Sports are (or at least should be) a big part of our lives. The daily routine for most of the population is pretty hectic and doesn’t leave much time for a healthy lifestyle. So I thought that today we would at least flex our creative muscles by taking a look at some useful vector illustrations that can be used in various projects.
I know how important it is to have diversified design resources, so I’ve tried to gather an array of different sports so that you can extract more elements from them. Also, I hope this will make it easier for more people to identify with something in this article. We’re going to see some seriously dynamic designs related to soccer, basketball, hurdle races, hockey, swimming, football, boxing and more. Are you curious yet?
Football vs. Soccer
There is an age-old battle between soccer and football. The supporters of each sport know what I’m talking about and although I would love to settle it once and for all, I will resume to revealing some interesting statistics today. The last World Cup was watched by 700 million people, while the Super Bowl had 111 million viewers. Despite these numbers, the average cost for a 30 second commercial during the World Cup was $250 000, while for the Super Bowl it was $3 million. Impressive, huh?
Sports equal passion
No matter their origins or customs, I believe sports are a healthy hobby to have. Whether you enjoy taking your bike for a spin, playing a game of basketball with your friends on the weekends or watching all of your favorite team’s games, it’s always nice to be passionate about something.
There are also some sports such as wrestling or sumo that are considered violent and thus, are not tolerated or enjoyed by the entire population. Nevertheless, they attract significant crowds and deserve to be mentioned among the most popular pastimes.
Sports and advertisement
As many other design related things, sports illustrations can also be found in the advertisement business. The most famous athletes practically have their own brand and advertisement companies usually ask them to endorse their products. Thus, they kind of lend their image or associate it, if you will, with certain powerful products on the market.
Before ending today’s sports saga, which I sincerely hope you enjoyed, I’m going to leave you a couple of pointers as to where to find great themed design resources. A vector pack with skaters and one with mascots can surely come in handy with your sports-related projects.
Have you ever dreamed of playing a sport professionally? If so, which one?
