Showcase & Discover Creative Work

Michael Bartlett

Art Director, Designer

Portland, OR, USA
A true love for everything creative has allowed me to grow and nurture a diverse skill set and thought process. By nurturing all of my curiosities both personal and professional, I have developed a solid background and interest in all aspects of design from print and advertising to environmental design and everything in between. Curiosity coupled with a genuine willingness to learn has given me an inside look and working knowledge of the many facets of this complicated industry.
