30 Years of Nike Air Max

Last Friday Richard Hawkings, a great motion designer that works with me at Google shared with me this amazing work done for the campaign to celebrate the 30 years of Nike's iconic Air Max. The work was done by ManvsMachine, a design & motion studio from London, UK. The work is so good that I asked myself what was 3D and what was real due to the quality of the texture maps. They were kind enough to share a little making of and we had to share it here with you. ManvsMachine is a multi D&AD and Cannes Gold Lion award winning design and motion studio.

Description Inspired by the book "Rendezvous with Rama" of Arthur C. Clarke, our computer generated astronaut meets the world's ending in a highly detailed vortex.
