About Michael Teel

I was born in Brooklyn, NY. Both my parents were from West Virginia. My father died in a construction accident in 1963 and we were forced to move back to West Virginia.

I went to college at West Virginia State University, then onto The Art Institute of Pittsburgh. After college, I moved to the Washington, DC area, and resided there until 2006.

 

I've worked as a graphic designer for 32 years for several small Advertising and Design firms and one fortune 500 company in the Washington DC area. I'm currently the owner of Teel Design Group, offering logo design and branding, web development, and digital marketing with a focus on businesses, associations, and nonprofit organizations.

I have a great wife of 25 years, 2 daughters that are still at home, and two grown children (adults now) that are making their own mark in the world. I'm now a grandfather nine times over.
