Looking for a Design Home (employment)

My name is Michael; I am an award winning designer from Chicago looking for a permanent design home. I have worked for several different companies that have given me a great deal of confidence and experience in a short amount of time. For over a year now, I’ve been freelancing my services in the windy city and feel its time to join a company in which I can further develop and grow as a designer. I believe I would make an excellent candidate for any design company who is willing to let me prove to them that I belong. I possess great communication and organizational skills, an immensely strong work ethic, a vast knowledge of software (including complex surfacing) and ability to work with tight and demanding deadlines. If you would like to see more, please follow the link below and thank you very much for your time and consideration. (I can be reached through the site below)



Very nice work, Michael. I’d suggest adding more information in your “overview” section, as I do not know how many years of experience you have or what particular skills you possess.

Where did you go to school? What award did you win? Was it for your push-pin project? I didn’t read into it, but what is the advantage of your push-pin design over the standard one?

Again, nice work. Everything appears very clean and well done.

Hey 6ix,
Thanks for looking at my stuff and the suggestions. I actually went to University of Illinois in Champaign, the award was an Idea/Businessweek Gold Excellence award for the Push-pin. Pretty funny right, but the design is quite unique. It has two pins that wont allow the paper to swivel, ro dip in, the horseshoe type hole allows for the stringing of cords or wires inbetween while still holding an item in place. I guess that particular idea came from living in dorms and putting up lights etc. It has some very soft edges and simply feels alot better when in your hand verses the traditionally hard pins of the past.
