I was flicking through the new D&AD annual when I saw some work I hadn’t seen before.

McCann Worldgroup Hong Kong has created “Paper Battlefield”, a set of posters bringing to life the spirit of competition of the Nike Basketball League. The work has won the Grand Prix for Design at Cannes recently and this award follows the D&AD Design award earlier this month.

McCann were briefed by Nike to create a call-for-entry poster for the annual Nike Basketball League Competition, the most prestigious and competitive Basketball League in Hong Kong. The creative team literally translated the spirit of competition onto the posters. 350 posters were handmade by the players. Images of the top 10 players, each representing a unique skill, were turned into printing templates. Players were invited to a silkscreen workshop to print their image on top of each other. The posters became their battlefield. The random cross-printing became their battles. The printing process became the message.

I want one.



In a collaboration between Nike and Lance Armstrong STAGES is a global art exhibition to raise funds and awareness in the fight against Cancer. Starting today and running until August 8 Stages will be on display at Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin in Paris. A great site with some fantastic contributors.

I gotta admit, even as a fan of Mr Jarvis, the first 20 seconds or so left me thinking “Humm, what’s the big deal”, then it got going! A lovely bit of animation (The running action is pretty much spot on), that gets cleverer the more you analyse it. I’d be interested to see how this was put together.



Inspired by Nike’s popular Baltoro boot, Nike releases an Air Force 1 Mid in its likeness this season. Combining elements of the ACG collection, the Air Force 1 Mid features a waterproof upper construction and the implementation of their proprietary “0.44 sticky rubber” for much needed traction on slippery surfaces. I like these, available soon apparently!

Following an internet petition Nike have finally come up with the 2015 version of their Hyperdunk.

Unfortunately, the limited edition, as worn by Michael J Fox in Back to the Future II does not seal itself with an airlock, you have to use laces.

Thanks to Tom, our mate and officionado on all things Nike for the heads up on this one. We are now all waiting for the Hoverboard to be released.

I love these Table Tennis Trainers, especially the little graphic on the heel, know where I can get some?

I really don’t need any, but I want them!

So having not seen any trainers that took my fancy in ages, I decided to go back to the trusty Cons”  to help me out in the footwear department, thinking they would last me at least 5 months! Then Nike go an announce these babies – “Vintage Nike Vandal High Supreme”. The last time these made it to the public was in 2003, and before that was two decades back. Sorry Cons”, but there is a lovely spot at the back of my wardrobe with your name written all over it.
