Create Nike’s new and future workplace environments across the world. Working with Nike’s internal design team and specialized vendors, our studios are bringing the Nike brand to life through graphic systems, material language and interior space design.
As both design and brand partner, our role has been to lead the creative process with Nike, understand country-specific branding and workspace requirements to help guide the design process and creation of production artwork for each region. A comprehensive and seamless vision integrates local and brand stories in a seamless design.
To date, Downstream has delivered dozens of projects under the direction of WD+C leadership across three continents. Influenced by insights from Nike’s regional offices, our team has partnered with architects, artists, and designers to weave local sport and design culture into Nike workplaces around the world.
