Design Director Energy Products at Jordan Brand
Gemo Wong’s role at Nike has always boiled down to evolving product. Whether working with the Jordan Brand or Nike Sportswear, Wong has been a key figure under the Nike banner in Beaverton for quite some time now. Moving within the brand’s hierarchy since he was first hired in 2004, the Chicago-born designer kept busy early this year through his work with Nike’s “Icon” special projects – an undertaking that encompasses remixed editions of the Air Force 1, Cortez, AM90 and other impactful Nike silhouettes. Midway through 2013 Gemo once again joined the ranks of Jordan Brand in providing direction for the premium Jordan executions. Amongst the releases Wong helped bring to fruition this year are the Air Force 1 XXX Downtown “Python” and the limited Jordan 1 “Legends of the Summer” collaboration with Justin Timberlake.
