Michael Hobson is a designer with over 16 years experience under his belt.
He started out as a teenager tinkering around in Photoshop and Flash, which led to working for an advertising startup – building and designing software and adverts at the age of 17.
Following that he studied at London Metropolitan University where he earned a degree in Digital Media. Michael then spent 3 years with a web design agency in Soho, where he refined his skills and really developed his passion for design, along with a ton of client-facing skills.
Since 2011, Michael has been freelance, working on projects for high profile clients in the startup community, as well as startups of his own. Michael has worked on website design & build, branding & logo design, app design, user experience (UX) design & consultancy, illustration, animation, video and even won awards for his writing.
He’s extremely passionate about design, and loves making things which are not only beautiful but highly functional and easy to use. When not designing, you’ll find him either climbing, cycling or PC gaming!
Since early 2015, Michael has been the Lead Design Instructor for General Assembly London. He teaches various one-day workshops covering topics from Visual Design Fundamentals to User Experience, Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign courses, as well as an 8-week part-time Visual Design course.
