PRINT APPAREL DEVELOPMENT
As an apparel print developer at Nike, I've had the opportunity to develop all-over & engineered prints on performance-quality fabrics. I work directly with vendors & category partners to produce exceptional, innovative print techniques for Nike's key consumers & signature athletes.
Scroll down to find examples of printed products I've developed. I have worked on product from multiple categories, including Nike Basketball, Tennis and most recently Nike Kids.
KD 9 "PREMIERE" COLLECTION
IN THE MEDIA:
Nike's Fall 2016 KD 9 Collection features the KD Hyperelite Tank which displays an engineered print on the front & back panel. Precise marker layout & color execution was crucial for the success of this tank, which has sold 20,000+ units since it's launch date in July, 2016.
Play video to watch Kevin Durant sport this tank in the Nike Basketball "Zoom Everywhere" commercial, which aired during the 2016 Rio Olympics.
RIO AUTHENTIC SHORTS
The Rio Authentic short was developed to be worn on-court by the USA, Brasil & Spain Basketball Teams at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games. These shorts feature a mirrored engineered sublimation print on both front leg panels on Dri-FIT® performance-passing 100% recycled polyester. Marker efficiency & printed color accuracy were key components in the creation of these high-profile shorts.
PRINTED BASKETBALL APPAREL PRODUCTS
2017 AUSTRALIAN OPEN SERENA SLAM DRESS
Serena Williams won her 23rd Grand Slam at the 2017 Australian Open, where she wore the Nike Premier Power Dress with engineered print featured on the back bodice and skirt. The artwork was inspired by the shapes and shadows that are cast on a tennis court.
2017 US OPEN COLLECTION
The 2017 US Open Nike tennis collection featured several engineered prints. The men's Dry Advantage Polo & women's Dry Slam Tank with geometric gradient fade was carefully executed on engineered knit fabric.
The NikeCourt RF Shirt, worn on court by Roger Federer, also features a fading engineered print.
NIKECOURT PREMIERE TENNIS JACKET
The NikeCourt Premiere Jacket was developed with style & mobility in mind for on-court warm-up. This jacket, which was worn by tennis athlete Rafael "Rafa" Nadal at the 2016 US Open, features a sublimated rib-reveal gradient on double knit rib sleeves. Precise roller engraving & marker layout contributed to the aesthetic success of this pinnacle style.

NIKE GIRLS UNICORN PACK
The Nike Girls "Unicorn" Pack for Holiday '18 featured a beautiful pastel all-over print, influenced by the exuberant youthfulness of imagination. The careful execution of this print on both knit and woven base fabrics was crucial in the success of these styles.

SPECIAL PROJECT: 2016 DOERNBECHER FREESTYLE COLLECTION
Every year, Nike partners with OHSU Doernbecher Children's Hospital to create a unique collection of apparel and footwear pieces that are specially designed by a few of the hospital patients. The collection helps raise money and awareness and gives these kids a chance to design their dream outfits. Select pieces from the 2016 collection included prints that I had a hand in developing. This was such a special, heartwarming project to be a part of.
