Lincoln Center - Frederick P. Rose Hall.

Winners in 32 categories including outstanding live sports special, sports documentary, studio show, play-by-play personality, and studio analyst were honored. The Sports Emmy Award recipients were chosen by a Blue Ribbon Panel of their peers from over 750 entries. The awards recognize outstanding achievement by individuals and programs broadcast throughout the 2008 calendar year.

A graduate of Lee University’s Department of Communication and the Arts, Mr. Lee is currently working as a designer for web and print in the Seattle area. Along with design, he also offers his clients PR campaigns and brand management solutions. His work can be viewed at www.jordanwlee.com.

"I look forward to my future in design and communications. I hope this award will open new doors for me and that I can make a lasting impact by helping others in the world through my passion of art and design."
