Black-tie gala fundraiser ceremony to support the club’s DEI programs on October 27, 2022 at Tisch Skylights at The Shed, Hudson Yards in New York
Based on a legacy of game-changing creative work, the trio of basketball legend Michael Jordan, Nike cofounder, chairman emeritus Phil Knight, and Oscar-winning screenwriter, filmmaker, and actor Spike Lee will be inducted as a team of collaborators.
The trio created work — including famous campaigns starring Jordan with the character Mars Blackmon, portrayed by Lee — that transcended the ad industry to become part of pop culture, and changed the way the world thinks about athletic footwear.
“Michael Jordan, Phil Knight and Spike Lee are responsible for a body of highly engaging, entertaining and impactful advertising, and revolutionized the athletic footwear industry,” said Kevin Swanepoel, CEO, The One Club. “They are richly deserving of this induction as collaborators into the Creative Hall of Fame, and continue to inspire the next generation of creative professionals.”
The Creative Hall of Fame has a rich heritage of honoring the lifetime achievements of creative luminaries in all forms of advertising and design, starting with the induction of Leo Burnett in 1961.
Other 2022 inductees, announced last month, are:
