Today, while most of these elements have gone mainstream and already been integrated into NBA entertainment, one pillar has yet to fully reach the sports masses.

That would be graffiti and street art, and the Public Works Department is looking to change that with its "Art of Basketball" project.

Since 2010, through a licensing agreement with the NBA, the PWD has featured a growing collection of NBA-themed pieces by leading graffiti and street artists from around the world. Their work includes player portraits, canvases expressing elements of the game and official NBA backboards transformed into works of high-impact art -- all representing hoops culture from streetball courts to the pro hardwood.

"Our passion is graffiti, street art and the urban landscape, and then coupled with sports and fashion," PWD curator Billi Kid told ESPN Playbook. "For the last two years, we've been focusing on 'Art of Basketball' because we feel there's so much meat on that bone. Hip-hop and basketball come together well, and the NBA really supports what we do."...

New identity FIT Athletics | Fashion Institute of Technology | Pentagram | ::Sports Entrepreneur Magazine:: (4093229) | Scoop.it

Pentagram partner DJ Stout and lead designer Barrett Fry in the Austin office have designed a new athletic identity for FIT in New York City. Yes, that’s right, an athletic identity. FIT, the Fashion Institute of Technology, is an internationally recognized college known for its exceptional curriculum in art, design, communications, business, and fashion, of course, but not for its sports teams.

 

The FIT Tiger identity is designed to work with FIT's existing academic logo.

Rhett Moroses's curator insight, September 23, 2013 2:51 PM

With years of development, FIT has now identified itself as an collegiate athletic powerhouse. This was suprising to me because FIT is a fashion institute that is a great academic school. I never knew that it was a great school for athletics either. The interesting reason of why no one knew of there top-ranked programs was because they did not have an identity. There was no logo for their athletics. So advertisers along with FIT graphic design students made the logo together. This article showed that being a powerhouse athletic school doesn't mean you will be well known. You have to promote your athletics with logos and advertisment. This taught me that although performance is very important, promotion and getting your name out there is imperative as well.
