Hi! I am 

Michael Lee,

and I am crazy about 

user-centred 

solutions.

Based out of Vancouver, BC, Canada, I have a bachelors degree in Industrial Design from Emily Carr University of Art + Design and a background in Chemical-Physics and Forensic Science from Simon Fraser University. In 2014, I've launched my personal design studio during my study at Emily Carr and have since worked with healthcare authorities, independent clients, international companies, and local start-ups from all over the world

As a designer who is crazy about User-Centred Design, I am always looking to design the best (we all know there is no such thing as perfect design) solution for the user(s). Whether it is for residents 70+ y.o. in a long-term-care home seeking for a more home-like environment, or a city looking to promote its arts & culture via BLE iBeacons, I am always excited to ask lots of questions and get to the bottom of the needs of the users. My background in science and research has also helped me to stand out from other designers as I always approach design opportunities with a scientific rigour, which makes me extremely methodical and meticulous. Let's just say I love solving puzzles...and I solve them well!

Throughout my career, I have designed brands, logos, websites, print materials, environmental solutions, product, and UI/UX for local and international businesses with major brand clients such as Coca-Cola, the Centre for Aging and Brain Health Innovation (CABHI) powered by Baycrest, and Providence Healthcare. My designs can be seen in various locations throughout Vancouver, and some are currently undergoing pilot clinical studies at hospitals and long-term-care homes.

Design may be complex, but the process doesn't have to be.

My process.
