30 Days. 30 Teams. 30 Posters.

In December 2019, I challenged myself to make 30 NBA posters (one for each team) in 30 days. This was a way to improve my graphic design skills and combine my passion and interests as I’ve grown up watching basketball. All the posters were made to look cohesive in order to present them as a series.

STARTING WITH SHAPES

To start off the series, I went with more of a simple and abstract look for the posters. I played around with different shapes and colours to create depth.

Although shapes were “easy” to work with, I learned that adding too many, even small ones, would ruin the poster. I had to really think about where I place each asset to make sure it does not throw the poster off.

These were some of my favourites:

ADDING PICTURES

To make sure the series does not get repetitive, I decided to bring in images related to either the player or team for some posters.

MIXING IT UP

After working with both shapes and images, I decided to make a few with both styles. This became a bit more challenging because sometimes the graphics would become too complicated for no reason.

BAD DAYS

Doing these posters everyday, it was inevitable that some wouldn’t turn out great. Most of these were during the early stages of trying a new concept.

GOOD DAYS

Bad days always come with good days, and I definitely had some of them during these poster series. They allowed me to learn some new tools and photoshop and also experiment with some new styles.

SUMMARY

This 30 day challenge was probably one of the best things I decided to do, not only for my design career but also because of how much enjoyable it was to design these posters.
