has been the creative director of regional magazine Washingtonian
for the past four years. During that time he crafted a bright, engaging, energetic visual identity for the magazine, utilizing lots of bold imagery and creative typography.
Michael recently left his post at Washingtonian
to move on to other projects, and SPD asked him to select 10 of his favorite covers.
"These covers reflect our desire to make our readers smile and get excited," says Michael. "We wanted to surprise them every month when they reached into their mailboxes or walked by the newsstand."
