An amazing integration of multiple digital touchpoints that empowers creativity and gives control to its audience while looking beyond the browser.” — Michael Lebowitz P R E M I U M S U B S C R I B E R C O N T E N T Overview: In a notable reversal, NikeiD Studio takes the highly-successful NikeiD online experience, that enables customers to design and customize Nike shoes and products, and translates it for Niketown stores in New York and London. The look-and-feel is high-end boutique with personal design consultants who help customers create perfect products with design options and exclusive materials not available online. Interactive tools and digital displays immerse the customers in the brand and bring the virtual experience to life, and a credit-card-like take!away, featuring a high-resolution image of their design and details of the colors and materials, helps them to bide the time between designing and receiving the products.

For instance, we decided to create a touchscreen experience; it was an impressive obstacle. It needed to work through tinted, coated, 1.5 inch-thick bulletproof glass, yet feel as immediate as an iPhone in your hand. “We found a software-controlled capacitive foil that can sense touch through more than an inch of glass. We pains!takingly put up the film only to discover that it wouldn’t calibrate properly. After getting a very precise laser guide to measure the glass, we realized it was nearly ! inch over tolerance. The vendor flew out to help set it up and, after carefully grounding the device and fine-tuning the sensitivity, the screen reacted to touch as if the glass weren’t there at all. “The window touchscreens highlighted the online community of users, featuring designs created in real- time from around the world, along with information on when and where they were designed.
