It’s been awhile since I posted a design of mine, so here is the latest creation. Hip Hop artist Jay Wise is a “sneakerhead”, he literally has two closet full of sneakers and he wanted his name created in shoelaces. I originally took a pair of shoelaces and tried creating his name with them. I wanted to get the shapes, take a picture, and work on it on the computer. Well, the shoelaces did not go as planned and were quite difficult to form a letter, although I was able to create a mean “O”, but there’s no “O” in Jay Wise. I decided that sketching would obviously work best, so I sketched it out and finally came up with one I liked.
*Serious inquiries only if you are interested in having me design a sneaker shoelace design
The design was only going to work in script, but I wanted it to be fun and wavy. I felt I was able to achieve that when I worked on it in Illustrator. I like the text by itself, but felt it needed an outline, which I feel is better. Lucky for me, Jay loved them both, so they’ll be used in designs for him.
