Over the last few months, we have teamed up with an incredible group of student designers at Parsons School of Design to produce visual content that tells the story of our boots: the President, Captain, and Diplomat. The studio class is led by our friend and advisor Michael Robinson, who also designed our logo with us. It was an incredible experience to work with such a talented and creative class of designers. Below is a sample of the work that we created.

What inspired your Thursday project?

I was inspired to create images that, even just through product photography (with no people, no props), could capture very concrete, tactile elements of the boots in a dreamy, nostalgic way. The abstraction and surreal angles in some of the shots create a sense of intrigue and nuance that hadn’t yet been explored for these relatively straightforward products, and ultimately feel soft yet modern.

What was the most difficult aspect of the project?

I’d have to say sorting out the logistics of the photoshoot itself. They were so many components involved! I had two pairs of Thursday boots to work with, Dominique and his team to manage, 5 looks to photograph, and several apt photosets to create. Phew! It was definitely a team effort.

What do you want to do after you graduate?

Go on vacation? Just kidding! (Kind of.) I am a graphic designer at NYU, enrolled in the Graphic Design AAS program. I attend courses in the evenings. My plan is to keep appreciating each day that I get to go to work and design stuff.

What inspired your Thursday project?

My project was inspired by the nostalgia I still have for the Texas outdoors. The boots for me evoked a strong feeling of growing up surrounded by nature. I have memories of building relationships with my friends while drinking beer at a natural spring. The feeling of finding a secret pathway amongst the trees, of climbing rocks in the sun, of being tipsy and gathering the courage to jump 20 feet into the water. I saw the boots there, and that’s what inspired me.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
