I designed these shoes with a unique goal in mind: to create a shoe as a summation of an entire culture’s art. Each shoe possesses design qualities, color palettes, and designs only found in the respective culture. This project allowed me to investigate art historical cultures in a special way by challenging myself to translate an entire style (or series of styles) onto a single object.
Conveniently, I was able to use these designs as the concentration section of my AP Studio Art portfolio and received a score of a 5!
I possess full federal copyright of these designs.
Tiffany is one of those girls you meet who can’t help but make you laugh. We were immediately smitten by the young Design Director’s bubbly sense of humor, and by the end of the day incredibly obsessed with how talented she is. Learn the toughest part about being the Director of Design at ban.do, and her favorite trend of the moment.
