Chris Stamp is Los Angeles-based designer and founder of Study Footwear. He founded Study Footwear to create a line that would appeal to a younger demographic but has used the company to promote creativity in young adults. Each year he hosts a design contest for UCLA students to design an individual shoe pattern. The competition is organised in conjunction with the UCLA Cultural Affairs Commission . The winning design will be put into production for the Holiday 2011 Study Collection as the UCLA Study Shoe and the designer will have the chance to win a three-month internship at Study Footwear.
UCLA Students can pick up design templates from the Kerckhoff Art Gallery and turn them in to the Cultural Affairs Commission office through Jan. 28. Study Footwear also works with Inner-City Arts, an organization that encourages arts involvement in young children.
