Two words: Sports Design. We see them on Instagram, Facebook, everywhere on social media honestly. Sports Edits of many players are made by graphic designers all around the world. Graphic designs have become so popular that even some professional teams have created art pages. Teams such as Utah Jazz and the Golden State Warriors have art pages due to the major popularity of the graphic edits.
People make names for themselves because of their edits. Some edit pages become very popular because users may like the style that a designer uses. In addition, some edits include players that have on a different team’s jersey, which creates hypothetical scenarios for fans to debate.
With the new wave on social media, even companies such as Champs and BleacheRreport are hiring popular designers to design post for them. While sports design may seem like a “trend”, it’s probably not going away anytime soon.
