Who I Am
Michael Jon Watt | Freelance Graphic Designer, Etsy Shop Owner
I have 20 years experience as a Graphic Designer and Advertising Art Director with clients throughout the U.S. I was lucky to know what I wanted to do from an early age, and spent my formative years studying art, painting, drawing and daydreaming about creative endeavors.
I won my first design studio position at the age of 19 and since then (after a brief stint as a mime – yep you read that right), I have worked professionally in Los Angeles, Detroit, Houston and Nashville.
I am particularly drawn to classic typography and simple, bold graphics. I have a skilled eye for color, with strong conceptual abilities. I’m passionate about the nuances of intelligent design: detail, balance, color, imagery and a compelling message.
I opened my first Etsy Shop in 2010 and now run several e-commerce stores including: 
The Transit Design Shop, which features vintage inspired Word Art, Custom Subway Signs, Farmhouse Signs, and Travel Posters; and Smirkantile, my original collection of Greeting Cards and Gifts. My work has garnered a lot of attention and has been featured in HGTV Magazine, Apartment Therapy, Better Living Through Design, and The Washingtonian, among others.
