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.

‘The Brazilian Dream’ is Online

The Brazilian Dream (O Sonho Brasileiro) is the title of an extensive, qualitative study of young Brazilians. The objective for this study is to understand the generation of 18-24 year olds, including its values, dreams, and desires. This generation is the first to grow up in a hyper-connected world, and in a period of significant domestic economic growth.

The study is based on 1,200 interviews from across the entire country and from all social groups. I contributed to the project with visual ethnography from São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Recife and Porto Alegre. A central part of the commission was a documentation of 25 case-studies. Here, we followed respondents over time, and documented their lives in their own environments, including at home and with their families. The case-studies we selected are all actively engaged in contributing to society in a positive way.
