Sock Club has always placed a high importance on the design of our product. In fact, Sock Club had a full-time designer before it had a full-time production manager! This is because we believe that well-designed custom products are the best way to represent your brand and make your employees and clients happy.
To this day, we believe that hiring the best designers in the industry is paramount to our success. We have a full, in-house design team that provides white-glove design service to each of our clients.
Molly Lawrence joined the Sock Club design team in the spring of 2020. The company and the world experienced a lot of changes at that time, so Molly has truly seen it all when it comes to Sock Club.
Our team sat down with Molly to check in with her and learn a little more about Molly and her time at Sock Club thus far.
SC: What is your background prior to Sock Club?
Molly: My background is in illustration and graphic design. I taught design and illustration classes while attending grad school, and also worked as a designer and artist in the greeting card industry prior to joining the Sock Club team.
SC: What's been your favorite thing about working at Sock Club?
Molly: My favorite thing about working at Sock Club is the kind and talented group of people I'm lucky to work alongside every day.
SC: What's it like being a Sock Designer for someone who wouldn't know at all?
Molly: We turn clients' sock dreams into reality and we get to see the entire production of a sock along the way! As a designer, we interpret art direction from clients and our sales team, design fun prints and patterns, and see sock designs all the way through to our production team and our knitting mills.

Molly: The great gals on the design team are a constant source of inspiration. Everyone brings such unique talent and spirit to our awesome team.
