I am a well rounded Industrial Design graduate from the Columbus College of Art & Design. My portfolio mainly consist of footwear design but, because of my curiosity within the field of design and my ability to speak multiple languages, I am able to extend beyond my footwear passions and delve into other visual areas, such as product design, graphic design, painting and drawing. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, comments or interest. Thank you for your time, Clifford Charles
