Hi, I'm Michelle Sue Agee

I'm a user experience and visual designer with 3+ years of end-to-end experience creating digital products and facilitating  community building events.

Working with an integrated team is where I thrive. I enjoy the strategic aspect of design where I work to elevate the overall customer or community experience.

Currently, I'm a product designer at 2U.

Chalk mural for Poetic's office

In Q1 of the 2020 year, my schedule was empty. My boss asked me to reimagine the out-dated art in our office.

Unsure how to start, I dragged my feet in January.  I saved lettering ideas and murals for inspiration and began sketching ideas.  Feeling very rusty in my graphic design skills, I wanted to create a something simple and forgiving  - this was going up on a wall after-all! I spent a week and a half comping a few designs in illustrator before we landed on the final piece.

After a Thursday of working  in-office, we cleared the space and used a small projector to outline and trace the design onto the wall. I think we spent about 2.5 hours that evening then I came early Friday to finish the piece and surprise the other Poets.
Our hope was the wall would be updated quarterly, but the office transitioned to work from home a few weeks after the piece went up.
