Having a close relationship with marketing at ESPN, we see (and create ourselves) lots of sports-related designs. We recently came across the work of a young Texas-based designer by the name of Nick Bascus. His growing portfolio as a whole has a very nice aesthetic, and he has a clear grasp of graphic design fundamentals like color and typography. But the work that really shines is Bascus’s series of low-polygon illustrations and posters featuring some current NBA stars. These killer designs hit all the right notes, from composition to color choices. Bascus could easily expand on this series with great success, and we honestly hope to see his work on the pages of ESPN The Magazine (nudge, nudge… @espnmag) someday soon.

Italian illustrator/designer Alberto Seveso employs some awesome Photoshop skills to merge contrasting textures for a very distinct design style. We’ve featured his work before, but had to share some of his latest work. From album artwork, to packaging for Adobe, Seveso is a true master of digital art. He brings a certain beauty and elegance to the medium. Incredible design inspiration.

Spanish illustrator David Despau has a very particular style, incorporating ink sketch and watercolor. His execution is flawless, and his impressive body of work is a testament to that. We particularly love his depiction of the latest Superman, Man of Steel’s Henry Cavill. We also admired his work a few months back in ESPN The Magazine’s Analytics Issue, within which some of our work (Barbour) is featured.

Artist and designer Chuck Anderson has a history with ESPN The Magazine (as does Barbour Design… we’ve been supporting their marketing efforts since they launched back in 1998). As a matter of fact, The Mag gave him his first big break back in 2004. Since then, he has gone on to be well regarded in the field of design, and is even credited by some with pioneering the ever-present use of lighting effects. His richly detailed (and self-taught) style is impressive, as showcased in his latest for ESPN The Magazine’s MLB Preview Issue. What could come off as gratuitous, is actually well balanced and dynamic in Chuck’s care. Great work!
