Nike AirMax Day 2019

What’s in the Air...

I spent the past few months collaborating with the Nike team on this old-skool, gabber-dancing, nostalgia-filled time capsule. Go inside some Air Max Icons to see what's in the air when they were created. You know, the  90’s, the simpler era of Chumbawamba, dial-up modem and snake mobile game.

Process & Development
The assignment  was to establish a unique visual treatment for each AirMax that is inspired by the design of the sneaker and the cultural moment of the time. Here are some early explorations.

AirMax 97

AirMax 98

AirMax 720

Stuff that didn’t make the cut.

I liked the idea of AirMax 90 hyvent orange is literally an orange  having it’s skin peel off.  Unfortunately, the idea got killed. 

Early AirMax720 Design, what a happy dude ︎

Did you know Aussie bikie gang love their AirMax 98?
