Michael Alan Reed
Art Director - Illustrator - Musician - Composer
Parallel careers in art and music began early on performing professionally and at the same time, providing design work for the family business. Soon leading to on-site management and art direction for multiple outlet locations while also continuing a steady performance schedule of 2-5 shows per week.
Licensing experience and further management roles with the largest U.S. print facility at the time, Sun Co. of Seattle, were combined with time sharing stage and studios with many of the area/era's now renowned musical influences.
Art Direction at Color Graphics Inc. combined with freelance marketing clients that included Anheuser-Busch and Ocean Pacific also marked a musical transition period focusing exclusively on original compositions and recording.
This interest led to Los Angeles where a number of professional opportunities and connections were made involving Art Direction and clients in the entertainment industry.
The growth of client potential inspired the foundation of Reedesign where we look forward to putting our combined talent and experience into your own ideas being realized.
