Description: Fictional logo development for an Adidas-themed résumé. This is in no way affiliated with Adidas. A while back, Adidas Originals had an open Design Director position in their Portland HQ, and, being a lover of the brand, I decided to apply. To demonstrate not only my skills as a graphic designer, but also my knowledge and respect for the adidas brand and its legacy, I designed a self-promo booklet (a highly-conceptual adaptation of my current résumé) that is aesthetically inspired by adidas Originals marketing brochures. The booklet chronicles the accomplishments of a fictional alter-ego, Coach Ramirez — an adidas track suit wearing, afro'd, mustachioed designer — and is written as if he's actually the Design Director at adidas Originals. Click here to view my Flickr stream for full design rationale and additional images. Sadly, I didn't get the job, because I lacked the appropriate textile design experience :/

Thanks for the nice comment Roko! Yeah, those adidas cookies were yummy, but MESSY. I didn't use the right type of icing (I used regular cake icing %u2014 which doesn't harden like cookie icing should), so at the end of the shoot, I had blue dye all over my hands. But the cookies were good, so I was able to overlook the fact that it looked like I gave a handy to Papa Smurf.
