I love Dust was recently in touch to let me know that they updated their portfolio in a big way with a wealth of new design, illustration and animation work. They continue to inspire and know that my love for them guarantees a post. Oh how I wish I was across the pond so I could knock on their door and try to see if they’d take in a wayward designer/illustrator like me.

The Nike 78 project has been updated and features some fresh new artist interpretations of the iconic Nike shoe. It’s an interesting project featuring some exciting and intelligent artists and speaks volumes about Nike’s ownership of it’s brand. Advertising agencies take note.

The above video is one of the older projects by ANSWR but it’s still one of my favorites.

The German illustrator and designer known only as DXTR has made some recent additions to his street-inspired portfolio including some new illustrations for Nike and K2 snowboarding. Look closely at the image above and see if you can spot the word ‘Nike’. It’s in there. Great visual.

There is some fun illustration work in the Behance portfolio of Italian illustrator and designer Rubens Cantuni and from what I have been hearing lately our friends in the creative industry residing in Italy need as much attention and as many projects as they can get. Hope this post helps.

I have been there before but somehow stumbled again today on the work of illustrator/designer AJ Dimarucot and was once again impressed by his work and style. It appears there are some new things in his book too that weren’t there the last time I dropped in. I am loving his free-wheeling style when it comes to type.

Can you make a 22 minute commercial? Well yeah, if you are Nike and you have athletes like Paul Rodriguez, Julian Wilson and Danny Kass to support your brand. Nike ‘just does it’.

michaelspoljaric.jpgNow Portland based graphic design Michael Spoljaric’s career path can be traced back through Attik, the Phantom Research Foundation, R!OT Manhattan, Spontaneous and now Nike where he works on the basketball account and is responsible for these excellent illustrations that I ran into on a trip to NY this summer. NOTE: Apparently the talented illustrator Saiman Chow created the illustrations. Apologies for any confusion and credit where credit is due.

Damn am I loving the graffiti-inspired work of illustrator Paulo Arraiano for Nike. It’s awesome. I am going back to the pencil big time right now. Push this machine away from me so I can reconnect to the paper first.

Wow. What a brilliant and epic spot. Wieden and Kennedy just get it. Straight up with no BS. I can’t imagine how much fun it was producing this. The spot was directed by renowned Hollywood director and producer Alejandro G. Iñarritu (21 Grams, Babel).
