Last July, I was chosen and got on board with my long time friend and collaborator Jon Herrera who told me that illest is venturing to the web 3.0/ NFT project and it will be piloted here in the Philippines. I had observed a lot of brands, not just in street wear, are making their way to the web 3.0
The Project: “illest Motorverse” is the Web 3.0 Program for Car Culture Motorheads and community.
The keyword for me that made me jump into the project is “Community” in which I’m currently building alongside Jon and our talented pool of collaborators and creators. My main goal is to build an inclusive and collaborative community of not just fans of the automotive scene, but all the things illest represents. thru events, product, Audio and Video Media, Music, Sports and the list goes on.
As the Creative Director of the “illest Motorverse”, I tapped the community frontrunners to help me build a visual experience in the URL then translate them in the IRL (In Real Life) thru our Cars and Coffee events on the weekends and upcoming events to inject real life energy.
