Jamie Reilly / VP, Creative

“The ideal is having a diverse team with diverse backgrounds that can all meld together to make something greater than the sum of the parts.”

Mark Haskins / VP, Footwear Design

“We talk about creative experimentation. Fail or succeed, it’s more of a process to get at innovation.”

Colin O'Connor / Sr. Dir. Design, Apparel

“It’s pretty awesome to work for a brand that, not only can you have your creative passions or interests outside of work, but it’s something that’s embraced and encouraged.”

Submissions now open for Spring 2021 ONE School – Creative Program

Last year, we partnered with The One Club for Creativity for their new ONE School, a free portfolio program for Black creatives that was focused on not only helping students prepare their creative portfolios for job prospects, but also help them navigate the creative industry. As a sponsor of the inaugural initiative, we are pleased to announce that the ONE School is back for another 16-week cohort. Beginning in Spring and with the mission to grow the representation of Black creatives in the industry, the cohort will be made up of creative students from New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta and Chicago. To learn more about the initiative and the submission process which closes March 21, visit HERE.
