NIKECRAFT MARS YARD 2.0

In May 2012, Nike and artist Tom Sachs partnered to release the NikeCraft Mars Yard, a shoe inspired by Sachs’ relationship with NASA’s scientists. It was designed as a high-performance equipment piece for the building of his SPACE PROGRAM 2.0: Mars exhibition in New York City. Five years later, we needed to digitally relaunch the 2.0 shoe to ensure that only true fans (and not just sneakerheads) would have first access to purchase.

We designed a multimedia NASA-inspired command center filled with interactive zines, videos, games, and user-generated content. A quiz about Tom Sachs was implemented wherein a user could get a chance to buy the shoe by answering a series of 16 questions correctly, proving that only those of intrepid spirit and doggedness would get first access to the shoe.
