Strong focus in:
Since his birth in the cultural mecca that is New Orleans, Louisiana, Michael Batiste has been thoroughly introduced to an array of different arts, such as food, music, paint, print, and the like. This introduction then sparked an insatiable appetite and enthusiasm to become a creator in his own right. Since his adolescence, Michael has always maintained an interest in calligraphy and decided to continue to build his knowledge upon that base desire. His desire to better develop his own artistic style landed him placement into his local visual performance arts school, the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts (NOCCA). Beyond his high school matriculation, he attended and later graduated from the Kansas City Art Institute with a Bachelor's Degree in Graphic Design.
Michael Batiste is well-versed in research concept development and unconventional analog methodology. He has a deep passion for branding, package design, and illustration. With this passion comes the understanding that in pursuing this dream of making other people's ideas come to life, he has to remain to be a devout team player and will continue to improve upon an already strong base of communication skills.
