8Bit Tetris Shoes

The new assignment I'm working on at Style Design College is creating a brand and using it to design a pair of shoes, while staying true to the brands origin, idea and audience.

I chose 8Bit as my label which gives me a broad spectrum to utilize. The flat colours and pixeled look of the images give off a nostalgic feel from the retro games of past years. Using Tetris as my design was a good choice because I was able to use a simple pattern, which has great impact.
The laces which I just luckily happened to have lying around at home, conform to the idea of the brand.

The only down-side to my shoes, is that they're one size too big for me. :(
