Nike Women Nicola Sanders – Here I Am

Nike has launched a series of animated online ads that tell the story of the challenges faced by athletes such as tennis star Maria Sharapova and runner Nicola Sanders, as part of a pan-European campaign to inspire young women.


The five films, developed by Wieden & Kennedy Amsterdam, form part of a wider multimedia campaign which includes a coffee table book, exhibitions at flagship Nike stores, digital advertising and posters.

Nike’s ads, which use the strapline “Here I Am”, use different styles of animation to tell the story of the individual journeys the five women have made to become top athletes.
