Oct 16, 2014

Will Armistead ’07/M ’09 has taken a producer position with Banner Collective, a company that creates video content for the Chicago Blackhawks and other companies.

“There’s so much buzz surrounding the Blackhawks,” says Armistead. “I’m excited to provide video content for such a highly respected and recognizable organization.”

As a producer with Banner Collective, Armistead is working with videographers, editors and other creative minds to generate entertaining and informative video content for the Blackhawks and other top-notch clients, including the Chicago Cubs and the Chicago White Sox.

“Connecting fans with their favorite players is extremely rewarding,” he says.

Armistead began his career at Naperville Community Television, Channel 17 (NCTV17) immediately after graduating from North Central College in 2007. Hired as a part-time sports photojournalist and editor, he was named sports director in summer 2010. He supervised the production of several of NCTV17’s flagship shows, including “Naperville Sports Weekly” and “The Cardinal Report,” among others.

Armistead credits his success to skills he gained at North Central College and NCTV17.

“Both organizations taught me how to operate a camera and edit video,” he says. “At North Central, I developed a strong foundation for both technical and interpersonal skills. I learned how to communicate effectively and build honest relationships.”
