Nike Football Culture in Latin America

We’ve completed the ethnographic research work for Nike and the result is a beautiful, 400-page book on football culture in Latin America. The research is in large part based upon visual ethnography by Jacob Langvad Nilsson. The book is a study of football culture among teens in Brazil, Argentina, and Mexico. The research sought to capture how football as a sport greatly influence the daily lives of youngsters in both urban and rural settings, and helped the client strengthen its understanding of and relationship with its consumers.
