Last year, I had the chance to work on a very cool project commissioned by Nike USA. The idea, art directed by Colin Strandberg, was to highlight some of Nike’s most significant moments within the Olympics most recent history as well as to create some generic retro-looking Olympic graphics. Three specific iconic moments were chosen. #1, the famous billboard Nike put up in LA featuring Carl Lewis right before the Olympics began in 1984. #2, the golden Nike shoes Michael Johnson wore when he broke the world record in Atlanta 1996, and #3, the unforgettable Dream Team, with Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, Scottie Pippen, Magic Johnson, Karl Malone, Pat Ewing and so many more, in the Barcelona Olympics of 1992.
