Don C has traveled around the world and made a name for himself with his luxury sportswear brand Just Don and as co-founder of RSVP Gallery and the South Side-born and raised native was just announced as a Creative Strategy and Design Advisor for the one and only Chicago Bulls.
Don grew up attending Bulls games with this father at the old Chicago Stadium and in his new role, Don is putting his touch on a range of projects and initiatives, such as immersive experiences, fan engagement, digital content, retail products, youth programming, and community outreach.
“There are few things I have loved as long as I have loved the Bulls. It’s a dream come true to be able to combine my passion as a fan and my passion as a creative to help this legendary franchise to tap into the culture around the game,” said Don C. “Our goal will be to deepen connections with fans and make an impact in their lives. This isn’t just about designing merch, but combining bigger things like music, lifestyle and fashion to represent the Bulls as both an NBA team and a global brand. I can’t wait to work with their talented team of people.”
“Don is a true leader in the creative industry, a native Chicagoan who operates at the intersection of sports, culture and innovation,” said Susan Goodenow, Executive Vice President of Marketing and Communications. “His unique skillset, interests and creativity have established him as a culture setter across the worlds of fashion, sports, and music. The Bulls have been very intentional about building relationships across the Chicago creative community, and through our work with Don we will look to take these efforts to the next level. We look forward to partnering with Don to create deeper relationships with our fan base in new and previously unimagined ways.”
