- NIKE FOAMPOSITE "PARANORMAN"
THE SHOES HAVE RISEN.
- For a couple of months, I've been working on something truly special that now you get to see. To promote LAIKA's new movie, ParaNorman, Nike and Laika teamed up once again (Nike Coraline Dunks being the first). In honor of the ParaNorman launch, I designed a new Nike Air One Foamposite inspired by the movie. The shoes are an exclusive limited edition of 800 pairs available in the US only (sorry Ecuador).
The Foamposites were given away via Twitter to the weird kids of the world and anyone who was ever one. Additionally, to celebrate weird kids, 80 pairs were auctioned off on eBay with 70% of the proceeds going to benefit Lady Gaga's foundation Born this Way and its commitment for youth empowering.
I'm truly honored to have been able to work on this. This project is very personal to me because it celebrates uniqueness and supports the efforts of people who are working towards a more understanding world. Special thanks to the design gurus at the Nike Innovation Kitchen for their support and everyone who made this happen.Packaging Design: Mike WeihsCopywriter: Nathan Goldberg

CELEBRATING THE WEIRDOS ON TWITTER
- The sneakers were given away via Twitter. For this, I designed a responsive site optimized for desktop, tablet and mobile. Keeping it with the non-traditional theme, the site is horizontal. Only the weird won.
