Adobe Substance 3D collaborates with On and renowned design school CREAPOLE

Getting to know the members who regularly share their work on The Rookies platform and learning from schools about how design students are diversifying and expanding their 3D skills, we love seeing what comes from creative collaborations like that with the Adobe Education team and CREAPOLE, a top product design school based out of Paris.


The aim of the collaboration was to bring together professional footwear designers from On and 3D artists from Adobe. The participating product design students were provided with the Substance 3D Collection along with the insights needed to elevate their designs. Students were given a base footwear model from On, and then used Substance 3D Painter, Sampler, and Stager to texture and render their models during a 3-day workshop.

Adobe were so amazed by the quality of the work produced by the students that they partnered with Mimaki to make some of the students a 3D print of their shoe design. Check out the video below that captures the experience.
