Mig is a graphic designer from Chicago trying to make nice things for nice people. He designs for the web at Threadless, asks people to share advice on Humble Pied and a few other things, too.

I’ve worked with some really great design studios and agencies, now happily working as an interactive designer at the world’s most awesome t-shirt company: Threadless. Beyond making the internets and modeling tees, I’m passionate about experimenting on side projects and collaborating with other creative types. I’m into paying positive experiences forward, so I serve as a mentor in AIGA, as well as lecture at colleges and conferences. I also teach at The Chicago Portfolio School, sharing my work experiences with my students. But beyond all that design stuff, I’m also way into craft beer, pizza and dance parties. Usually all together. So, we should be friends.
