At Nike, we believe it's time for a new age of design where sustainability is built into all products, right from the very beginning. That's why Nike developed MAKING, a tool that inspires designers and creators to make better materials choices, as an integral part of the creation process. Making provides designers with information to allow real-time decisions on the environmental impacts of materials widely used in apparel and footwear. the App ranks materials based on their specific environmental impact in four key areas: Chemistry, Energy, Water and Waste.

Using environmentally-friendly materials leads to better product creation and realizes a sustainable society. This is the philosophy expressed by this application for smartphones. Various factors that indicate environmental burdens are shown in rankings in real time, which will have a major impact on consumer promotion as well as the design process for designers at this company. Its visualization of data mainly by infographics is exceptionally beautiful and easy to understand. Such disclosure of information sometimes ends up just as a string of figures. However, this application succeeds in raising your motivation to start up through an animation with a satisfying user interface and excellent operability.
