adidas Originals

To celebrate adidas Originals bringing back its iconic late-1980s ZX750 runners to China in a limited edition ‘bluebird dark slate’ colorway, we executed an epic guerrilla street-art campaign. The campaign engaged street artist crews in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, and Chengdu to bomb their hometowns with interpretations of the shoes in varied art styles.

Before hitting the streets, we pre-designed a stop-motion animation with hundreds of frames. Each frame of the animation featured the shoes in different positions. The frames were assigned to different artists around the country who had the freedom to recreate them in their own art stye. When the artists executed their artwork on the city walls, our photography team captured hi-res photos of each artwork. These photos were reassembled as the frames in this stop-motion video.

The animation tells the story of the ZX750s going on a nationwide journey while coming alive on city walls across China. The shoes’ urban adventure has them walking, jogging, jumping, spinning, dancing, etc., while the street-art styles and techniques morph from wheatpaste, to stencil, spray paint, marker, and stickers. The animation also links up a few select storefront treatments we incorporated into the campaign.


我们为adidas Originals复刻其八十年代末的ZX750经典鞋款进行了大规模的游击式街头艺术活动,此次旨在宣传ZX750暗灰蓝配色款在中国市场的推广。该活动集结了北京、上海、广州和成都的街头艺术家分别在各自城市中以多样化的街头艺术形式展现这双经典鞋款。

在街头执行之前,我们预先设计了一个几百帧的定格动画,这双跑鞋不停的走到不同的地点。我们将画面分配给不同的艺术家,并由他们在各自城市进行自由创作,而在每一位艺术家开始墙上创作时,我们的摄影团队则跟拍捕捉了这些作品的高清图片画面。最后这些照片也被融合到原本的定格短片中。

该短片展现了一场关于ZX750游走于中国各城墙面的国境之旅。这双跑鞋被艺术家们以wheatpaste、stencil、喷绘、马克笔涂鸦以及贴纸等街头艺术技艺在它的城市探险中漫步、小跑、跳跃、旋转、跳舞等等。片中亦展现出参与此次宣传的品牌指定店铺。

Limited-Edition Packaging Design

Sprite

We created a set of limited-edition packaging designs for Sprite. We worked with Shanghai-based digital illustrator Elephant to bring to life the basketball and skateboarding-themed cans, which feature brand ambassadors Kobe Bryant and Jay Chou. The cans were made available throughout greater China.


我们为雪碧品牌创作了一套限量版包装设计。该设计由我们与上海数码插画师大象合作完成,结合篮球和滑板的主题分别展现出品牌代言人科比和周杰伦的明星风采。该限量款罐装雪碧在大中华区贩售。

Customized Product Design

Microsoft

For Microsoft’s ongoing limited edition artist series (and to celebrate the “Year of the Snake”), we created a unique graphic treatment for the brand’s Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500. For this project, we collaborated with Shanghai-based designer Left.


我们为微软的长期艺术家限量版系列艺术家限量版系列项目(为庆祝中国蛇年)创作了特别的插画被用于该品牌的无线便携鼠标3500。在该项目中我们与上海设计师Left共同合作。

The creative inspiration for this design concept comes from the ancient Chinese text called “Mountains and Seas,” which documents various facets of nature, geography, and biology. “Mountains and Seas” says that snakes rise from the sea each year and journey to land, only to return to sea at the end of the year. The snake is an important creature mentioned throughout the book. Furthermore, many monsters and gods that are mentioned in the book have human heads and snake-like bodies. An example of this is Fu Xi and his wife Nu Wa, the Chinese goddess who, according to legend, created the world and its people.


该设计概念的创意灵感来源于中国古籍《山海经》,其中记录了关于自然、地理与生物的方方面面。《山海经》中提到蛇会每年从海中而生,然后前往陆地,只有在年终才会再回到海里。书中也提及蛇是自然界中一种重要的生物,并且,书中的许多妖兽和神仙都是人头蛇身。比如这个设计中就是凫徯和女娲,后者在中国古代传说中创造了整个世界和全人类。


Desktop Wallpaper Design

We took characters from “Mountains and Seas” and presented them in a style that is similar to the shadow-puppets that were used by Chinese storytellers in ancient times. The red seal at the base of the mouse is Left’s name represented in a traditional artist mark. The overall result is an inspiring cultural remix full of Chinese traditional imagery and modern graphic elements.


我们借鉴了《山海经》里的人物并将其以类似中国古代皮影戏的艺术风格表现出来。鼠标尾部的艺术家签名以传统红色印章的形式呈现。总体上,整幅作品充分地体现出中国传统意象和摩登图形元素的灵感碰撞。
