Hybrid creative and production studio Ammolite Inc. has added worldy and surrealistic artistry of Italian designer Teresa Fogolari to their roster. She specialises in 3D sculpting, animation, and motion design and has a penchant for dramatic, emphatic visuals.
Fogolari studied at the University of Arts in London and earned her degree in Creative Direction. She further explored her skills at Lucy Hardcastle Studio Ltd., where she worked on projects for clients such as Prada x Yoho! Boy, Calvin Klein Jeans, V&A, and others. Fogolari’s playful works aim to push the boundaries of reality, by blending real shapes and dreamlike scenarios. Her work spans a wealth of mediums, from digital content to printed editorials, from commercials to artistic practice.
Fogolari continues to explore the potential of 3D through new technologies, including VR and AR, to bring her visions to life. She has been featured in publications internationally, including Dazed, The New Yorker, Vogue Italia, and i-D. Her clients have included Hoxton, ANAME, BLOK, Coeval, and Trippin’ x Hima Alaya.
Ammolite managing director Kirsten Arongino says: “Teresa’s portfolio is extraordinary and diverse. Her work has sparked debates over the boundaries of ethical practices in design and inspired others to test the limits of their imaginations. We’re thrilled to add her passion for her craft and her skills in digital design to our creative team.” Fogolari adds: “I’m excited to take this huge step forward in my career. Everyone at Ammolite is amazing and I know being on their roster will elevate my exposure in the industry and challenge me to continue producing groundbreaking and provocative work.”
Prior to signing with Ammolite, Fogolari consulted with 3D designer Sai Aya. This is her first US representation.
