2017-Design-a-Sock-Winner-First-Place1st PlaceKatherine

Katherine comes from Maryland and is currently studying mechanical engineering in New Jersey. Art is her favorite hobby between classes, either filling her wall with drawings or being the artist on her friends video game projects. When she’s back home, she helps run a sports camp, makes her own costumes, bakes, and live with her boxer dog. She has a growing collection of colorful socks, and they’ve been a great help in making a good first impression.

2017-Design-a-Sock-Winner-SecondPlace2nd Place—Naomi

As a 22 year old student from Vancouver B.C, I am currently working towards becoming a graphic designer. Ive always had a passion for art and am constantly drawing or painting on my spare time. The world of Graphic design was new to me but once I enrolled in it at school I fell in love. This was the first time I ever participated in the Sock it to Me design contest, or any design contest in that matter, and I loved how creative you could get! It was so much fun seeing my idea come to life and I can’t believe other people liked it as well!

2017-Design-a-Sock-Winner-ThirdPlace3rd PlaceIsabel

My name is Isabel, and I am a 13-year old artist. I’ve been making art for nearly 10 years now, and I don’t think it will ever die out. I’m very ambitious; I’m always working to improve, and always afraid to lose. I’ve won several contests before, but for me to win a place in such a huge event is a huge thing for me! I enjoy playing video games, watching cartoons, and spending time with my fellow geek friends. I also listen to a lot of music. Possibly too much…?

We’re still talking about you

So the contest has come and go, and we’ve announced our winners. But we are still talking about you, and the designs that have floated our way, on clouds of sweet design fairies and unicorns. And we’re just so blessed to call you friends. I hope you know we feel that way about you.

We thought you might enjoy seeing some additional designs that drew our attention, just for the heck of it. And then check out the three winning designs at the bottom, if you haven’t already seen them. Thanks, again, for all of your participation! Enjoy your work week and remember to take a sock break every now and then. (That is when you put up your feet for a bit, showing off your adorably clad peds!)
