FreePort High School Mural

FreePort High School Mural

The Freeport High School Mural was completed on May 9th by a Maine company called Better Letter Hand Painted Signs. Tessa, the owner of BLHPS, also runs the Portland Mural Initiative, which aims to bring contemporary art into the public spaces of Portland, Maine and its surrounding areas. The track and mural were paid in part by Nike and dedicated to Joan Benoit Samuelson. Joan wont gold medal in the full marathon race at the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles, the first time the marathon was in the Olympics for women. Joan lives in Freeport, Maine and grew up in Cape Elizabeth. We were excited to partner with Tessa and her company because of their involvement in beautifying Maine with art and their community involvement.

Additionally, due to the variability of Spring weather in the northeast, it was great having her team be able to jump on and off the mural in between their other projects when the weather allowed. The school was extremely helpful with the project giving up indoor storage space for the paint and materials. During the community day on Saturday, May 5th, which Joan attended, we had about 30 community volunteers, both children and adults, come out to help paint. The mural was made as a “paint by numbers” so that any skill level could jump in to paint. The amount completed over the course of the day was staggering.

Thank you to all involved and for this great opportunity to contribute to the community.

Samsung S8 Launch @837 NYC

Samsung S8 Launch @837 NYC

With the release of the S8 and S8+, Samsung set out to “unbox your phone” – a mission statement reflected in the revolutionary redesign of their popular cellular devices. Breaking the traditional confines of the smartphone screen, Samsung’s Infinity Display served as the visual inspiration for our recent installation in Manhattan.

Described by Samsung as “beautifully curved and perfectly symmetrical,” and “pure, pristine, and uninterrupted,” we knew instantly that the S8 Infinity Display’s story would be best told through a series of our bespoke infinity mirrors and projection capabilities.

Throughout Samsung’s 837 NYC location, lightboxes and pedestals – designed and crafted by satis&fy specialists – enveloped the gear on display in a radiant, otherworldly glow. A fleet of infinity mirrors offered visitors a glance into an endless expanse of depth and light, referencing the Infinity Display’s end-to-end screen. At the installation’s core, five layered screens coupled with rear projection capabilities brought an immersive 3D illusion to life.

Air Max Day 2017@NikeTown NY

Air Max Day 2017@NikeTown NY

Inspired by the innovative and controversial “inside out” design of the Georges Pompidou Centre in Paris, the Air Max went against the grain 30 years ago, challenging the archetypes of contemporary footwear design.

On March 26th — better known to sneakerheads as “Air Max Day” — Nike kicked off a string of celebratory events, including a grandiose projection on the Centre Pompidou’s face and interactive consumer experiences in major cities including Milan, Tokyo, and Berlin. Meanwhile at NikeTown NY, the handiwork of satis&fy’s best primed the retail space for the Air family’s latest addition — the Nike Air VaporMax.

Switching gears from the “history lesson” ethos of our recent “Air Max Ultra” installation, the current “VaporMax” makeover gave rise to a polished, modern retail environment — a departure from the preceding design’s vintage aesthetic. Assembled over the course of two days with a crew of 16 satis&fy specialists, the VaporMax installation echoed the Air Max line’s enduring, inventive spirit — embracing the colors and textures that forged the Air Max of today; timeless, elegant, and always on the precipice of tomorrow.

Happy birthday, Air Max — you’ve certainly aged well.

Air Max Ultra @NikeTown NY

Air Max Ultra @NikeTown NY

In 1987, Tinker Hatfield merged avant-garde design with NASA technology to bring the Air Max to life; three-decades later, the groundbreaking athletic shoe has blossomed into an iconic symbol of street fashion.

With the annual “Air Max Day” celebration right around the corner, we joined forces with Nike once again to deliver a series of retail installations across New York in honor of the shoe’s upcoming 30th anniversary.

Inspired by the rich history and heritage surrounding the Air Max line, NikeTown NY was transformed into a dynamic cache of sneaker lore — an explosion of colors, shapes, and textures unmistakably tied to Tinker Hatfield’s iconic designs. Display cases adorning the walls functioned as both a time capsule and storybook, taking consumers on a neon-lit journey through decades of evolution and reinvention.

At the installation’s core, a glance at the latest offerings from the Air Max line: the Air Max 1 Ultra 2.0 LE and the highly-anticipated Nike Air VaporMax.

satis360: Not Your Typical Open House

Some would call it an open house — we decided to call it satis360.

Opening the doors to our new location on January 26th, we welcomed clients, vendors, family, friends, and the community to a showcase of the innovative creations that define our brand. This wasn’t simply an open house; it was an experiential journey — a hands-on soiree that invited guests to dive headfirst into the creative visions that drive us.

Keeping true to the event’s name, our room-by-room exhibition highlighted our team’s wide spectrum of in-house capabilities and expertise — jam-packed with leading-edge technical and scenic production installations.

Highlights included mockup retail spaces, complete with augmented reality delivered via iPad, Planar transparent touchscreen integration, and VR technology; a selection of our finest immersive lighting and LED technology — including the satis&fy/LG Intellifridge, 8K mosaic monitors, LG Ultra-Stretch and Microsoft Kinect Interactive screens, in-house crafted infinity mirrors, and futuristic LED fabric; a miniature recreation of our groundbreaking 4k projection mapping in Karben, Germany; and various examples our in-house vinyl capabilities, CNC production, and scenic expertise. And we can’t forget to mention the crowd favorite — a bespoke mini-golf course, complete with motion sensing LED technology.

We can’t express our gratitude enough to everyone who dropped by to spend the afternoon with us — and to the crew, partners, and visionaries who made this event a success. Without you, it simply wouldn’t have been possible.

Thank you for making it a day to remember. We had a blast.

Space Jam: 20th Anniversary

Space Jam: 20th Anniversary

Always defy, never comply. This is the foundation of Jordan’s legacy.

In 1996, Michael Jordan teamed up with an unlikely cast of animated heroes to champion the intergalactic basketball game of a lifetime, all while creating an iconic, box-office hit in the process. To many, Space Jam isn’t just a basketball film, it’s a name synonymous with nostalgia – and Nike’s latest series of retail installations in New York, Chicago, and San Francisco undoubtedly emanated nostalgia.

If there was ever a doubt, the magnificently suspended, glowing 15’x15’ Jumpman logo above NikeTown NY’s atrium makes it clear: you’re in Jordan’s territory now. Below, otherworldly display pedestals – comprised of 3D moonrock inserts, acrylic bases, and impeccable lighting – pay homage to the film’s galactic atmosphere. The already impressive NikeTown NY LED wall was pushed to its limits, expanded and primed to accommodate Space Jam and Jordan-branded video content.

Outfitted with a pair of light boxes, flanking a striking infinity-mirror display (compliments of our R&D team’s recent efforts), the building’s East Pavilion showcases authentic pieces of Space Jam lore and the current product line offered in celebration of the film’s 20th anniversary. In the building’s exterior displays, wheat pasted graphics frame both an illuminated backboard and flawlessly fabricated moon.

Cheers to 20 years, Space Jam. Thanks for having us on board.
