Finding inspiration for sports graphic design can be a tireless search on multiple search engines and countless hours surfing social media. For many of us in the industry after searching you just give up after seeing a lot of the same post or designs that look generic or like everyone else’s. To put it simply it just becomes noise.
I wanted to find a place where I could type in “football season ticket design” and be brought to a library full of examples and new ideas. I would sometimes get close but it would usually end up being a another generic blog.
Which is why I want to introduce you to behance.net
Behance is a network created by Adobe to showcase & discover creative work by graphic designers. It’s primary use is to introduce creators to employers but I found it helpful for another use, finding inspiration for sports graphic design.
I began by typing in a generic search for “football season tickets” and I was greeted by a treasure trove of campaigns, booklets, artwork, packets, and the list just went on.
The quality of these projects are top notch as well, these are created by folks who are at the top of their field right now doing projects for NFL teams and College football. Just check out these shots from a random one I picked for the Sun Devils done by Sara Bielski:
And it’s not just football, type in any sport and you’ll be meet with hundreds of sports graphic design ideas and examples. I fully recommend checking it out and killing a lazy afternoon looking at all the awesome work by these graphic designers and hopefully you’ll find inspiration for your next project or even get in contact with one these awesome designers and give em’ some work.
p.s. pretty commonsense but just in case, don’t rip these people off. These folks put in a ton of work and hours to make great content for the masses. If you’ve ever done design work you’ll know what I mean. Draw inspiration from these pieces of art and enjoy the creative process.
