This website supports Kabam's mobile adventure game featuring heroes and villains from the Marvel comic universe.

Air Jordan AJXX8
Fall 2012 | Website

Air Jordan AJXX8

For the twenty-eighth edition of Nike's Air Jordan shoes, we built a website that counted down the days to the product launch with a campaign called "28 Days of Flight". The website featured each Air Jordan release over each passing day until the final launch date. We featured Instagram photos with the campaign's hashtags and showcased famous rappers who submitted original Jordan-themeed songs for the occasion. Users could then submit new rhymes and verses to the tracks via SoundCloud, which later could appear alongside the original songs with enough of a popular vote.
