About the speaker

A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, Michael is an award-winning creative director whose work has been recognized by almost too many industry organizations. Waaaaaay back in 2008, Michael received the New Visual Artist Award from Print Magazine, a recognition given to the top 20 designers under 30. In 2010 he was selected from an international group of creatives to be one of 50 Art Directors Club Young Guns. Prior to birthing Franklyn in 2012, he partied with Stefan Sagmeister in his New York studio.

These days Michael continues to raise his almost-5-year-old child, Franklyn – located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn – alongside his partner, Patrick Richardson. He’s lucky enough to be surrounded by a superbly talented group of designers, illustrators and smarties who make up the rest of the Green family. They like to keep it button-ed up when they must, creative and weird whenever possible.

Outside of his work at Franklyn, Michael is the creative director at large for Marz Brewing, an award-winning and fantastically ridiculous brewery located in Chicago’s Community of the Future, Bridgeport.
