Mikey Hougland

is a designer, front-end developer, printmaker, and the biggest dog lover you'll ever meet.

I love using superlatives almost as much as I love making things*. There is something truly special about coding or printing your own designs. The moment a vision becomes a real, viable product I feel like Geppetto**; It's nothing short of magic. My quest to experience and share that magic has made me a stronger collaborator and a tenacious problem solver.

* Things includes, but is not limited to: websites, apps, posters, cards, soup, dog cakes, costumes, parade floats, pinatas, signs, buttons, sandwiches, murals, books.

** Geppetto before he gets swallowed by Monstro the whale. Fortunately none of my creations have been as mischievous as Pinocchio.
