adidas Originals: #TLKS


︎︎︎FA2017 c/o Annex88 | ︎Social Media Content, FB Messenger Chatbot, & Experiential Design 


The first ever digitally-sourced sneaker panel series featuring original creators at the forefront of innovation, creative, and performance — with conversation fueled by adidas Originals audience via Facebook messenger chatbot.




A live event to celebrate the rebirth of EQT

adidas Originals wanted to mark the EQT, a popular technical performance sneaker, as a streetwear statement piece in the United States. During the globally-renowned Miami Art Week, we were tasked to promote adidas’ first inaugural panel series.

As their Social AOR, I helped Annex88 took over @adidasoriginals Instagram with cryptic animations revealing: 
(1) the Event and the speakers streamed on Facebook Live
(2) the Adidas Chatbot where people can cop limited edition white #EQTs.

The Event

The event celebrated the brand’s EQT shoe, and brought together artist Ben Jones, model and activist Adwoa Aboah, and artist and G.O.O.D. Music president Pusha T for a panel discussion. Guests gathered at the Hilario Candela-designed Miami Marine Stadium, and enjoyed a special performance from Pusha T after the conversation.
