These posters were part of a series of posters designed for the Savannah Morning News Players of the Year for Spring sports.
The series was given the title “Interwoven” to show how each player is inseparable from the game in which he or she excels. To achieve this visually, the player was photographed in studio. After knocking out the background (a task in itself as the boys player of the year was photographed against a red background), the objective was to erase and redraw bits of the player to give a tentacled, rope-like effect, which, when coupled with the same effect from the basketball, visually depicted the player and sport being bound as one. The background was created using a series of grunge brushes and gradients to establish perspective, plane, and depth.
The typography was created in Illustrator and colored in Photoshop.
