Designers constantly start personal projects to better their skills. From character design (opens in new tab) to illustration work, it's a great idea to brush up on your qualifications. Here, Croatian designer Filip Peraić (opens in new tab) has illustrated basketball player James Harden in a variety of beautiful ways.
"I started this project to avoid enslaving an expression to one style/concept," explains Peraić. "James Harden’s profile was chosen because of the belief that this 'constraint' will produce more creative approaches and produce out-of-the-box solutions. Some results will be led by more stylistic/aesthetic idea, some more conceptual or metaphorical - it’s all about developing my skills."
Already working with major brands of the world, including IBM, Mercedes Benz, WIRED, Fly Emirates, and ESPN, it seems that Peraić already has plenty of skills to offer. We can't complain though - this illustrative series is wonderful.
