About

What I love most about surface design is the opportunity to add a little extra delight to the products that surround us everyday.

Hi, I'm Charlene Williams, freelance designer & owner of Paisley Pickle Inc. Have you ever been asked, "If money was not a concern, what profession would you choose?" I am thankful to say for me it is exactly what I'm doing today...DESIGN!

I started my career as a young designer working for the Target Corporation in Product Design & Development. There, I was able to get my feet wet working on a wide range of designs for backpacks & yoga mats to headbands & tablecloths.

In 2008, I left my corporate career to start my own business Paisley PIckle Inc. located in Minneapolis, MN. I have experience working through all aspects of a product design cycle; trend/color forecasting, print/pattern development, project management & technical specification for manufacturing. Creating prints & patterns for textiles is my passion but I really enjoy working on trends, product design & packaging elements as well.

HOURS: My hours of operation are flexible.
PAYMENT: I prefer 30 day payment terms.
