Michelle has been an unmatched mentor and leader to me. Working with Michelle has given me an education of design and studio-workings that will help me throughout the rest of my career. As an art director, she is great at critiquing work in a constructive yet encouraging fashion that not only improves work efficiently, but also boosts motivation to learn more. As a designer, her methodical approach is extremely purposeful, thorough, and precise. It is hard to think of a harder worker. Her passion for design is contagious. I hope to someday be as great of a designer and leader.

Michelle did a fantastic job designing packaging for a line of hair care products that my company had acquired and was relaunching. Working from consumer insights and brand strategy, she developed designs that leveraged the brand’s equity. She worked cheerfully under tremendous pressure and always met our deadlines. At every step of the way she willingly sought our input and incorporated it into her work. We were extremely pleased with the end result.
