Nike Basketball reached out to Big-Giant to design and execute a launch-day giveaway for the Kobe 8 signature shoe. As a concept, I played around with the idea of Kobe playing back in time against the greats in the golden era of the sport: Larry Bird, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Moses Malone, etc. My role included art directing which image selects to super-impose Kobe into, card and packaging design. Ultimately we had to crop out the golden-era greats (dang it, legal!), but still created a limited-edition series of collectable cards to celebrate Kobe’s game, and detail the innovations of the Kobe 8.
