Nike 1948 Relaunched
After an extensive redesign, Nike's 1948 concept store has recently re-opened its doors in Shoreditch, London. Not only has the store had a make-over, but so has the 1948 magazine which is now available as a free quarterly iPad app.
size? & Intercity
As well as running the Art & Sole website, Intercity are a graphic design studio and sometimes we're lucky enough to work on sneaker-related projects such as this interior scheme with UK sneaker retailer size?. The project happened a while ago now (at the end of 2009), but we thought it was about time we showed it here...
Nike Swoosh Anniversary
The Nike swoosh was 40 years old on Saturday, and we definitely think that's something worth mentioning on the Art & Sole blog. Designed in 1971 by graphic design student Carolyn Davidson for a mere $35 ($2 per hour for 17.5 hours work), the Nike swoosh has become one of the most recognisable brand symbols of all time.
All Day I Dream About Sneakers
We recently rediscovered this adidas project by Melbourne based creatives Dimitri Kalagas and Chris Cork. Created in 2009, All Day I Dream About Sneakers was a global branding project created for adidas Originals and inspired by their brand creeds ‘Impossible Is Nothing’ and ‘Celebrate Originality’.
Nike 6.0 Artist Series
Nike's action sports division, Nike 6.0, has recently teamed up with artists Ben Jones, Brent Rollins, Michael Leon and Jonathan Gray on a collection of Braata LR Mid Premium's with accompanying limited edtion T-shirts. The pack coincides with Nike 6.0's latest campaign, 'The Chosen', and is themed around artist interpretations of the classic Nike slogan 'Just Do It'.
Holly Wales (& The Burgermat Show)
Our friends at the excellent Burgerac blog recently asked us (Intercity) if we'd like to contribute to the Burgermat art project. Of course we said yes, and while we were looking through the impressive list of artistic talents selected to take part, we came across these drawing of vintage Nike sneakers by illustrator Holly Wales.
