Michael McDermott

Assistant Professor @ George Mason University

I am an educator and designer currently teaching in the School of Art at George Mason University. Before switching to academia full-time, I worked at the General Design Co. in Washington DC on branding and identity projects for a wide variety of clients creating both print and digital pieces. As an Assistant Professor at Mason I teach Motion Design, Intro to Web Design, Typography and History of Graphic Design while continuing to work in the field.

I graduated in 2011 with a Bachelor of Architecture from Virginia Tech and then in 2015 with an MFA in Graphic Design from the Rhode Island School of Design. As I refine my academic focus, I am currently interested in how the interactions and experiences of everyday life can translate into digital spaces.
