Logo design and art direction for the new visual identity of the world's leading outdoor brand, in collaboration with David Benedek, Ricardo Ferrol and the team at Salomon in Annecy, France.
The rebranding made its debut at the Olympics Winter Games in Beijing 2022 with the Blue Fire Collection for all athletes. Big thanks to David Farcot and the whole team at Salomon.

The redesigned wordmark is a respectful nod to both the heritage 80's logo and Neville Brody's 90's graphic work for Salomon. Carefully crafted towards future-proof impact and maximum precision, the new identity is a workhorse that builds a base for all sub-brands such as Salomon Advanced and S/Lab for which Hugo designed new logos as well.
I’m honored and humbled to have been given the trust to rethink and redesign one of my favorite brands.

Concept and design development for a Berlin themed Nike Air Max. I was approached by Nike a shoe concept based on the question: What makes Berlin truly unique to you?
Lecture and workshop session for an amazing group of young creatives to talk about the concept, storytelling and realisation the AM 180 BLN for NIKE.

“The Air Max 180 BLN is a celebration of Berlin’s unique nightlife and music culture, a constant reminder of the rhythm of progress. Its neon elements reference the reverberating rays of light synonymous with club life, and juxtapose those against a gray upper reminiscent of Berlin’s brutalist architecture.”
