NW Material Show (PDX)

Anyone in town or attending the NW Material Show in Portland next week?

I’ll be presenting a workshop with Jones & Vining and walking the show Wednesday, March 1.

The Last is First: Foundation for Good Design

From spec to sketch and beyond, this discussion will explore topics through the lens of technical development and footwear design. A must-attend for designers, developers, sales, and footwear start-up founders.

Always nice to connect with familiar (and new) core77 faces.

Register here for the talk-

The event is almost at capacity! Should be an interesting discussion. We have people coming from Nike, Keen, Deckers and more.

Portland footwear friends, stop by.

Session is full and 100% sold out!

I’ll be walking around in the morning and at the JV booth after the presentation.

Come say hi. Still happy to connect.


Thanks to everyone who came by! It was a packed session with footwear designers, developers, students and more. The Sold Out event was a highlight of the show and the engagement of footwear professionals in the room was amazing.

Definitely working on arranging more of these workshops!
