An uncommonly effective graphic designer

My name is Michael Norcross and I run my practice out of Indy Hall in Old City, Philadelphia. I have been featured in How Magazine, American Illustration and one time I was nominated for a Geek Award. I am the son of a taxi driver. Outside of designing graphics, I enjoy slinging ink and tombstone piledrivers. I also teach at Philadelphia University.


Simple shapes for obtuse ideas. High-contrast. Thick and decisive, bold and iconic, blunt and minimal. A sterling muse smashed to atoms. With respect to the rules, there are no rules.


Posters, logos, branding, apparel, editorial illustration, websites, annual reports, marks, icons, collateral, assets and deliverables that will make you stop in your tracks and take a deep breath.


Prefers to work with creative thinkers, unconventional artists and professional wrestlers.
