Michele Brautnick
Independent Creative Director and Visual Designer
I design meaningful graphic identities that reflect the attributes and business goals of the brand. This visual platform – what a brand looks like, sounds like, feels like – helps shape your brand in the mind of your target audience.

Grand Rapids, MI • March 2000 - 2012
Design Director
My days are spent translating business strategies into realization. This includes concept development, refinement, and guiding a team to ensure the outcome is reflective of the brand attributes.

General project oversight, leading by example, and taking the brand pulse are what I do best. I’ve had success and deep experience in designing systems/program work, photo direction, and production management.

Effective delegation, mentoring, and skill development of supporting designers. Involved in hiring, managing and developing staff.
