Hi, I'm Michael Ernst. I have over 20 years experience leading design at early stage startups with a focus on user experience, brand identity, and art direction.
I am an all-around curious human who enjoys telling stories and solving complex problems through design. I stay busy finding fun, grassy spots for my dog to scritch, searching for my next favorite book, and discovering new music. Formerly Lead Designer at Soothe, Fountain, Giftly and Yelp. Currently focused on leadership and management, product strategy, process, and user experience as Lead Designer at Daylight.
