KEN GRIFFEY TRIBUTE WALL FOR NIKE
Executive Producer: ACME SCENIC & DISPLAY
Beaverton, OR 2015
Nike asked me to help them value engineer this project with a challenging budget. Overcoming budgetary challenges shows superiority over your competitors. The project was nearly dead in the water until a fortuitous dream by the manager at Louisville Slugger who we worked with. In his sleep came the epiphany of how to use their machinery to produce bats with the proper miter. My costs for the custom fabrication of the project lowered, and the project commenced.
The wall symbolizes every home run that KG hit, and each bat is laser engraved with the date and number of the 600+ career home runs he hit. The 10 Golden Gloves signify KG’s winning of those awards.
