Since 1995, Gary Hartley has been responsible for conveying FOX Sports’ signature irreverent attitude through its on-screen innovation. Currently, as Executive Vice President, Graphics, Creative Director, Hartley oversees the make, model and feel for nearly every on-screen graphic, across FOX, FS1, and FS2.

A seven-time Emmy Award-winner, Hartley has been behind some of the greatest innovations for FOX Sports including its design approach for presenting real-time race information for its inaugural season of NASCAR coverage in 2001 – a style and feel that informed hardcore race fans simultaneously enlightening casual viewers.

Hartley and his team have constructed some of the most recognizable on-screen graphics including updates to its original “FOX Box,” an on-screen graphic that shows the score and clock, an innovation that has become the industry standard for televising sporting events. As technology improved throughout the years, Hartley has had to balance the urge of cramming too much information into the “FOX Box” with a sleek yet informative look.

One of Hartley’s best-known creations is Cleatus, the football-playing robot, which has become an unofficial mascot and symbol of FOX Sports’ NFL coverage since its debut during the 2005-06 season.

the person most responsible for conveying Fox Sports’ irreverent, smash-mouth attitude just might be a graphic designer. As executive vice president of graphics, Gary Hartley has had a hand in just about every on-screen innovation Fox Sports has used during the past 16 years.

“It’s impossible to describe how important Gary Hartley has been to the development of Fox Sports,” said Fox Sports Media Group Chairman David Hill. “He has the soul of an artist, the mind of a producer, with a sense of humor verging on developing adolescent.”

One of Hartley’s best-known creations is probably Cleatus, the football-playing robot that has become the most recognizable symbol of Fox Sports’ NFL coverage. In 2004, Hartley’s son gave him a drawing that eventually became Cleatus. Working with Blur Studio in Venice, Calif., Cleatus made his Fox Sports debut during the 2005-06 season.

Hartley has been with Fox Sports since 1995 and has been part of every technical innovation the broadcaster has rolled out in sports, including all updates to the original “Fox Box” that showed the score and clock. As technology improved, Fox executives fought the urge to cram too much information into the box.

“There’s a fine line to where you have too much going on,” Hartley said. “David Hill always wants us to use the ‘bar test.’ He wants to be able to read any graphic from the back of a smoky bar.”

Hartley credits executives like Hill for creating an atmosphere that allows for technical innovation on-screen.

“If you look at the management structure of Fox Sports, the senior executives are, by and large, producers,” he said, referring to Hill, Eric Shanks, and Ed Goren. “The focus of Fox Sports has always been wrapped around building a better product.”

Hill is effusive in his praise of Hartley.

“Who else could have created Cleatus, or Digger, or worry endlessly that our NASCAR graphics weren’t good enough?” Hill said. “There is not one single aspect of Fox Sports that don’t have Gary’s fingerprints all over it — and I can’t offer any higher praise than that.
