Meet Michael Franz...

Michael Franz is a multi-hyphenate designer and has lived his creative life subscribing to a trial by fire methodology. 

Faced with opportunity in an area with little to no experience, he will figure it out using creative problem solving skills and invest in the tools himself to get the job done.


In the 7 years post Bachelors, he has explored and taken on sewing, embroidery, screen printing, vinyl cutting, airbrushing, garment dyeing, graphic design, heat pressing, 3D printing, industrial design and now zine printing.

Over his creative career, Franz has branded himself as someone curious to learn, forthright with ideas, and willing to help others reach their goals. He looks to continue to do just that in the implementation of the Franz ’N Family Footwear Class Tour.
