Nike asked us to reimagine the branding for Nike Cross Country. Each year 20 high schools across the country compete in the Nike Cross Country Nationals, Nike Cross Country Regionals, and the Oregon and Washington Boarder Clash.
We were asked to create an evergreen g system—our response was a set of patterns, a grid structure for these patterns to live in, and a bold type treatment to compliment the patterns and photography. We wanted Nike XC to feel energetic, inspirational and most of all, bad ass! Our patterns, the way the grid structure was used, layout of each piece, and how we used the typography were all rooted in supporting these kids to compete with confidence.
