Hi, I am Michael. I am a university student studying a Bachelor of Design specialising in Interactive / App design. Learning to create and develop interactive applications from mobile apps to instructional interactive websites, I cover all subjects related to the topic.
I have always wanted to be creative, but didn’t want to be an artist. I also found a passion in programming, but this never brought my creative side to life at all. Combining both worlds was my goal and in my pursuit of finding a balance of logic and creativity, I came across design. Instinctively I feel into interactive design as it combines my programming side with developing websites using HTML, CSS and JS to my creative side where I look at colour, typography, layout and style.
Currently I work for Touch Creative, a social marketing agency solving complex problems for large organisations such as ING Direct, AMEX, Gumtree and more. Being in the industry is a huge learning curve and is also challenging, refining my skills and creating new ones along the way. I have fallen in love with Photoshop and Illustrator where I now devote most of my time to learn.
