WHAT IT IS
Do you have what it takes to become a professional footwear designer? Design is a skill that takes dedication and commitment in order for you to get better and so you can impress brands through your work. Below is a message from our founder, D’Wayne Edwards:
“My commitment to design started back in 1989, where EVERYDAY for 6-months, I put sketches in the suggestion box of the company I worked for. It was that dedication that got the attention of the president of the company who hired me.
I did it for 180 days but join us in the #21DaysofDesign challenge and compete daily via Instagram in 21 consecutive days of sketching contests. The winner will receive a scholarship to attend [email protected] Academy and have a chance to see their design produced and sold at retail.“
