A Thought On: Storytelling in the CLOT X Terracotta Jordan 13s REVIEW – The Power of Stories and the quality of creativity

We go again,

Just saw these, thought they were amazing and deeped the concept and just loved it design application aside this is a real good concept with storytelling in pictures giving off a quality feel. If the oldest recorded history had sneakers they’d wear Jordan’s 😂😂, I’m literally laughing.

But that’s joy, me when I was 8-15 the history buff that I was this would have added to my story of where I am now. – In design, telling great stories; creating exceptional product – my 12 year old self would have loved the socks off of this Jordan, would have inevitably be the Jordan that would be my first.

Why do I say all of this because I’m my mo sneakers no stories I spoke greatly about the lack of stories and how that impacts the sale of sneakers, telling great stories (like songs) induces great ideas in young minds worthy of exploring. Once more the quality of the product almost comes secondary to the story told and association it holds. I’m in love with ancient history and things told before records were kept, have been enamoured with it for decades. Me as a kid who loved the Mummy films and knew much about the terracotta warriors would be immediately taken at 8 and now in my 20’s. Why? Because the weight of the association it holds is heavy and if in any form I can be part of that story I will.

This is a call to great designers and storytellers to work hand in hand on briefs to create product that speak to the imagination of the youth and adults. I right now am digging deep to find an outfit worthy of rocking the Terracotta 13’s all because of the story and nary because of the design.

Back to School

I have decided that I will be going back to uni to finish off my BA and earn a useless degree 2018 is the year I could easily set up a 2017 start and might do. However, in understanding, myself and how taxing the year back is going to be I’m going to have to build a fortitude to the fuckery. As well as the fact I would like a fully packed portfolio of work that I have delivered from the experience I gathered in the three years out of university I need to gather funds, From multiple sources wherever they may be they need to come in hoards.

As someone who will be going as a mature student in the hopes of finishing early, I have to bolster my platform to the standard of a professional. Hoping my quality will shine over these young whipper snappers that will be young hungry and after my neck in terms of wanting to prove themselves. Being that guy is key if not it just makes my stay a little bit more taxing. Sorry to be weird but I’m going to be that old guy in class that should have finished years ago. Well, it is not weird, it’s the darn truth but God help me if I don’t punch these guys in the mouth with my technical ability.

Finishing the projects I have set for myself is key! As an art student most would not understand that pressure till you’re in the thick of it. but doing professional standard projects from start to completion is a hard thing to do for those that haven’t been involved in a high-pressure setting.

This is where I say my blog will be dedicated to showing off the arts in all forms. The subject matter along with my ability to articulate is something I will like to have grown hand in hand. Just to keep everything blessed and not lose anything I’ve got. I hope you wish me luck in my endeavor to get more involved with my people and pray for someone who never prays for themselves.

 

Until the next blog, this has been
