This project involved creating a self-promotional item, alongside a brand refresh for myself. Truth be told, I think I’m my worst client. I’ve always been typically British and felt slightly uncomfortable at the prospect of blowing my own trumpet – so to speak. But here I am. It was time to practice what I preach. After dancing unsuccessfully with a few concepts involving a rock, and “making a splash” – (see below)
I started to think back to the time I endured (sorry, spent) in Sales. I can vividly remember the old phrase of “getting your foot in the door”. So I started looking at how I could work this into a concept. Foot v1 below:
It only seemed natural to include a foot long promotional ruler too. Whilst this was fun, I couldn’t help think there could be something slightly disturbing about receiving a foot in the post. Here is where the final concept and the copy line “Let me put myself in your shoes” came to light. I made the final boot using a 3D Pen. As it was my first time using a 3D Pen I needed a few attempts before I could comfortably plough ahead with this strategy. See below my boot being traced with 3D Filament, click on the image to view the full development document.
