Walk In The Park
Margaret Howell S/S 2012
Margaret Howell is known as a hands-on designer with a focus on "make", Howell has been able to refine how a piece of clothing is worn. Walk In The Park provides an insight into the natural look of the clothing, relaxed yet defined by the structure, feel and functionality elements that define Howell's aesthetic. Inspired by the ethos of the brand, nature, people and places we put these all together for this short piece that highlights the authentic feel of each garment.

The Sunken Ship10/05/2012
I love the way filmmaker Casey Neistat tells stories. I also love his passion for experiences, going out and actively seeking memories and capturing them on film. The Sunken Ship presents Casey's time on the island of Giglio while filming his Make It Count movie for Nike. The sinking of the Costa Concordia just of this beautiful island fascinated Casey in a way he couldn't explain, he just had to see it...
A Post New Film
With their roots pegged in innovation its easy to forget there is a simplistic past to Nike's running heritage. The Night Track is a symbol of the brands history and influence in running. We live our lives at 100 miles an hour now, always hustling, but we need to get that run in, we need to 'Make it Count'. For a lot of us the only way to do this is late in the evening.
Moving Picture Show by Jürg Lehni07/05/2012
Across the globe, analogue projections are being given up in favor of digital movie projections in cinemas, a move which is making the 35mm film format and the equipment used to produce and screen this film more and more obsolete. Moving Picture Show which is part of the International Poster and Graphic Design Festival, "re-appropriates a process normally used by the film industry to etch subtitles into the emulsion layer of 35mm film using a high-powered precision laser. By etching away the emulsion, only the clear base of the film remains.
