adidas is looking to expand its global talent pool by recruiting young designers for its Design Academy, a 24-month program offering hands-on experience in the areas of apparel and footwear, with a focus on color and materials or graphics. The program will be held at the brand’s two major design hubs -- the North America headquarters in Portland, Oregon, and the global headquarters in Herzogenaurach, Germany -- with multiple rotations at several major design studios, including one assignment abroad in locations like Shanghai or Tokyo. Participants will also gain cross-functional knowledge through a 4-week rotation within one of adidas' Brand Design, Product Marketing, Product Development or Innovation teams. The program begins on October 1, 2017, and the application deadline is April 15, 2017. Keep in mind, participants can potentially land a job at adidas after the program. Go here to apply.
