Filipino artists AJ Dimarucot and Jayson Atienza made it to the NBA’s top 15 list of Vince Carter tributes—aptly called “Thank You Vince.” The tribute was launched on July 8 to pay homage to the eight-time NBA All Star.
The tribute site consists of stories, highlights, and 15 of the best digital artworks (that are also downloadable) from around the world. Dimarucot, a self-taught graphic designer and entrepreneur, has long been designing for sports brands like Nike and Adidas. He’s also known for starting the digital department of advertising and marketing agency, Ogilvy.
Meanwhile Atienza, who was born in Batangas, is a creative director who focuses on traditional and non-traditional canvases for individual collectors, public institutions, and corporations. Aside from his tribute, Atienza’s most recent artwork is a four-part permanent art installation found in Nike’s new Kicks Lounge in Shanghai.
