I was introduced to Michelle while at Publicis in New York. We needed an Art Director with modern sensibility to define the look and launch of a new Lancôme fragrance. I found her
to be a truly, madly talented visual thinker who explores and discovers surprising, spot-on
solutions, refining to the level of Art. If you’re looking for sharply-honed talent, I wouldn’t
hesitate to recommend her.
Editor-in-Chief, Wallpaper* Magazine
"… During her time at Wallpaper*, Wells succeeded in bringing new premium talent to the magazine, significantly raising the quality of contributors. Her role was pivotal during the redesign, both by nurturing the creative team and by developing ideas for the brand.
Her mature, sophisticated taste and her vast knowledge of the high end photographic world
was invaluable: the standards that she set for the artistic vision of the magazine still survive
after a decade."

We hired Michelle to work with us at MSLO on marketing and in-store pieces for a new product launch. She collaborated a lot of moving parts and lines of approval and produced excellent work. Michelle was able to understand the brand and work with the team seamlessly to ensure the project was delivered on spec, on time, on budget. Michelle was particularly engaged, did a great job directing the photo shoot and stayed with the project to ensure it was completed to very high standards. I would definitely hire her again.

Michelle Wells is the definition of a designer: She solves problems. Whatever the size or scope of the project or the urgency of the deadline, she is meticulous, calm, patient, flexible, and above all, creative. Michelle has a deep sense of organization and time management that is essential to any project, especially when working with an overextended editorial staff. Her considerable intelligence and insight make for a truly rounded collaboration that colleagues in any field will appreciate.
