The connection between the Greek god of victory and the contemporary sports brand is in name as well as in intention. The layering of classical themes of heroism in the contemporary world is something that has always fascinated me and how these heroes, gods and stories can be retold or transformed for other purposes. The image ultimately being one of aspiration and desire.
