Brief Explanation

To bring to life the spirit of competiton of the Nike Basketball League on a 2D poster.

The Brief

To create a call-for-entry poster for the annual Nike Basketball League Competition, the most prestigious and competitive Basketball League in town.

How the final design was conceived

We have literally translated the spirit of competition onto the posters. 350 poster were handmade by the players. Images of the top 10 players, each repreentating a unique skill were turnd into printing templates. Then they were invited to a silkscreen workshop to print their images on top of each other. The posters became their battlefield. The random cross-printing became their battles. And the printing process became our message.

Indication of how successful the outcome was in the market

Places for the Nike Basketball League quickly filled up, and the posters became one of the most sought-after Nike collectibles among the players' community. More importantly, being their own creation, the posters meant more than just posters to the players the creative process became an exclusive and unique experience shared only by them in their community.
