- Footwear Design
adidas, Keen, Thirty Two, and Chrome
- Right out of school I had a brief stint doing footwear design. I started out at adidas at their U.S. headquarters in Portland, OR working in the Outdoor and Running categories. After about a year and a half, I broke off and worked as a freelance designer executing designs for Keen and Thirty Two snowboarding boots. I also worked with Rofu Design on launching a footwear brand of retro skateboarding sneakers. The brand never took off and the designs I did ended up getting rolled into Chrome's first line of shoes, many of which can still be seen in their Pedal Series. Here's some of the work I did below.
