Überpong “Kawaii” Paddle

Brief

Designs must include either a table tennis table, bat or ball somewhere in the scene. They should be in a Tokidoki/Kidrobot style, have a fun feel, and be colourful.

I was approached by David Lowe, the Founder of Überpong, among artists and designers such as Mart Biemans, Viktor Hertz, Hannah Adamaszek, Sophie Roach and Andreas Preis to create a design for a ‘Designer’ paddle for his Kickstarter campaign.

Initially I experimented with some central character designs but ultimately decided to create some Tokidoki inspired characters from various coloured paddles and a ball that could be patterned across the face of the paddle.
