Adidas Originals Footwear Design Intern
Jun 2014 - Dec 2014 (6 months)
I was granted a 6 month internship as a footwear designer at Adidas Originals in Portland. While there I helped design two toolings, and multiple uppers. One of the outsole designs will be used in an upcoming model. I also furthered my knowledge about tech-packs and shell patterns. Also I was actively engaged with weekly meeting with PM's, the color design team and the pattern makers. All while presenting my ideas and projects as clearly and effectively as possible.

I learned how to quickly meet tight deadlines and to address needed changes as accurately as possible.
