Work History

MICHAEL B. CAMPER 16284 Brewster Road / Cleveland Heights, OH 44112 P: 248.252.9991 E: AuraCodeStudio@gmail.com PERSONAL PROFILE I am an energetic and personable design team member with 10 plus years of experience. Additionally, over my career, I have enthusiastically embraced various design instructor appointments at both the high school and college level. As my design career progresses, I continue to rediscover personal reward through assisting or volunteering in the creative and professional development of other artists and designers. With passion and commitment, my perspectives and abilities with design continue to grow. Through research and collaboration I continue to seek ways of making a difference in the world of design. Whether working alone or taking a lead position on a design assignment, I enjoy learning new things as well as discovering and applying great solutions to problems that will enhance and distinguish a brand, service or experience.
