the Portfolio Project

After viewing merchandise isolated against white backdrops, it is a pleasure to see these items in the context of real settings. The Portfolio Project presents the results of designs by savvy designers who shop at Center44. You can click on the links to their websites to find out more about them, see additional samples of their work, or contact them.


We hope you find inspiration from their creativity.
