Back to The Netherlands! / The new design team member at Adidas?

I know it has been a while since  last blogged. Since I graduated I moved back home to The Netherlands. I took some time off to clear my head after this past year. It has been a extreemly busy year with huge ups and massive downs. Of course I have been looking for a job as well.

At the graduation fashionshow in May, there where people from Adidas present. A few weeks after the show they contacted me and told me they where interested in me and asked if I would like to work for them. During an interview over the phone they asked if I wanted to do an assignment for the rugby departement. I gave it a go and dove into the world called rugby. Because I didn’t know anything about rugby most of my time was spend on researching. I did the assignment, but to be honest I didn’t think it was my best work ever. When Adidas came back to me they sad that they liked my assignment, but they could tell I wasn’t a rugby expert. They would have offered me a job if this position wasn’t for a senior designer. The asked me if I would like to do another assignment for Adidas Originals Kids. I wasn’t eager to go for kidswear because I have been trying to get this label that I can only do Kid’s wear off. But because I would love to work for Adidas decided to give it a go. To my surprise I loved doing this assignment. Combining sports with kid’s wear came quite easy to me. Very proud of this result! Adidas came back with the comment that they loved my work, but Adidas decided not to hire any new design people, so therefor this story ends.
