Kicks + start (kickstart)

I designed this poster for an art show that Lakai Footwear was hosting. The show was called Kickstart (kicks + art), and involved a number of artists painting onto blank Lakai shoes and loafers. Because the shoes in this show were a blank canvas for the artists I tried to create a poster that put emphasis on the shoes, but also reflected that fact that they were to be used as part of the art. In doing so I illustrated the shoes so that they looked like a colour by number, and then used a rough canvas texture in the background. All of the information about the show was placed in shoe boxes so as to keep the focus on footwear.
