The Onitsuka Tiger mosaic shoe

March 26, 2007 at 9:17 by Martina Comments

Onitsuka Tiger has recently launched a weird site, which displays a mosaic shoe made of tiny images and image links to something Japanese on the web today. By clicking on tiles, visitors are then taken to one of the 150 Japan related websites crawled by the site spider. The links are updated every hour, and compose everytime a different shoe model which changes in the color palette according to the content linked.
It’s not Made in Japan, but it’s Made “of” Japan. Good concept (by StrawberryFrog), extremely simple and nicely developed by the Dutch agency Woodend. I like the site because it’s somehow useful, and allows visitors to discover new, hidden, websites Japanese related. Of course, it’s also a smart way for Onitsuka Tiger to “cash” on user-generated content without much of an effort…
