For Nike‘s fervent fan base, the Pacific Northwest is home to one of the most sacred places in the world: Beaverton, Oregon. Seven miles west of downtown Portland, the city is also the adopted home of Jose Cabaco, Nike’s Concept Creative Director at the C.O.D.E. (Center of Design Excellency) in Global Design. Born in Mozambique, the artist and designer studied to become an industrial designer in Portugal before moving on to the world of advertising. This led a sequence of events that began with Cabaco’s own agency, Home — where he did his first work for Nike — and a stint at Wieden+Kennedy Amsterdam before becoming Nike’s Brand Creative Director for Sportswear 15 years later. In our latest installment of HYPEBEAST Road Trips Portland, Cabaco took some time from his busy schedule to sit down with us for a Pen & Paper, available now for your viewing pleasure above.
