Showcase & Discover Creative Work

Michael Bartlett

Art Director, Designer

Portland, OR, USA
I am a forward thinking Portland, Oregon native with a strong drive to excel as a visual artist in the constantly changing world of design and communication arts. A decade of working in multiple disciplines of the industry, coupled with a true willingness to learn and grow has helped me build the strong conceptual and problem solving skills needed to be a successful designer.

Throughout my educational, personal and professional experiences, I have developed a solid background and continued interest in all aspects of design from print advertising to environmental design. As a goal oriented person I can confidently say that I possess a strong understanding of what it means to truly see a project through, from conception to completion.
