Established in 2015, Freckled Footwear has grown to become the largest independent 3D Footwear Design Consultancy in Canada. We specialize in the creation of studio-quality 3D assets for digital sampling and animation. Possessing advanced skills in 3D lighting, texturing, shading, rendering, and compositing with Modo, Blender, Solidworks, or Zbrush, we deliver whatever your brand requires. For additive manufacturing solutions, we utilize Ntopology to create and iterate generative lattice structures that propel your brand into the future. Our designers have experience with large private brand houses (Canadian Tire, Sportsdirect.com), international brands (Skechers, Helly Hansen), and some of the World’s most sustainably innovative footwear brands (Skye FootwearNative Shoes).
