Kobe Tribute Design
The Kobe Tribute Design was created by myself in response to his fatal helicopter crash that happened on Jan 26, 2020. As a kid growing up I was very much into sports, mainly basketball. I was a team captain my senior year of high school in the early 2000’s and spent much of my time playing the NBA 2k games. The design features a Lakers color scheme of purple and yellow and has a transition effect between the two colors.
During Kobe’s time with the Lakers he wore both the number 8 and the number 24 on his jersey. I’ve incorporated that into this design on the right side of the keyboard by revealing a yellow “8” when the background is purple and a purple “24” when the background is yellow.
There is also a spelling feature that I have applied to this design which spells out his name “Kobe Bryant” on the respective keys on the keyboard.
Also included with this design are additional effect layers such as a white reactive layer as well as a white audio meter layer. The audio meter layer was placed on the top row of the keyboard (over the F keys) and reveals a brighter white light with the more volume you have playing.
If the color scheme is not what you’re in to, then I highly recommend following along with the tutorial video and substituting whatever color you would like.
