The Nike Locker Room, a projected created by digital marketing Razorfish Hong Kong, won the Global Smartie Award (Mobile Website) in New York.
“Nike Locker Room was an ingenious, creative solution to a unique business problem, sneaker speculators, which transformed the Nike retail business and gave power back to Nike brand fans,” said Daniel Bonner, Razorfish Global Chief Creative Officer, who accepted the award in New York City on behalf of the team.
