Remember our May Design Challenge with Bucketfeet, the company who works with artists to create amazingly unique shoes? Well, they decided to feature not just the winner but three Spoonflower designers in this limited-edition oceans-themed footwear line! Not only are they offering the winning design, Under the Water by lavish_season, but they also included two more Design Challenge top 10 finalists in this capsule collection: Oh, the Hue-Manatee by spottedpepperdesigns and Life at Sea by mimipinto. We’re so thrilled to see these designs come to life! Read on to get to know each of our talented designers whose designs will be featured.
Congrats to "Under the Water" by Lavish Season!
We are excited to announce the winner of our Oceans Design Challenge: "Under the water" by Lavish_season!
BucketFeet will use this design to help build a collection raising awareness about the environmental issues and the impact of rising sea levels on ocean health. The Challenge winner received $250 from BucketFeet and $150 from Spoonflower, a licensing contract for a run of footwear, and a pair of shoes featuring their design.
Congratulations to the rest of our top ten winners who each received $150 in Spoonflower credit, and all who participated in our Oceans Design Challenge with BucketFeet! Hooray!
