Here’s a project I (Tom Lane – aka Ginger Monkey) created for the good folks at AIR JORDAN. Last summer the team asked whether I would design the packaging artwork for a new limited edition ‘Year of the Dragon’ Air Jordan shoe. What started out as a packaging job then snowballed after the first round of visuals. Eventually my work got incorporated into the shoe design, bag, some apparel, and a few more things to come.
I was challenged with creating a system to the design so that it could adapt to different size boxes and be rejigged by the Air Jordan designers. The final box size was yet to be fully determined so I needed to create artwork that could expand in width and height. All the elements therefore had to be individual so they could be shifted around without destroying the overall effect.
This was a really enjoyable project and working with the team has been one of my favourite collaborative experiences. From the get go I was given the freedom and trust to develop the work as I saw it and the input they gave me was always incredibly constructive and respectable. I’m told everyone is really over the moon with the results.
Some pictures of the 13Electric performance in Wuhan with Dj MauMau on Friday. It was in a opened area, with palm-trees and light cubes and spheres. Weather was perfect beers and crepes apparently also. Thanks to the people who made it happen, my man Andy from Dabaoge who came from beijing & Fabien Seguin for the pictures. Was a cool evening !

I was asked by a friend of mine to perform for the French consulate in Wuhan, China.
Yes, it’s on Friday the 13th !
I was in charge of the communication so here’s the black and white, monogramed, first version of Vendredi 13. Below the colored, final version of the flyer.
I didn’t do any flyer design for a long time, i have to admit that it was quite fun. Dealing with colors is something i’m not used to anymore, but i enjoyed and quite like the result.
Dj MauMau will be playing some cool tracks while i m painting.
Feel free to come by if you’re around !
