Bringing Custom Air Max Designs to Life with AR

AKQA’s new project for Nike Japan invites Air Max fans to put their own spin on the iconic product, with an AR-enabled zine that allows them to create and edit custom 3D designs in real time.

The mixed reality experience is a published work of fans’ stories and interviews by influencers, with a twist. Throughout the printed zine, readers discover Air Max inspired creativity, plus black-and-white illustrations. They scan the blank shoes with a smartphone to generate a floating AR model. As the shoe is coloured in on the page, the 3D model changes to reflect the creation. Once finished an animation of the design can be shared to social channels.

One thousand copies of the 56-page limited-edition zine were distributed to Nike stores across Japan as a giveaway. The colouring book is a personalised experience that takes customisation to a whole new level.
