ADIZERO XVI

Brand Design

Since 2015, Pascher+Heinz supports adidas Swim with concepts and implementations of various product campaigns. The adizero XVI professional product range was the first collaboration including a holistic campaign concept targeted at the 2016 Olympics. The innovative discipline-specific adizero XVI product range for women and men ensures better performance by supporting the Kinetic Chain: X-Tra Fit > X-Tra Flow > X-Tra Speed.

Visual Identity

An individual visual identity for the adizero XVI had to be developed as an integral part of the overarching adidas visual identity. The X-Stripes, the successors to the Kinetic Chain, are an integral part of the adizero XVI’s visual identity.
