FunkKit is all about art, self-expression, and footwear, and when you combine this with a great deal of passion and wild imagination the result is a new kind of sneaker art. This gets even better when you add a community of talented designers.
We recently started a project with design students in various art, fashion and design institutes. We invited them to create inspirational designs and get involved with FunkKit’s online platform. We presented and gave them tips on designing their own FunkKit – Sticker for Sneakers, and as always highlighted that it’s time for creativity without limitation – almost everything we see can be modified to an artistic style to be applied on shoes.
We asked two of Ort Hermalin’s students to share with us their thoughts and experience;
Mohammed Erow specializes in Illustrator, Photoshop, Flash, InDesign and Premiere.
“What was your first reaction when hearing about the FunkKit project and design opportunity?” “At first I thought FunkKit would be just like any other design project, but it didn’t take long to understand that FunkKit’s platform is unique and offers a great opportunity to receive exposure and acknowledgment.”
Elina Frayerman, 24 years old, specializes in Illustrator, Photoshop, Flash and InDesign. Winner of FunkKit’s design contest – Community’s most Liked design.
“How did you feel when you were announced as the contest winner
for the Most Liked design with more than 760 Facebook Likes?”
“When I was announced as the winner I was really excited and thrilled! I would like to take this opportunity to send a big thank you to my friends who showed their support and helped me. All the “Likes” were worth it!”
“Origami was your first published work, what should we expect from your following works?” “I’m currently working as a freelancer and trying to gain experiences. I think my following works will continue to have the same clean and simple style as they always do, but always with some kind of message or motto ”
We had a great time at ORT Hermalin, this group of talented, creative people made us proud and we are honored to collaborate with them.
Go creative, look cute but daring and don’t forget to have a sense of humor.
We look forward to see more creative designs.
