About the Founder

This is me – Michelle. Founder of Squark Design. 

As long as I can remember I have always loved art and design. My most treasured possession as a child was my yellow Crayola set. I took great care of it and nothing was ever out of place.

I would spend hours just drawing pictures. As I grew up, that interest progressed into designing album covers.​ Design took me to a world of imagination that made me happy and fulfilled.

As a teenager I went to college and progressed my passion, studying art and design, sculpture, graphic design and photography. I loved to experiment with all the different materials and styles and learn about different artists. I had a few favourites who inspired me but I always kept coming back to Salvador Dali. His unusual perspective on life made me feel it was OK to think and see things differently.

When I left college I started a career in magazine design and landed a job at one of the most prestigious publishing companies in the UK. I worked there for more than 12 years across several famous national and international magazines, marketing and advertising departments.

Eventually though, it was time to move on. Breaking free from the publishing world gave me the chance to start my own business – Squark Design – and a whole new adventure and vision for the future had started.
