> oh, hello! i design visually-driven narratives for children and the young at heart.
My name is Michelle, and I design and illustrate with a focus on publication design and brand identities.
Specializing in both print and digital media, I love working collaboratively to tell meaningful stories that resonate through a combination of research, wonder, humor, and thinking outside-the-box.
I graduated from the Communication Design program at Emily Carr University of Art & Design, have a background in animation for children's television, and I was most recently a Children's Design Fellow at Chronicle Books.
I live in Vancouver, BC, Canada, and when I’m not at my desk you'll find me camping obsessively, puttering around in my old car, searching for records, swooning over vintage book covers, reading picture books, sewing patches on my jean vest, consuming all kinds of culture, drinking cold brew with my nose buried in a book, shooting film for fun, ogling blackletter, crocheting, and practicing surface pattern design, calligraphy, and hand-lettering.
