Work portfolio for Michelle Foligno.
I am all about designing compelling surfaces. I believe in the power of color, design and texture to transform the items in our daily lives. I translate these influences into my work to help clients create textiles and products that resonate with consumers and stand apart in the cluttered marketplace.
I approach my work with you and your brand in the forefront of my mind. I create “concept to shelf” collections for all surfaces including the home/gift market. My mission is to be your source of fresh, creative inspiration to propel your product forward.
