Back in 2018, H+ Creative artist Nate Rodriguez-Vera created designs for Nike Sportswear. While these designs were never printed on apparel, we loved his clean, stoic approach. Rodriguez-Vera and Nike have collaborated on a few projects in the past and these designs continue to represent the graphic elements found in both the artist and brands work.
Nate’s work cycles through a handful of recurring themes, ranging from vast, mystical desert landscapes, to retro-futuristic deco and architecture, to 80s/90s pop culture, to minimalist geometric abstractions - all glued together into a cohesive body of work by a unique, surrealist, dreamy aesthetic. Seen here, his aesthetic comes across as powerful and strong - true to the Nike brand.
