Michael Penn

Web / Graphic Designer - UX/UI Designer


Hello!

My name is Michael. I call myself a designer as it’s a nice umbrella term for what I do such as Visual Design, Web Designer, Graphic Designer and UX/UI Designer. I am currently living in Toronto, ON, Canada. I have always loved design in ever form and it's a passion. I consider myself a designer of many trades and love to learn new things. My currently work is more web orianted but I still do print work. I love to learning new things all the time, and I feel the need to always be on the look for what is happening in the world of design and what are the trends as there are so many great designers out there. As a designer, I have learned a lot of things, some good, some bad, and today I feel the need to evolve to something different, be challenged by new things and I am always on the searching for my next design project or position as a designer / art director. So lets talk!
