Nike Design Intern Showcase.

So my summer experience at nike has come to an end. I can easily say it was one of the greatest experiences I have had. I learned so much from the people I worked with and I will continue to apply it to my life and my design. All of the people I met were wonderful, and all of them had a different story to share. I loved being around that. 

So during our last week the design interns had an open house show of all of the work we completed over the summer. So here is a little something from that showcase of what I am allowed to show. I created a standing board that represented the meeting of Me and Nike for the first time. The board worked exactly as planned. It contained removable pieces that became thank you memorabilia to all the people that were a part of my experience at Nike HQ. I am so grateful for this experience... I will see you again Portland Oregon.

Surrounded by Greatness.

Today I was shown the portfolio of Chris Badon one of my coworkers here at Nike inc. He had a book full of his previous label work at Abercrombie and Fitch and Hollister. I got some great insights from him about finishing details on wovens and denim. I also had a peek at an engineer turned graphic designers early work at Hurley and his personal sketchbooks. Hignyi Khong a sketchy master. I envy this guys drawing skills. Finally I viewed a fellow intern, Esther Chang's portfolio and was literally blown away. Such talent, such understanding of the grid and typography. And then I realized.... I was surrounded by some of the best artists and designers in the country.
