Once vivid became NIKE’s “web architect of record,” we created a series of special sites for them. The first site we helped produce was a quick documentary for the 1997 Baseball Spring Training in Tampa, FL. was an authentic site about the excitement and joy of baseball as seen through the real fans and their personal experiences. NIKE sponsored a lot of activities with kids and we wanted to help make that special as well. It was never meant to promote products. Instead, it emphasized the fans, players, and coaches as opposed to the scores. The last panel represents the many “playing cards” developed for the kids who participated in the training clinics.
