Archives for posts with tag: Nike swoosh

There’s no doubt that in our image-obsessed culture particular iconic brands still have a certain cachet to inspire art. And that is, at least in part, a good indicator that they are iconic. These portraits by German-based illustrator/Designer Andy Gellenberg are a perfect example. Gellenberg painstakingly created these portraits in the likeness of a few sports icons, LeBron, Tiger and P-Rod, entirely out of the ubiquitous Nike swoosh. His sense of color and tone really shines here, using such a specific form to create a larger, very recognizable image. Pretty amazing.

We’ve seen the terrific typographic work of Bilbao, Spain-based designer Txaber before (here). His latest work, a custom typeface for Nike is a great addition to his body of work. It’s composed of wooden slats, but for some added texture and dimension, Txaber curls the top layers. And the result is quite beautiful.
