Ricky Engelberg, Nike’s digital director for Asia Pacific, sums up the theme of these spots real nice: “The ‘be transformed’ initiative celebrates the revolution across all aspects of women’s lives. Nike aims to inspire them to take control of their own personal development and understand the value in training.”
The entire “Be Transformed” campaign was developed at AKQA, San Francisco, by creative director Neil Robinson, associate creative director Steve Clements, art directors Chantal Mora, Ian Aldous, Jimmy Soat, senior copywriter Bob Hall, copywriters Ellen Karas, Stephanie Kodeck, executive producers Mazen Haddad and Nancy Cardillo.
Animation for Jump Rope was developed at Zoink Animation, Gotenborg, Sweden, by lead animator Klaus Lyngeled and live action producer Shannon Lords, with editor Bob Mori, post production supervisor Paul Schneider, executive producer Mary Knox and head of production John Cline.
