I had the pleasure of working with Michael for several years at Colony Logic, where he led our brand redesign and launch as well as our product UI and UX.

He often collaborated with creative partners to concept and create innovative and big marketing ideas, produced layouts to communicate initial ideas and then followed through to deliver flawless executions. He took complex concepts and products and brought them to life, simply and beautifully, utilizing a variety of internal and external resources.
