Sean Loose is the creator and illustrator behind the 2019 US Open's theme art. The inspiration behind the design came from New York City fans. The crowd is electric and full of energy so Loose really wanted to bring together a piece that was fan focused.
Whoa! Super cool to see these guys up along 2nd Ave. It was not super cool to fail to get this selfie right for 15 mins while the people of 2nd Ave. watched in horror. Really stoked and honored to have gotten the chance to work with @usopen on this year’s theme art. Keep an eye out for the event, and more shameless selfies.
"The design process was a long one, but I think it was well worth it for this poster," Loose said.
After four months and three different design concepts, the US Open hired Loose for the job. All the hard work paid off and his art can be see all over New York City, at the USTA Billie Jean King Tennis Center and on your tickets.
