With the NBA Finals going on, we often check for the most updated information online. Like many other sport freaks, I tend to always check the NBA Instagram page. If you are also into both basketball and design, you will recognize these beautiful illustrations that I will be showing you all today.

Davide Barco is a freelance illustrator based in Milan, Italy and specializing in sports illustrations. “I love to illustrate sports because I truly think that sports are one of the best human ideas, as music,” said Davide Barco. Throughout the past weeks, he has been creating nicely done illustrations for the NBA playoffs.

Being a fan of sports and design, this set of amazing illustrations posted on Instagram has completely caught my attention while I was scrolling randomly through the NBA page. We see photographs of NBA players, courts, and everything else regularly. Why not visualizing them in a more imaginative way?

Davide illustrations are created in a simple geometric style with a touch of smooth gradients. He tried to emphasize the relationship of the players and the basketball in his works. To me, it seems like he is trying to tell us how important basketball is for the players. It is often their childhood dream to be an NBA player. Just like the saying of “Ball is life,” it is an attitude that basketball lovers always say, implying how they treasure every time they can play and the urge to play. It is also interesting to see how he interacts two competing team together in his creative compositions. For us, they are competitors; for NBA they all have the same dream, and the same goal. This is their passion towards basketball.

I believe these sets of design are not only nicely done visually, but at the same time, they tell us the big dream, the thoughts and the attitude behind basketball. I hope you guys love it as much as I do! Enjoy.
