RINGLING COLLEGE OF ART AND DESIGN

A typographic scientist in his senior year at Ringling College of Art and Design, Michael’s love of design began with a steady diet of technology and gaming. Michael is constantly creating in and out of the studio, pushing himself to incorporate new mediums into his work. LVL3000, one of his side projects, is an exploration of experimental typography and silkscreen printing. Inspired by great designers like Paula Scher and Shepard Fairey, Michael aims to discover the best things designers have done. After interning at Mullenlowe in Los Angeles, Michael is back at Ringling for his final year and is eager to enter the industry.
