This month Spoonflower is hosting a design contest in collaboration with BucketFeet to design a pair of shoes with an ocean theme. While I usually don’t have time to participate in these contests, this one sounded too fun to pass up, so I decided to give it a try. I love the ocean and ocean creatures, so I designed a pattern with colorful critters that shows the diversity and interlocking nature of this underwater world.
Voting opens next week, and while it would be cool to win, I really enjoyed creating this design (and hey, making the top ten and getting $150 in Spoonflower dollars would be fantastic).
It makes me want to design more shoes in the future. Wink, wink shoe manufacturers.
