Hello and welcome! I'm Michaela. I'm an in-house graphic designer at the Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History and freelancer living and working in Santa Cruz, CA. 

At the museum I create print media for our exhibitions, marketing materials like flyers and posters, and work on projects that support our community programs (fun stuff like stickers, patches, and colorful banners). I love my museum work but also love the opportunity freelancing gives me to try new things for diverse clients from different lines of work. 

One of the things I love about design is it can be a powerful tool. I love how a visually beautiful design can create real world results. I'd describe my style as clean, bold and modern and I live for the 'creative process' from brainstorming to polishing the final design. 

Please feel free to browse my portfolio or get in touch if you have any questions.

Excited about the possibilities,
