About Me

Hello and Welcome!

My name is Mike and this is my portfolio website.

I am a talented designer from Edmonton, Ab, who is looking to build a career in graphic and web design, that leverages my many years of experience delivering customer solutions in a professional environment. As a team player, I am looking to join an organization where I can apply my design skills to provide clients with high quality design solutions, and continue to grow my professional skills.

As I have developed my skills in graphic and web design, I had the opportunity to work on some interesting projects for businesses and non-profit organizations in the city of Edmonton. I created this website to showcase these projects along with other examples of my design capabilities. So please feel free to take a look around. If you have any questions or inquires regarding my design services please don’t hesitate to contact me. ~ Mike
