Design
Where form meets function

The Nike Air Presto has long been famed for its flexibility and elasticity, and in recognition of this distinct feature, UK-based graphic designer Chris Labrooy has taken the silhouette and given it his own artistic twist.

Inspired by the current pop trend of emojis, Labrooy’s newest work takes the most distinct elements of the Prestos and uses them to create clean visualizations of the most famous emojis. One standout piece is the one shaped with a blue Presto as a base, using its midsole and outsole grip as teeth.

Check out all the works in the gallery above, and for more from Chris Labrooy, check out his most recent project on auto elasticity.
