At school, Michelle was really good at art. That led to her studying interior design at university, where she fell in love with CAD (Computer-Aided Design). She realised that graphic design was her calling. After graduating, Michelle taught herself the principles of visual design. She started working in print but digital design was her true love. After a couple of years as a UI designer, Michelle transitioned into product design, working primarily with startups. Being a product designer allows Michelle to incorporate UX into her work, while still focusing on UI design. At Clearleft, everything we deliver is user-centred; Michelle ensures it looks great too.
