I have finally finished animating 'A Future Colour Duathlon' as my final outcome for Nike78.
I challenged the function of my Nikes through an investigation into making alternative use of the shoe (other than wearing it).
I got a little bit involved with the shapes associated with a triathlon (after reading a triathlon magazine) and also the shapes within the form of the trainers before and after I had meddled with them.
The outcome of my Nike 78 project takes inspiration from everything documented in this blog and the very important key words listed below, to create a really rather pointless (but very fun) animation.
Very important key words include:
I won't post the animation just yet until the projects have been posted on the Nike78 website.
But then you will be able to see the full 1 minute of silly colour fun in all its pointless glory. Come back soon!

I am going to make a short animation incorporating all the shapes, colours and fun ideas I have discovered through the study of my pair of Nike trainers.
The first things to do is collect the shapes I associate with these 2 categories:
My Nikes + Duathlon (Running + Cycling)
These are some of them.

My pair of Nikes are not functional to me for their intended purpose because they are massive and if I wore them to go for a run or a bike ride or to do long jump in, I would surely fall flat on my face. Discovering a new purpose for them is my main objective.
Keeping sport in mind.

This blog is to document my ideas and thoughts for NIKE78, an exciting project I have been invited to take part in.
NIKE78 is run by Paul Jenkins in association with Nike, asking 78 creatives to challenge the function of a pair of Nike trainers, using sport as inspiration.
