ABOUT PENSOLE


Pensole was founded in 2010 as a footwear design academy by D’Wayne Edwards, former Design Director. Implementing a “learn by doing” curriculum students are taught to THINK before they create and do everything by hand, from sketching to rendering to prototyping. Students will learn the entire product design process: inspiration, concept development, design process, problem-solving, materials, prototyping, marketing, business, networking, and branding. Since its conception, PENSOLE has evolved to much more than just a footwear design platform. It is comprised of four different studios that work together to create well-rounded offerings for students interested in the product creation industry.
