• Karen Willard

    Owner & Designer

    Intellexual Design is the culmination of art, a LOVE of footwear, and a solid foundation in business.  I am a self-taught artist with a mastery of color and a natural talent for drawing and painting. I have earned both a Bachelor and Master degree in Business Administration from Gardner-Webb University.

    Cory is my husband and soundboard for ideas and is also a fountain of ideas for new shoe designs. He ships orders, occasionally responds to inquiries from our Etsy customers and helps manage the Intellexual Design Facebook page. He also knows some pretty outrageous lacing techniques!

    Chief Fun Officer and Head of Security

    Our CFO is all about having a good time. When he’s not squeaking toy, he can be found napping in his tent in the studio or just chilling out and listening to music.
