The Challenge

Establish the newest iteration of Donovan Mitchell's signature sneaker, the D.O.N. Issue #4, as the lightest and most advanced footwear in the market.

The Insight

The D.O.N. Issue #4 builds off of Donovan Mitchell’s ability to unleash his speed and athleticism. From top to bottom, every element of the shoe is built for speed to create a new platform for Donovan and our consumers to experience the future of fast.

Leverage the narrative around Donovan Mitchell's on-court attributes and share the performance benefits of the D.O.N. Issue #4 by presenting a story showcasing the speed offerings of the footwear.


For retail and digital touchpoints, we developed a concept around the "Future of Fast," where the D.O.N. Issue #4 is presented as a creation borne in a laboratory-like setting where the science of speed is infused into the shoes. The abstracted space also evoked Donovan Mitchell's unique speed and quickness, forming a connection between the product offering and the athlete who inspired it.
