A Look at Nike’s Vibrant History of Prints and Patterns

In a recent essay published by Nike, the sportswear behemoth offers a comprehensive history of the brand’s prints and patterns. In its opening remarks the exposé describes chromology, which is the psychology of color that explores how hues impact emotion. From this simple concept is derived an entire label’s ethos that has famously integrated high performance attire with visually striking designs. Tracing back to the founding of its first in-house Art Department in 1983, Nike has since fused this emotive-aesthetic equation into its products via prints and patterns on apparel. Nike’s first all-over prints were produced on running attire and arrived in 1985 in the form of a pink, white and red pattern inspired by shoe outsoles, and another with gold barbells on a black background.
Inspired by external influences such as cultural trends, historical references, global sporting events and more, print designers continued to collaborate closely with the company’s apparel and footwear designers. Even as the brand moved into the ’90s, each and every design was still meticulously rendered. After the introduction of that era’s digital prints, made possible with the invention of copy machines, Nike designers were still manipulating graphics and prints by hand. As a result, the patterns of the early ’90s showcase an organic, hand-drawn quality despite the move towards technological techniques. The uniqueness of the designs were further underscored by the limited runs that often capped at approximately 100 per season. Even with today’s rapid development of textile advancements, the iconic brand continues to push boundaries and to redefine all expectations. You can head over to read the full article on Nike News.

Apple Releases the Smart Battery Case for iPhone

Apple has just announced its initial venture into the business of portable batteries in the form of the iPhone 6s Smart Battery Case. As the name suggests, the case is designed to be used on the iPhone 6s and the 6, prolonging their often deplorable battery life to that of the iPhone 6s Plus. Here, Apple has chosen to ditch the conventional two-piece battery case design for a flexible one-piece silicon case that allows ease of removal while providing a grippy surface and shock absorption. A microfiber inner lining also nestles your iPhone without fear of scratching the surface. The battery itself gives the iPhone 6s an additional 25 hours of talk time, 18 hours of LTE web browsing, and 20 hours of HD video playback. The Smart Battery Case will also display its remaining battery percentage on the lock screen as well as in the Notification Center. Compatible with Lightning cables, the Smart Battery Case is available from today in black and white colorways, online and in-store for $99 USD.
