Michael is a designer, illustrator and art director. Based in the UK, his work has been used around the world by a diverse range of retail, corporate and public sector clients. Inspiration for Michael's designs comes from his interest in primitive arts and cultures and from the British decorative arts tradition. His hand drawn illustrations and complex patterns translate to single and multiple images for art prints and publishing, and a wide range of products. His interpretation of characters, the natural world and abstract patterns is witty and quirky.

“The Ted Baker Commission provided an opportunity to play with two design elements of character and pattern, which are key features and signatures of my work and which happily related naturally with the British pastime of queuing.”
