You can’t spell party without “art,” and this year’s Design-A-Sock Contest is uniting the two! The theme is “Join the Party!” and it’s calling on you to celebrate with your self-expression and creativity, one design at a time.
Mariana Beatriz Wu is an illustrator who uses vibrant colors and eye-catching shapes in her work, and it was her design, “Fruity Bloom,” that was selected among the top 30 as one of our three winners for last year’s Design-a-Sock Contest. Born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Mariana has always been committed to passionate self-expression that is vivid and fearless; she truly represents how to “Be Bold. Be You.”
Every year, we ask some incredible humans to be the judges for our Design-A-Sock Contest. This year, we wanted to work with people who we felt aligned with the contest’s theme of Unity. A Sock It to Me employee mentioned New Avenues for Youth, and as soon as we looked them up, we knew they were the ones.
For over a decade, we’ve been holding the annual Design-A-Sock Contest and giving YOU the chance to get your design turned into an actual sock. Our founder, Carrie, created the contest to give our fans a chance to participate in the design process. We have loved seeing all of the incredible designs you’ve come up with over the years, and can’t wait to see what you’ll submit this year.
Thank you to all participants, whether you sent inspired drawings… Continue reading Design-a-Sock 2017 Winners!
