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.

Heald's work is spectacular. The thing that impresses me about his work is the variety of different styles that he has mastered. Not only is he a master of illustrations, he is a great web designer as well. His web designs are beautiful.
