what
I
do!

Hello! I’m Michael, a passionate designer who wants to make lives easier through design.

In past life’s, I’ve worked in customer service, hearing the troubles of everyday people, and it was here were I saw opportunities to remove fiction and see solutions. My interest is to connect with people from people backgrounds, fueled by a life long ambition to understand.

Now, I am an advocate for learning and development, teaching myself HTML & CSS, furthering my studies to advance my career in the UX field, studying Psychology, wanting to empower users everywhere I can…. and in-between all that play guitar and do geeky stuff.

What people say?

Mike has helped us as a freelance graphic designer from time-to-time. He provides a great service, communicates well and always delivers to time and budget - recommended!
Andrew Jack

I was fortunate to work with Michael a few years ago, and he was a valued member of our team. He’s creative, with the technical skills to match, great in a team environment - personable and always eager to contribute. He’s driven, and works hard to get the details right. I’d happily work with him again.

The Winning
Process

Understanding the human experience is essential for creating useful and effective products. I enjoy using my skill set to empower people to accomplish their goals. I create digital experiences that make life easier.

 

  1. Empathize with the users (learning about the audience)
  2. Define the problem (identifying the users’ needs)
  3. Ideate (generating ideas for design)
  4. Prototype (turning ideas into concrete examples)
  5. Test (evaluating the design)

“Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.” — Steve Jobs.
