Nike Skateboarding

Koston 2 Seasonal Directive

Eric Koston is one of the most accomplished and respected skaters in the game. Nike Skateboarding approached us to create the look and feel of his second pro model shoe release. We created everything from the Trick Taxonomy poster to retail renderings, all supporting the existing TV spot and photo direction.
