The Problem
Microsoft Sports has no MSN or Bing product highlighting the coming Winter 2022 Paralympic Games. One of the biggest events held on the world stage. There for users can't find any information on the para-sports being televised, the outcomes, news, etc...
The Solution
To leverage the designs created for the Winter Beijing Olympics since there was no product shipped previously for the Tokyo Summer 2020 Paralympics. Using the previous designs for the Olympics on MSN and Bing to create the Paralympics which meant giving them their own branding and icons.
