Michael’s practice is built on collaboration with the many brands, creators, clients and co–conspirators he works with.

Despite his best efforts, Michael is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design and is the co-founder and creative director of Franklyn, a design studio in New York. He was as surprised as you were to learn he’d received the ADC Young Guns and New Visual Artists awards, recognizing the world’s top creatives under the age of 30.

Michael’s work blends branding, design and illustration across a smorgasbord of clients and causes. Whether working with artists at Marz Community Brewing Co. and Materiel Magazine, start–ups Capsule, Cerebelly and Marlow or institutions like The New York Times, MetLife and Sotheby’s — collaborative process is at the heart of Michael's work.

This work, which you may or may not have enjoyed on the homepage, is enabled by his incredible team and the wonderfully talented assembly of creators in his orbit. A few of them are listed below.
