Not yet serious

If there's a rhyme to Sherwood's body of work, it's fun. If there's a reason, it's a non sequitur.

Sherwood's formative years were spent in Harare where a lack of friends cultivated in him an unruly imagination and a knack for extracting fun from seemingly mundane things. Today, he is regarded as one of the most cheeky designers of his time whose works and concepts have been feted by the likes of the MoMA and the New York Times.

Originally intending to be a concert classical pianist, Sherwood instead pursued a degree in Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering at Princeton University. He later went on to consult for top-tier creative agencies including IDEO, Smart Design, frog, and the Arnell Group. Today, Sherwood is unemployed.

An intrinsic curiosity, a penchant for the absurd, and an ostensible disregard for rules are what define Sherwood's current sensibilities. His works are unique, thought-provoking, and sometimes controversial. He's been lauded as a "design wunderkind" by some, but also vilified as a "hare-brained nincompoop" by others. Nevertheless, being the hare-brained nincompoop that he really is, Sherwood doesn't rest on his laurels nor does he allow criticism to deter his whimsy.

Sherwood's grand ambitions are to one day become a humble keeper of a nut butter shop. His love for the delicious and nutritious spreads are superseded only by the golden dream maker that is beer.

Happy feet

As an avid dancer himself, Sherwood gladly accepted an invitation to reinterpret the male tap dancing shoe for the modern day.

The result is a fashion-forward shoe that is both for daily-use as well as bustin' loose.
