Who I am
I hold a bachelor’s degree in Industrial Design from the joint degree program between The University of San Francisco and California College of the Arts.
I believe that the objective of any design process should be to provide originality, grace, and clarity to any project I work on. I am an avid student of human nature, and love learning about the way people interact with the world. This fascination fuels my interest for creating objects and experiences that give us new tools with which to enjoy life.
I am a principal designer and co-founder of HEWN. Feel free to reach out regarding project or career prospects at mikebdesign [at] gmail.com
