ABOUT


Michael Laser

I'm a multifaceted graphic and web designer successful in leading and executing strong visual communication solutions in print and on the web. I'm well versed in marketing campaigns, brand identity, email marketing and user experience design.

I am currently part of an in-house corporate marketing team, but also have experience working in a small agency and as a freelance designer.

It's through this background that I have developed a unique perspective in meeting business objectives, anticipating the needs of the client and delivering creative visual communication solutions.

Most days I jump a lot between projects. This ranges in everything from marketing collateral, advertisements and trade show booth graphics to supporting a web development team by designing layouts, visuals, UX and UI for websites, HTML emails and desktop and mobile applications.

My current homestead is with my wonderful wife and two small dogs in southern Orange County. I'm very curious by nature and consider myself a life long learner. I'm passionate about design, fitness, martial arts, coffee and music. Especially coffee.

When I’m away from the desk I train in Krav Maga and enjoy puzzle games, traveling, being outdoors and a good whiskey.
