Three Local Artists.
Three Aldo Locations.
We partnered with three local artists to hand-paint styles of footwear that reflected each artist's interpretation of NYC's unique neighbourhoods.
Working from an attention-grabbing ‘art’ truck, each artist customized a limited collection of styles per event based on a first come, first serve basis. The events were anchored with local catering and a live DJ to create a festive/party atmosphere.
This project was conceptualized and executed in under a month as an accelerated test and learn to serve memorable experiences for customers. It required strong teamwork and exceptional attention to detail, pulling from the expertise of all.
Now considered as a cornerstone project, it was replicated globally.
These events were focused on creating a memorable connection with the brand, while driving awareness.
To acheive this, all details were carefully curated and crafted: from the artists selected to the mimalistic design system.
