Michael Pothos Design is owned by myself, Michael Pothos. I have gained over 15 years of experience working for companies in the field of graphic design and web design / web development. With my experience, I have gained knowledge of using some of the top programs in the industry and the latest coding languages around.

My goal is to produce work that grabs attention to anyone that sees it. I know the importance of getting the attention a business needs with branding. I strive to always go the extra mile and pride myself on getting the job done with the result the client expects.

My approach in designing for clients includes understanding the market and knowing the competition, but in the end I do what’s best for your business, your budget, and you.
