Designing Real Work to Promote Nike
As a senior, Michael Crowley ’15 attracted professional attention for his digital illustrations. Here’s what he shared with his graphic arts teacher Keri Eisenberg:
“I got a message on my artwork’s Instagram page from a sneaker news page (@nicekicks – 1.5 million followers) that they want ME to do a custom piece of art for a special book they are making for the release of the 'Nike Air Mag' (the shoe that was worn in 'Back to the Future'). The founder and publisher messaged me.
“This is insane. The final book will be sent personally to Tinker Hatfield, the biggest designer in all of sneakers. He worked on the Air Jordan 3-12.”
