FILA 'First Step'


Recent, Animation

Let’s start with a nod to FILA’s contribution to the game of basketball and tip a glass to our inner NBA nerd. We know the history, we live the game and we were fired up when the opportunity arose to collaborate with FILA and Vayner Media in celebration of Grant Hill’s Hall of Fame career. His storied relationship with the FILA brand, his never say die mentality and the gifts that he brought to the Association are all the stuff of legends. 

We are proud to have worked with FILA and Vayner Media to help create a visual tapestry as rich as the man’s contributions to the game. From his explosive first step to every energetic moment along his continually evolving career gave us the canvas to capture the greatness of #33 and his vibrant history as one of basketball’s, and FILA’s, brightest superstars.
