Sierra Designs announced the recent hiring of Chase Schofield to the newly created Product Designer position. Bringing with him over seven years of design experience, Schofield is tasked with helping create the next generation of tents, sleeping bags, and backpacks for Sierra Designs.
Sierra Designs says it will look to Schofield to design gear from scratch instead of simply improving on existing designs. The new position is effective immediately.
“Our team believes that Chase has the courage to challenge everything and everyone, the confidence required to expose himself to higher risks, and the fearlessness and passion that is required to create new realities within the outdoor industry,” says Michael Glavin, VP and Brand Manager for Sierra Designs. “With extensive design experience in outdoor and beyond, we have no doubts he will be a great addition to our growing team.”
Schofield’s will work primarily on new equipment with additional responsibilities extending to overall brand design and aesthetic. With a Bachelor of Arts degree from the Art Institute of Colorado, Schofield spent the last three years designing equipment for outdoor equipment brands Kelty and Slumberjack.
