Foot Work: Basics of Sneaker Design at Agenda Emerge Recap

On January 6th, we held Foot Work at Agenda Emerge in Long Beach during a series of workshops presented by Project Cobalt. Our workshop was instructed by Jason Mayden, former Senior Global Design Director for Jordan Brand. He is now Vice President of Design for MarkOne (makers of Vessyl) as well as a fellow at Stanford’s d.school. Bringing his vast knowledge on design and innovation, Jason presented the fundamentals of design and how to apply them to sneakers through a series of exercises. After the workshop, attendees were able to put what they learned to use at home by buying a Palette Studio sneaker sketchbook. If you have any questions for Jason, don’t hesitate to tweet him at @JayMay_ChiCity. Thank you to everyone that came out and we look forward to the next one!
