Summers started his career in the advertising industry with a deep understanding of the roadblocks and opportunities facing aspiring marketers from marginalized backgrounds. In 2008, he and Lincoln Stephens co-founded the acclaimed Marcus Graham Project, an initiative most noted for its iCR8 Bootcamp, an annual initiative where young professionals launch their own marketing agency in Dallas, Texas and work with non-profits, large corporations and startups.
By 2011, Summers found inspiration for his next venture from a Pharrell verse in Lupe Fiasco’s “Paris, Tokyo” remix and launched Passport Life (fka Passport Project). In an effort to enable international travel for underresourced American youth, Passport Life helped facilitate trips for many young Americans, notably youth poet laureate Ish Islam and Bryan Blue, an internationally-heralded fine artist who most recently designed a highligh sought after sneaker with NIKE’s Jordan Brand. The initiative brought accolades to Kenji such as becoming the
inaugural recipient of Aspen Ideas Festival’s Davis Fellowship in 2015.
In recent years, Summers held roles with Summit, a mountain-based social impact accelerator in Utah; and at Nike, where he helped lead a renaissance of basketball in NYC across youth and high school basketball culture. He helped launch campaigns and footwear for Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. Through his tenure at Nike, he was introduced to rising baller-turned-rapper Sheck Wes (“Mo Bamba”) and has led the musician’s creative
development. The two locked down a deal for the artist with Interscope Records, as well as collaborations between Sheck, Nike Basketball and Foot Locker. In late 2019, the pair released “Mo Bamba”, that skyrocketed to #6 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart, certified 3x Platinum.
Now, as founder and principal of Future Current, Summers has combined his philosophy of “future thinking, current action” to guide brands towards their destiny — one that exists between collision and compassion. He also runs the Free Peace, an objects & garments brand built off of peaceful living. Recently, he held a lecture at The New School: Parson’s School of Design with Randall “Sickamore” Medford, explaining Future Current’s proprietary brand architecture
framework and model.
