This project shows every Air Jordan 1 high-top model released from 1985–2015. After creating an illustration for my friend James Boughton, I was inspired to continue my drawings and create a series of stylised illustrations using graphic and minimalistic shapes to show every colourway of the high-top model of the shoe that has been released up to the end of 2015 (that I could find!).

The resulting outcome was a series of posters; one showing all 115 colourways in a single poster (becoming more like an infographic), and then a 4-part series showing the illustrations in larger detail. Each poster lists the shoe models in chronological release date order.
