Meet Our Deuce Custom Kicks Makers: Eve

Merchant Makers Series

Recently, we ran our Deuce Custom Kicks design a sneaker contest, inviting you all to design a print for your dream canvas sneakers. Thank you to everyone that entered, we were overwhelmed with how many talented designs there were! We hope our Custom Kicks contest brought those who entered, a fun and creative outlet to lighten the mood during lockdown. Creativity can be discovered in all aspects of life, whether it’s the shoes you put on your feet, the places they take you, or the special moments you create in your day.

 


As we continue to celebrate creativity, we want to spotlight our Winner and Runner’s up, to give you an insight into the faces behind the designs that you loved and voted for.

 Deuce Custom Kicks Runner Up

Eve wins 1x pair of custom kicks to step up her sneaker game with her very own design. We can’t wait to see this design brought to life! In the meantime, Eve fills us in on all things creative and the inspiration behind her design.

 

 

WHat does creativity mean to you?
E: To me, it’s the freedom to express the stories that make up your identity.

 

 

what are you reading/listening to at the moment?
E: Lana Del Rey’s Born To Die album on repeat. So lush.

 

 

inspiration behind your design entry?
E: Growing up a child of the 80s, I love anything to do with that aesthetic. Watching Stranger Things has brought back a lot of nostalgia. I enjoy playing around with colours and styles from that era. My design was intended to capture the spirit of the 80s and it makes me think of Jem and the Holograms or Friday nights at the roller disco.

 

 

how would you describe your art/design style
E: I love pastels! If you come to my house, you’re surrounded by it. My rugs, tables, crockery, bedspread and décor all have some element of soft pink or spearmint green. Within my art, I like to contrast the pastels by adding darks like teal and navy. After entering Custom Kicks, I am interested in exploring 80’s patterns more! 

 

 

where can we find your work or follow your journey
E: Most of my artwork is actually portraiture. I love faces and musculature and am inspired by how Da Vinci studied this art. If anyone is interested in checking out my work, visit my Instagram: @evemcsoriley_art

 

 

At the very core of Deuce, we value the importance of experimenting, trying new things and not taking life too seriously. And over the past few months, we have learned the value and benefits of keeping positive and creative during challenging periods. We aim to continue to bring more creative activities to our community soon.
