Work has just been completed on a set of four matching photo-illustrations for Star Management Signings, a UK-based player management agency who represent strong talent in the world of football.
Four players from the Star roster became the subjects of dramatic, energy-filled artwork, based around the company colours and branding.
Branislav Ivanović of Chelsea FC, Robert Koren for Melbourne City, Rene Krhin of Granada CF and Jérôme Onguéné of FC Sochaux-Montbéliard are shown in action, surrounded by sparks, smoke, debris and other elements that suggest power and control.
The Star Management Signings logo forms a focal point to each piece of artwork, and radiates from the player as if to suggest that ‘they are the star’. Well that was the idea anyway. This showcases the player and their ability whilst nicely linking them to the agency. Football is a great subject to work on as it presents some excellent opportunities to get creative with visual effects to suggest movement and speed.
Star will use the artwork to promote the players on-line via their website and social media, as well as using signed prints for fundraising for their charity, Ball Boys.
