D Rose Jumpstore

Award: Graphite Pencil

Graphite Pencil / Outdoor Advertising / Ambient / 2014

With just two hours to turn NBA all-star Derrick Rose into an urban icon for kids on London’s council estates, we turned Hackney's most rundown community centre into the 'D Rose Jump Store' – a pop-up shop they couldn't ignore. Filled with hundreds of free basketball shoes placed on shelves 10 ft high, it gave kids a chance to show themselves, and the world, how talented they might be at a game many had never played. The event, promoted through online films and hyper-local posters, offered a role model to young people more used to being demonised by society, giving them the opportunity to become icons themselves.
