Trail by Design and style benefits – An Open Letter from Backpacker and Merrell


Hello to the outside-loving neighborhood,

Earlier this summer season, BACKPACKER launched our Trail by Design and style system in partnership with Merrell. Our purpose with the system was to share the stories of outside-loving artists via person function stories and a one of a kind style that portrayed what the trail indicates to them. And WOW. The styles did not disappoint! We’ve loved showcasing the artists and their connection to our organic spaces via their eyes and artwork. We hope the system has positively impacted other individuals to get outdoors and get inspired.

Thanks for watching!

For these that have been following the project, Heidi Nisbett and Latasha Dunston have been in an unbelievably close race all through the final couple months. Their networks and extended communities have been functioning difficult to show their dedication to each and every of the artists, along with the thousands of other individuals who may well not know them, but merely had been most drawn to their styles. Each artists/styles received additional than 19,000 votes, vastly placing them in the lead early on. Lots of of us have been anxiously awaiting the contest deadline of Aug. 30 to see who would in the end stroll away with additional votes and the grand prize of money plus a $7,500 donation to a non-profit organization of their option.

Thanks for watching!
