Michael Robinson NYC: Creative Director, visual artist, Author, & educator

Michael Robinson is a multidisciplinary visual artist and creative director who's practice fuses ancient forms of visual communication with modern technologies. His forward thinking approach toward the media ecosystem explores the history of mark making, myth making, and how shared experiences can transform the personal into the communal. 

Robinson's Brooklyn based design studio focuses on work for artists, musicians, fashion designers, performance as well as various brands and cultural institutions. Through bold typography and striking imagery, he creates experiences that speak to the originality of visionary clients. He is also an adjunct professor at Parsons School of Design, twice nominated for excellence in teaching.  Robinson also independently lectures about art, design, creative leadership and exhibits at various conferences, festivals, workshops and retreats.
