What is the history of the Nike brand?
The company’s original name was “Blue Ribbon Sports” and it was founded on the 25th of January, 1964. “Blue Ribbon Sports” was founded by a track athlete from the University of Oregon, Phil Knight, and his coach Bill Bowerman. It first started as a distributor for a Japanese shoe maker brand. The company was quite successful until they decided to start making their own shoes. They renamed their brand Nike, after the Greek goddess of victory, and they started producing their own shoes in 1971. In 1974 they trademarked the “Swoosh” logo, created by graphic designer Carolyn Davidson. Nowadays, this is the most recognizable logo in the world and it is worth around 26$ billion.
