“To announce the release of the Tricks collection we designed a limited edition presentation box that was sent out to writers, bloggers and PUMA footballers.
The box is made from 4 odd-coloured compartments which house each of the boots in the collection. Concealed magnets hold the sections together creating an adaptable and playful way of holding the 4 boots.”
“Collectively 8 people were involved in the production of these boxes. Main contributors included a carpenter, digital printers, a wood routing specialist, engravers and myself. All of the contributors were supplied with concise instructions and illustrations, with a focus on their area of the process. It was important that certain stages of the construction were done prior to assemblage, for instance; the branding cut out and engraving on the bottom end of the box had to be completed before the panels were put together, otherwise the box wouldn’t fit into the engraving bed. Likewise the sanding of the boxes happened before engraving so the marks were not stripped.
The similar tones of the corrugated card and pine complement each other while the high gloss of the acrylic band emphasizes the elegance of the brands expensive nature. The logos symbol is a stylization of the upper leg in profile, starting from knee joint and finishing at the Gluteus Maximus. The name ‘one percent’ references two topics, the first meaning; when exercising our body perspiration is made up of 99% water and 1% solute. Secondly ‘once percent’ represents exclusivity, targeting the brands high end audience. RBNo3.1 was the selected typeface. Its highly geometric form grounds the logo while movement is created when italic.”
“Corresponding with an overall re-design of all of our retail store branded print collateral, I concepted and directed the design of two shoe packaging initiatives. The first was the redesign of our standard shoe-box to be more eye catching and brand correct, with subtle but clever copy and a drive to our online presence. The second was the design of specialty packaging for our most popular shoe, a thin ballet flat that is packaged, shipped and displayed in the store in an elegant tube, protected by a soft muslin bag with a grosgrain ribbon detail.”
“Air Jordan 2012 ‘Year of the Dragon’ is a collaboration between Tom Lane & Air Jordan. What started out as a packaging artwork commission snowballed after the first round of visuals and extend to include artwork for the shoe, a bag, some apparel, and a few more things to come.
The commission was to create a look and feel that bridged the gap between ancient chinese cultural references and the Air Jordan story. Whilst also bringing an edge of luxury and prestige to the forefront. Another challenge was to create a system to the design so that it could adapt to different size boxes and be rejigged by the Air Jordan designers. The final box size was yet to be fully determined so the artwork needed to be able to expand in width and height. All the elements therefore had to be individual so they could be shifted around without destroying the overall effect.”
“Calle, in Spanish, means “Street.” This brand of slip-on street soccer shoes is the first of its kind. My goal for the redesign of this brands packaging was to capture its unique feel as a sleek street shoe, while still incorporating the power and precision of soccer. The metropolis illustration that spans across most of the package elements is meant to represent any city, from the feel of the busy downtown skyline to the sprawl of suburbia.
The structure is simple, made of one small piece of cardboard, wrapped in a bright flag for vivid visual appeal, and strapped tight with rubber clamps. The unconventional build of the package makes the experience of opening the box something the customer won’t soon forget, especially once they feast their eyes on monstrous illustration strewn across the flag. This flag can be pinned up in a room or even hung on a fence to make the perfect target for a street soccer goal. The only piece of post-consumer waste that comes from this package is the small cardboard structure, which can simply be recycled.
“OMS is a line of shoes headed by Original Marines. The need for renewal is born by the poor success of the product, both to the public at deployment. Starting from the renewal of the packaging, revealed several problems: too many product lines and were poorly organized and the mark was not sufficiently impactful.”
