Personal Project “Month of Rebounds”

Take care! A lot of gifs.

Last times I was focused more on design for augmented and virtual realities, on the full-time job I’m dealing mostly with managing and user experience. After working on some AR demos that involved UI design, I started realizing that my skills are not getting better. Also sometimes by searching for inspiration on Dribbble, I was noticing styles that I would like to try, but it was clear that I will never have a chance to try all of them.

To pump my craft and test as much as possible design solutions I decided to make “Month of Rebounds.” From today, every lunch during next 31 days I’ll choose one shot, which style is new for me. I will create rebound by trying to repeat, reconsider or rethink it’s style. I’ll do my best for placing me out of my comfort zone and learn as much as possible new approaches.

Combining sneakers and Pantone colors is the great idea of Mega Putri Caesaria. Inspired by another project sneakAR by Jan Crisologo I decided to make the concept that shows real size Air Max sneakers in different PANTONE colors.
