I believe in using social media for social good. And messages that promote social good are heard the loudest when accompanied by solid branding and design.

My name is Mike Lawson and I am a graphic designer, illustrator and brand manager that lives in Oakland, California. I want to take some of the “scary” out of using social media through humor and social media tutorials.

About 20 years ago I started over-sharing on the internet when I made my first webpage (a satirical newspaper used to poke fun at my close circle of friends) and since then have shared my design work and illustrations with millions of people.

My cartoons and design work have been seen in publications like and I currently have worked in marketing and communications for a few years.

My graphic design and branding have been used in different health-related campaigns like Spare A Rose, Save A Child and The Big Blue Test.

Social media is responsible for providing me for some psychosocial support in dealing with a chronic condition. I’m not being hyperbolic when I say, “Facebook saved my life.”

I offer graphic design and social media services as a freelancer and am open to discussing your brand and needs. Read more on the services page.
