Count It

The WNBA defied expectations by proving themselves and making it count on and off the court for 25 years. For the league's 25th anniversary, we let the world know it was time to Count It.

Count It was a momentous occasion celebrating the WNBA and its players' 25 years of impactful contributions to sports and society. The landmark year marked a time to reflect on the league's successes and inspire generations of young and diverse athletes. Through our season-long campaign, Count It, we not only recognized the league's many achievements but also set a precedent to keep count of what's to come. 


The commercial spot served to showcase the impressive range of accomplishments and stories that WNBA players have achieved over the course of 25 years. Narrated by basketball legend Lisa Leslie and opening on the inaugural 1997 WNBA game, the video transports viewers back to the founding days of the league upon opening sequence.

From MVP Sheryl Swoopes' game-changing pregnancy during the Title IX era to the league's powerful calls for social justice and same-sex marriage equality, the video captures the WNBA's evolution and progress. It also highlights intense on-court moments, such as dunks and Sue Bird's historic 4th championship at 40 years old, while contextualizing the league's history through various media, social feeds, and headlines throughout the years in an editorial and graphic manner.

Upon launch, the video spot featured pick-up across news outlets like People, NBC, Yahoo, ESPN, Bleacher Report, and more.

Tagline: Count It

The WNBA's 25th-anniversary tagline, Count It, was inspired by the league's ability to demonstrate what is possible. The phrase stems from a basketball term used when a player hits a shot in the face of adversity; they tell the world to "count it." As a league, we commemorated our milestone by tallying up the collective accomplishments of our players and the league, showcasing the limitless potential of women's sports. Count It served as a powerful reminder to celebrate our successes, and that we're not done making it count.

A distinct and ownable symbol for our 25th anniversary was created that leaned into the concept of tallying and keeping count — a thread back to the tagline of Count It, that also pays homage to Title IX with the roman numerals.

Fire orange on the last mark (of the logo) suggests another tally is coming next, because we're not done.
