LOOK: Kentucky Basketball unveils 2018-19 poster

Kentucky Basketball has had some decent schedule posters over the years, but this year’s is by far the best.

Kentucky worked with renowned sports illustrator and self-proclaimed “vector monster” Rob Zilla (Robert Generette III) to create the poster, which features UK’s season-long “Dream Big” theme and original artwork inspired by the style of popular 1990s-era basketball posters.

The posters will be distributed at Big Blue Madness on Friday and beginning Saturday morning at Kroger locations throughout the state. Limited quantities are available in each store, so fans are recommended to pick up their posters as early as possible.

Yeah, I’m going to need about five of those.

    About the most amateurish graphic design imaginable. The team deserves better than this…

      What do you want a moving poster? Some people never have anything nice to say…

    Great portraits. Terrible, terrible design.

    They took this fantastic illustrator of sports figures, who gets great emotion and personality out of his portraits — his close up portraits — and made him to do these full body retro action ‘poses.’ Google “Rob Zilla” and instagram and take a look at his work — including Anthony Davis. Notice how there’s hardly any full body images.

    Now, click the poster image and zoom in to look at Quickly, Richards, Travis. Really great images of these guys. They hired the perfect guy to put the team’s real personalities on the page and then some terrible graphic designer says, no, let’s do bad retro.

    This should have been a grid of closeups. With this artist, this could have been one of the two or three best cats posters ever if not for the cheap design work.

    Cartoon caricatures, definitely NOT Gold Standard worthy. I think most fans would prefer to see actual players faces. This is a mistake.

      Then don’t take a poster when they come out?????

    2. jaws2

      I don’t need a poster for scheduling or players faces. Internet? Duh!
