ABOUT MICHAEL VIVARELLI

HOBART, TASMANIA

WHO

G'day I'm Michael, a local designer and creative from Hobart. This site is a preview of my creative and professional visual design work. Through this work I have developed a diverse range of styles, skillsets and capabilities that have exceeded client needs.

WHAT

My passion, drive and excitement comes from purposefully developing and creating experiences that connect people emotionally functionally and aesthetically. I also love the possibilites that new technology, techniques and knowledge bring to working in the creative industry.

WHY

I believe in summary that I am naturally dedicated to working and developing my passion and love for creativity across a wide range of mediums.
As I've grown as a creative, I have developed an underlining love and appreciation for visual art, art-direction in film and multimedia and I strive to be part of world-class work and innovation in these areas.

I have current interests in the possibilities of VR and Experience Design and I believe creative techniques can be used to enhance and innovate new products and uses. Over the past year I have been creating artwork that explores using Immersive Technology to expand physical paintings into digital media productions. I am currently working on a multimedia installation artwork under a arts grant with Salamanca Arts Centre to explore these possibilities further.

ABOUT MICHAEL VIVARELLI

Experience

PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

I’ve been working as a freelance designer, or employee across print manufacturing, graphic design and web design. These positions have given me a fantastic variety of design, business and industry experience. My recent clients and employers reflect that I work for leading Tasmanians across the fields of education, community, arts and business innovation.

I have a strong focus on local community work and undertaken personally rewarding work within the disability sector and running design workshops through Colony 47 Backswing youth program which initiates self-directed local community ad campaigns created by the youth groups.

VOLUNTEER | INTERNSHIP EXPERIENCE

To gain professional experience I’ve volunteered with local and international organisations, completing projects with Anglicare, Colony47 Backswing - Youth Employment Program, Edge Radio and a six-month internship with the Salamanca Arts Centre as an exhibition coordinator. I’ve also had work experience and mentoring for UX/UI design. These were with prominent Tasmanian specialists and Business Directors, Dave Sherring (Owner Director of Handbuilt Creative) and Glen Johnson (former Digital Director of Red Jelly).

COMMERCIAL - DIGITAL WORK

In the last 2-3 years, I have been working in Web Design through professional freelance work with KingsDesign and Tempus Innovative Solutions. These have involved designing and developing websites for local businesses. My digital skills are strong across multimedia, which includes video, sound and photography. I’ve completed graphic illustration and digital artwork for International companies such as AFC (Asian Football Confederation) and Intellysurf (a French-based game software company).

COMMERCIAL - PRINT WORK

Throughout my study, I worked in print manufacturing with Saunders Signs (signwriting) and The Works Printing Group (industrial screen printing). These gave me practical first-hand knowledge of industrial printing. I also worked in design formatting and publishing at Ricoh Business Centre and Snap Printing. These gave me solid foundations working with smaller jobs, customer communication and tight deadlines.
