words // Nick DePaula:
Moments ago, adidas design leaders Marc Dolce and Denis Dekovic jointly announced on LinkedIn that the brand is now looking to hire creatives for its upcoming Brooklyn Creator Farm, slated to open later this year.
The space has been in the works since Dolce, Dekovic and Mark Miner joined the brand, each taking on leadership roles as adidas VP Creative Director of the Brooklyn Farm. The three will help to lead the Farm, and will work on advance concepts and design vision.
“The open source creation center is designed to help shape creative direction across the entire brand and grow and foster emerging design talent,” an adidas brand spokesperson tells Nice Kicks. “With a growing team already in place, the Brooklyn Farm will officially open this fall.”
There are currently fifteen open positions at the Farm, which include Concept Creator roles, along with roles for Material, Footwear and Apparel Creators and positions in its newly created Maker Lab.
To apply, you can find available position listings at the brand’s adidas Group Careers page. You can read Marc Dolce’s full letter below:
