What do you get when you mix five world-class female athletes, their inspirational stories, a catchy slogan and an eclectic group of illustrators and animators?

In this case, it's the campaign for Nike Women in Europe that Wieden + Kennedy, Amsterdam.

It all started with the slogan "Here I Am," which, while immediately conjuring a certain Scorpions song, aims to use a strong, declarative statement to encapsulate the self-empowerment that attracts many women to sport.

A series of five short webfilms with a wide range of illustration and animation styles are featured as an interactive piece at nikewomen.com.
