Hey, I'm mikias (Mickey). Student at the University of Washington studying Informatics (specializing in Human Computer Interaction) and minoring in Digital arts. I love designing things that can help people at the interpersonal level and creatively solve their problems.

I’m an open-minded guy with an unconventional approach to design. My creative approach—no matter the medium—is to find points of tension behind the idea I’ve been assigned or am interested in. I do several iterations on each point and usually end up refining the one I find most controversial. I never limit myself to just one creative field - always pushing to design anything and explore new boundaries. I’m constantly evolving, learning and growing so you can expect that working with me is going to be a fun and exciting ride.


In my spare time I enjoy

  • Brainstorming on new ideas and quickly sketching them out
  • Learning new prototyping skills and refining the ones I already have
  • Reading the design thinking process of budding designers on Medium
  • Getting inspired by projects on Behance, Dribble, and Instagram
  • Playing and watching soccer with friends (Manutd Fan)
  • Listening to music and updating my design Spotify playlist
Thanks for your time! I've received your submission and will get back to you soon.
