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. I always love these challenges because overcoming budgetary challenges discreetly shows your superiority over your competitors. I t was not easy however the project was nearly dead in the water until the manager at Louisville Slugger that we worked with woke from his sleep with an epiphany as to how they could use their machinery to produce the bats with the proper miter lessening the custom fabrication time by my team..
I wish I was designing this with my parametric design skills I have today as it would be amazing to get really technical with a piece like this.
The wall symbolizes every home run that KG hit and each bat is laser engraved with the date of the 600+ career home runs he hit. The 10 Golden gloves signify KG’s winning of those awards.
