At the Academy, designers will have the opportunity to create, invent, and break new ground with the company's existing design teams, in addition to possibly securing a job at adidas upon completion.
Per adi, "We're looking for people who have a passion for sport and never settle for 'good enough.'"
The adidas Design Academy in turn has programs in Portland, Oregon and Herzogenaurach, Germany. Those accepted will also be subject to one assignment abroad, all while gaining cross-functional knowledge in a four-week rotation within Brand Design, Product Marketing, Product Development, or Innovation teams.
Interested candidates must include a portfolio (website or PDF) and a resume, as the deadline to apply is February 1. The program begins October 1.
