Mike Cates | Graphic Designer

Hi there! 

I’m always looking to find creative projects that foster the ability to help people achieve their goals. Working with like-minded individuals who value design awards me the opportunity to showcase my visual communication skills to provide collateral for print & web applications.

Naturally being open and communicative with people, my ability to interpret ideas and concepts into creative design comes from a combination of formal design training, a lot of late nights, and connecting with other creatives in the industry to keep up-to-date on what the latest UX design blog is. An unhealthy diet of mid-tier dark roast likely keeps my brain from spilling out but I digress…

If my work & style is something that can benefit your project, feel free to give me a shout. I’m always interested in what people are creating these days and would love to work with you.

Here’s to 2019!
