Michael Christopher Hicks

I am a UX Designer and Illustrator. I provide expert design solutions for organizations to elevate their brands and optimize the user experience of their products and services. As a Designer, I created key components for the Arthritis Foundation, designed for Hexagon AB and led the creation of the United Methodist News Service.

UX is the practice of creating experiences that resonate with users in a tangible way. It’s why some of us pay more to shop at Whole Foods instead of Walmart (especially the Walmart in Southeast Atlanta, yikes)!

I believe that people resonate with a good story; be it a journey through Middle Earth or an online banking application. I am passionately pursuing how to tell better stories, regardless of the medium.

Further, I am a published children’s author and illustrator, who enjoys hot yoga, and consuming pixel art.
