Having long since been overwhelmed by the untapped talent within our community, we wanted to find yet more ways to represent and enable designers to fulfil their potential in industry. Therefore, when we reached out to Adidas Talent we not only learned of their admiration for the page, but we learned they also already use @lacelessdesign as a valuable talent scouting tool! With this shared appreciation for the footwear design community, we set out to find a way to focus a search for skillsets that would be required for a genuine work opportunity at one of the world’s most desirable companies.
