Thank you to all participants, whether you sent inspired drawings or voted on your favorites, for making 2017 Design-a-Sock Contest so great!
Now, let’s meet the artists behind the designs:
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.
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!

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…?
GeekDad thinks our socks are almost as good as money:
“Now through September 30, Sock It To Me is inviting fans and artists from around the world to submit a unique sock design for a chance to win up to $2,000 in cash and 15 free pairs of SITM socks–which are almost as good as money.”
That’s a pretty good compliment! We also don’t mind that they’re telling their fans about our Design-a-Sock Contest, which also gives you the chance to turn your idea into a real, live sock.
