My name is Juliusz Slaski. I was born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, and grew up watching Space Jam and Star Wars, playing hockey and snowboarding in the winters, kicking around a soccer ball in the summer, and drawing sneakers, robots and hockey equipment on any scrap of paper I would come across.
As a designer, I try push whatever project I take on in terms of innovation, originality, functionality, and - for lack of a better term - dopeness. Industrial Design school at the University of Alberta, as well as a number of PENSOLE classes have exposed me to the realities of working in the industry, and what it is like to work with people. I seriously love sharing ideas and learning from those around me, and I’m the guy who is going to try to make the team have a good time while making sure the job gets done.
I love footwear design, but any form of creativity makes me happy; music, film, art, fashion are all things I’ve dabbled in and want to pursue in some capacity (starting trumpet lessons soon).
