Be Legendary. Nike Branding Concept for Tokyo 2020

Daniele Caruso is a freelance illustrator based in Swindon, United Kingdom. He is working mainly in illustration, graphic design and branding. We are taking a look at his branding concept for Nike: Be Legendary, for the upcoming and anticipated Tokyo 2020. With the tagline "legendary", Daniele included mythological creatures to create an artistic atmosphere alongside with the colour palette that totally reminds me of Dotonbori (the bright heart) from Osaka, Japan. What do you think? Would you like this kind of visual approach if it was from Nike. More Links danielecaruso.com Behance

Exploring teamLab Borderless: a digital art museum in Tokyo, Japan

Exploring teamLab Borderless: a digital art museum in Tokyo, Japan

I am personally quite excited to share this exhibition currently happening right now at the Mori Building, more precisely in Roppongi, Minato. In this exhibit and as I quote: "MORI Building DIGITAL ART MUSEUM: teamLab Borderless present a borderless world that visitors can explore freely without following routes". Just to give an idea, you will experience about 50 interactive artworks, some completely new, in a huge 10,000 sqm area with five zones. The interactive artworks have no borders separating them from the other works. Some extend beyond their installation rooms and into the corridors, some overlap with other works and some even fuse with other works. Since there are no boundaries, the immersive works keep the boundaries between people in a state of continuous flux. Visitors physically enter and explore the works as well as experience interactions with other visitors. The result is a totally new kind of interactive digital art experience the likes of which cannot be found anywhere else in the world.
