It wasn’t too long ago that you might have found Niko going full ‘Lords of Dogtown’ on his skateboard in some skatepark, his future creative career just a distant sparkle in a kickflip’s eye.

He was so sought after in fact, that he opened his own studio where he founded a storefront, started a brand and then sold the whole shebang.
