Sabrina’s Laws of the Game

Sabrina Ionescu, basketball player of the New York Liberty, was given her own signature Nike shoe. She’s one of very few female athletes to do so. You only get a nike shoe when you’re good. So it was time to tell other people how she got there.

In Sabrina’s Laws of the Game we created 5 main laws. Each law came with a key visual and extentions that lived out in the real world and or online. 









Law 1: Be a Student of the Game
Sabrina Ionescu got her start at University of Oregon. We wanted to honor her with something at the University of Oregon.


LAW 2: PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE
Sabrina is known for her lengty and hardworking practice schedule. 


LAW 3: STAY 3 STEPS AHEAD
Sabrina is known to be crafty on the court. She can see things before anyone else can.



Law 4: Use Doubt to Your Advantage
Sabrina used to play grown-ups on the basketball court for slurpee money. So we created a custom slurpee cup that you buy at 7-11 in New York and Eugene.


Law 5: A Hooper Stays Hungry
Sabrina is the triple double queen so we made a triple double sandwich. We partnered with Katz Deli in New York to make a triple double sandwich.

Allstate

There are some people who just know. We all have that person we trust.  They know not to eat gas station sushi, they know righty means tighty and lefty mean loosey, and they also know what insurance to buy. Some people just know.

We won Allstate with this work.

Serena’s Retirement

Serena retired from playing tennis. We wanted to show that by Serena changing nothing, she changed everything. We made hoodies with our film title and helped to design shoes based on Sabrina’s ionic outfits.
