Congratulations to the Inaugural Class of Our PNCA/PENSOLE Design Intensive!

News || Dec 20, 2017

On December 8, 2017, students enrolled in our PNCA | PENSOLE Design Intensive program showcased months of hard work during their Salon Exhibition and Final Presentations here at PNCA. Working on projects spanning a range of functions —athletic wear, footwear, functional apparel— and designed for a host of program sponsors like Nike, Adidas, and Under Armour, student teams presented their capstone projects, outlining their creative processes and rationales for their collaborative designs. See images from the event here ⟶

Congratulations to all our students! This has been a milestone term, and we look forward to seeing work from our new class this coming spring '18.


This accelerated program is designed to ready students for a career in the product creation industry. The 15-credit, 12-week intensive is offered through PNCA in partnership with PENSOLE Footwear Design Academy. Students are accepted in one of the following tracks: Color & Material Design, Footwear Design, or Functional Apparel & Accessory Design.
