As profiled in Esquire Network's "How I Rock It" series, Nike design legend Tinker Hatfield is an industry veteran who's still driven to innovate, even as his various accomplishments have left with him with nothing to prove. Hatfield happily discloses that his official title -- Vice President of Design and Special Projects at Nike -- really means "I get to design whatever I want to, which is cool." He briefly discusses his history with the company he helped build (his track coach Bill Bowerman originally brought him to the Swoosh), then takes the viewer on a tour of Nike's inner sanctum, including the legendary Innovation Kitchen and DNA warehouse. Check out the video below.
