The Awesome Work of Michael Heald

We all have our favorite designers. One of my favorite designers happens to be Michael Heald, the founder of Fully Illustrated. Michael Heald is an award winning graphic and web designer. He has won multiple awards, as well as being featured in some top web and graphic design magazines.
