Last Friday, Jordan Brand Senior Global Design Director Jason Mayden and Director of Energy Footwear Gemo Wong helmed “A Night With Jordan Brand” at Wish Atlanta, peppering attendees with insight into design process and product inspiration, along with wisdoms about life and achieving goals.

The night also allowed for several attendees to have their creative portfolios critiqued by Mayden and Wong, and ten raffle winners got to preview future Jordan Brand sneakers, two of which received the opportunity to co-design their own pair of custom NIKEiD kicks with the design duo.

Sneakers were on display, of course, thanks to Tennessean Joseph Privitte’s select collection and a custom pair of Wish Air Jordan 3 Doernbecher. Rapper Killer Mike was in-house as well.

Cycle through the Wish photos ahead to see how it all went down.

I had a great time! Jason’s presentation was inspiring. I used to draw sneakers all the time as a kid, and dreamed of working for a sneaker company. Growing up in Connecticut I didn’t know how to even get to a nike or adidas. It was cool to hear that they grew up the same way, even though they made it. I would have killed to go to my local shop and meet designers let alone show them my designs. It was just real cool for them and Wish to make that happen.
