Nike Jordan Training
In 2015, Nike launched Jordan Training as part of the larger Jordan Brand. Jordan Training is a collection of products designed to help athletes beat the elements, making training possible anytime, anywhere.
Manual, a San Francisco based agency, was tasked with designing a custom typeface for the sub-brand, that felt elegant and refined, yet still embodied the core values of the Jordan Brand.
The end result is gorgeous. It's a great counter to the Jordan silhoutte and works really well over large scale over imagery (as intended). The slightly condensed form gives a sporty vibe but the thin light weight adds a modern aesthetic. The numerics also remind me of something you would see on a soccer jersey. In my opinion, that's a good thing. I wish other sports, like basketball, would take a cue instead of always relying on heavy collegiate faces.
