Before we turn to 2012, let’s dive back into 2011, and recall some of FunkKit’s highlights from the past year.
The collaboration with comic and illustration artists such as Dorit Maya Gur, Dan Allon and Matan Liberman have led us to also create FunkKit Workshops for kids ages 7-16. The kids’ creations were amazing; they came up with many new combinations and added their personal touch by drawing with permanent markers on the stickers themselves. The best part was that the kids’ parents were into designing their own shoes, just like their kids.
As you know, FunkKit is more than just Stickers for Sneakers, we provides an opportunity for designers to showcase their artwork.
In April, we 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 had FunkKit’s first designers’ contest and received over 100 designs from designers all over the world. The highlights are currently presented at our online gallery.

On a personal note, we would like to take this opportunity to thank all the talented designers who joined our community, we are incredibly grateful for the support each one of you showed. We don’t take you for granted, and we’re honored to collaborate and share such a close and friendly working relationship with so many of you.
