The Hat Maker

We arrived at the shop early in the morning as the first light entered the room. Dust particles danced through sunbeams as we began to move items around the space, debating wardrobe and the shot sequence. Nick entered and listened to what we had planned. He nodded his head, pulled a piece of beaver felt down from a shelf, set it on the table and began to work.

Worries of the wardrobe, makeup, and set dressing fell away. It didn't matter who he was, what he was wearing, or whose hat he was making - in front of the camera camera was a man and his craft, the beauty of his work uncluttered. Watching Nick work froze our day in time and if it weren’t for the light blinking on the camera we would have had no reference to the year.

In a society that often forgets the importance of making something by hand, Nick Fouquet’s artistry is a reminder of what is at the core of this country. We left inspired and grateful to be able to capture a timeless discipline passed down through generations.

We came up with several concepts to shoot the Prod 8 and landed finally on a simple clean look accenting the radiant blue from the latest release. A full day in the studio using blue plexi and a heavy lighting set up brought us to this stunning image shot by Kevin Henderson and finally retouched by Chris Meyer. The images were featured on Nikeinc.com and on the front page of Hypebeast.

One of the most exciting projects I've ever worked on. I had to pinch myself a few times as I cranked on late into the night not because I was tired, but because of how surreal the experience was. We were a small team responsible for creating the online campaign launch for Adidas and the Official World Cup game ball now seen by 2.5 million people. 

I was brought on to design the interface for the experience and consolidate the crazyness of a youtube brand takeover. Zachary Richter, the creative director, directed the video that was filmed all over the world staring the globes top players. 

Back in LA we created the ux and ui of the video experience, developing a 360 view toggle system while showing where the user has found them self on the field and how much time they have to experience the perspective of the ball and the opportunity to fully interact with the play. 

I art directed the user social experience as well, designing a clean, contemporary twitter, facebook, and instagram aggregation living live directly underneath the video. Of course the ball is there for you to buy as well, product is king, right?

The experience is something truly special, take the time to dive in here. ADIDAS BRAZUCA WORLD CUP
