Stephen Cheetham: Sneaker Boxes

Sneaker_Boxes_1-516x391

 

Following on from his Nike Decade sneaker artworks, illustrator Stephen Cheetham has turned his attention to another important part of any sneaker collection – the sneaker box…

After some initial research and image searching, Cheetham decided upon a collection of boxes from four of the largest sneaker brands – Nike, adidas, Vans and Converse. Each print shows a collection of boxes from the early days of the brand, through to the more modern boxes that are used today – all stacked as they would be in many a sneaker collectors bedroom.

‘For me it’s very interesting to see how a brand has evolved over the years,’ explains Cheetham, ‘and the box is a key indicator of this evolution. The logos, the colours and the box construction all communicate different aspects of the brand. I wanted to show the box as a product in it’s own right, away from the sneakers that it houses.’

All four Sneaker Boxes prints by Stephen Cheetham are available to purchase online (in a variety of sizes) from the excellent Print Process website now

Stephen Cheetham & Nike Sneakers of the Decades

Designer, artist and illustrator Stephen Cheetham worked on a self-initiated project these last weeks. He expressed his love for sneakers, and specifically Nike sneakers, with a new series of prints. The series documents his favorite Nike sneakers from the past four decades. Due to layout and continuity, the designer limited himself to 8 sneakers per decade, which is of course not an easy choice to make. Check out the full interview here
