Tixinda for Nike

Tixinda for Nike

The unbelievable Tixinda team knock is straight out of the park with their Mayan stylings. The colours, lines and a spirited take on traditional art keep me going through these hot summer nights.

One of the easiest ways to embrace something is to understand the process used to create it. Onitsuka Tiger used a great origami treatment for their 2007 campaign.

Type Theory has a great break down of the hand lettered General Electric print ad typography from 1951. It’s classic car season, so I had to throw in a few auto ads as well.

After a few months of hanging out with boys who tag walls when they drink, I’ve found myself restless. I don’t have the artistic or delinquent tendencies to vandalise public spaces so¬† I end up skulking in the shadows while they bomb. My left-brain sees all the ‘creative’ spelling and grammar¬† of lesser artists and I joke about keeping myself busy with a crimson paint pen, circling, correcting and grading their bathroom-wall scrawls.

The London College of Communications must be feeling the same way. Their guerilla marketing campaign is an apt, funny and visually arresting way to encourage artists off the streets and into design school.

Olle Hemmendorff Air Max 90 for Nike

I had a really mature piece ready to post and got distracted by Olle Hemmendorf‘s rendition of the Air Max 90. I’ve never been drawn to Nike’s ethos or aesthetics but I have a lot of respect for them after yet another solid year of inspired advertising.

Last year’s Vintage Running campaign didn’t affect my love of old print ads and catalogues much either. To maintain a lifestyle brand from such dissimilar angles is overwhelming, and a testament to the marketing managers and cool hunters running Nike’s on campus track in Oregon.
