Utilizing Adobe Draw to create unique illustrations that highlight the excitement of a summer in Vegas. Each illustration started with a rough blue-line sketch to establish the layout and scale. Once approved, the elements of the scene were created individually in high-detail, allowing pieces to move autonomously if the composition needed adjusting.

Each key art image speaks to a different benefit of the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas. The first highlights future NBA stars in a low-key, fun environment. The second shows the attitude winners will have when they tell their friends they just won a free trip to Vegas. The third illustrates a summer pool party like no other.

How the campaign played out on social media and the web, highlighting Instagram, Twitter, and Instagram stories as key advertising points, as well as the contest entrance page.
