updates, interviews, and other minutia
This week we are shining the light on Footwear Designer Jovan Popovic. We met at a College for Creative Studies portfolio review and I was taken with his enthusiasm, skills and confidence with which he spoke about his work. We pinged him to help us out putting together IDRAW SHOES, the latest addition to our series of sketchbooks. He was awesome to work with - kept the energy level high and always had new ideas for how we could teach certain aspects of Footwear Design. As a pro designer at Reebok in Boston, Mass. he's got his hands full churning out the shoes tomorrow's athletes will be rocking on the court, field and blacktop. If you're looking to get into footwear, keep an eye on Jovan because he's just getting warmed up. Read on
