Thread: Custom Pacers poster

  1. #1

    Default Custom Pacers poster

    I was at 24 hour fitness a few nights back, at around 1 or 2 am shooting around when a guy walked in and asked if I wanted to rebound for him and then switch. We got to talking and he told me he was a graphic sports designer. He gets official photos from professional sports leagues, then draws them graphically so that they're kind of photo-realism posters. I was decked out in Colts clothes and he told me he had a few extra Colts Superbowl posters he had made for the NFL. He offered me one and I said "Wow, that would be incredible." Then he asked if the Colts were my favorite team in all of sports, and I said no, that's the Pacers. He said he hadn't done much NBA and we left the gym a little bit later.

    Last night I ran into him again and he says, "Hey, I made you a Pacers poster last night." I was in shock, and he told me the NBA sent him a few shots of Pacers players and he randomly picked two. Which two? Well, he picked TJ and Dahntay. It's pretty funny, but at the same time I really like it because it's uniquely this year. I can look back at it in a few years and say, "yeah I remember that year." It's got the Indy skyline in the background. This is a rough draft, and he's going to mail me a final version in a glossy 20" by 18".

    Anyways, I want to show you guys the poster he made for me because I think it's pretty cool. They usually sell for about $25 each. He told me to ask around to my Pacers friends about which players they would most like to see on a poster. I answered Granger immediately, but figured I'd come here to see who else you guys would like to see on a poster. I was thinking a Granger + Hansbrough poster with Conseco Fieldhouse in the background would be awesome. What do you guys think? What players would most make you want one?

    Anyways, here's the poster. The style is really unlike anything I've seen before.

    One of the best Pacer posters I've seen from a composition standpoint. I could see potential for a series of just about all Pacers players.

    Also, I could see a series of these for all of the people who have been honored with having had retired number banners lifted to the rafters, including Slick and Mel, with a just a little more white space left at the bottom for a few stats or a very short bio about each of them, and hopefully a digital image of their signatures superimposed over the lower right hand corner of the image panel.

    Additionally, a series of Fantastic Franchise Moments digitally enhanced in this way to commemorate big moments in franchise history might be nice as well.

    This is pretty awesome! I'd consider taking one if he could put 3 players on there (Granger, Hibbert, Hansbrough).

    Those look almost old school, like early 90's basketball cards. I like it.

    The one with Granger and Hansbrough - I'd go for a landscape poster of that Conseco Fieldhouse rendition. Maybe have something like Granger and Miller in the background.

    He has done a few retro posters, like Celtics with Bird, Pistons with Isiah, Bulls with Mike and Lakers with Kobe and Shaq. In terms of contemporary NBA, this is it. His style is exclusively shown in these Pacers posters he made especially for me and all other Pacers fans out there. They may not be perfect, but what you see is what he made, and since they take like 8-10 hours to make they're pretty much final. Like I said I'm digging them because they uniquely show this 09-10 season, and because they are uniquely Pacers, no other team can get posters in this style. They are awesomely one-of-a-kind. Here is some information he wanted me to give you guys:

    All prints are 24X18 inches (Printed on 80lbs gloss stock). They are good-sized, quality posters.

    price is $ 25.00 plus $6.50 S& H

    Contact him at: msmdesignsinc@gmail.com

    I'm not too sure about where he can ship to, you'll have to contact him. The price is final since this is a special side project, he needs to break even at the minimum.

    Just for fun, here's a shot of his Colts Superbowl XLI print. I don't know if he still has these for sale, but it's cool to at least look at:
