We, for a while, thought it would be cool to come up with some radical titles for our team members.
Then, we realized that you don’t really care about radical titles. You want to know who we are, who we really are. Working together requires trust and intimacy. It’s not a time to get clever so here’s the straight goods about our little team of Makers*.
Michelle’s approach begins with curiosity and is rooted in the belief that ideas are the core of visual language. For her, every project is a collaborative journey with clients and teams. The process and design principles are always the same, yet the creative solution is always unique. She will take a keen interest in your business to ignite conscious and passionate solutions that will fuel your brand.
In her 18 years as a designer, creative director and art director she’s worked with hundreds of brands for businesses ranging from local and independent to global multinationals.
She’s won multiple awards, most recently Silver Pentawards, Creativity International Award and several PAC Awards.
Beyond that, she is frighteningly intuitive!
