Michael Hagel

A little about me.

Part strategist, part designer, I help create innovative solutions by blending high-level business analysis with user-centered design principles to enable meaningful collaboration between businesses and their customers.

Basically, I create digital experiences that deliver results.

I’m the Founding Principal, Design Director at Maybe.For.You, an Atlanta based digital agency focused on custom web and mobile applications. Founder, Director of Product Design at EventBooth, a platform which allows people to shoot, manage, and share event photos. And the Founder, Director of Product Design at Rooftop, a platform which improves communication and engagement for organizations. I've also worked as an instructor at the Creative Circus, published a thing or two, spoken on multi-platform design, and have advised/mentored several startup organizations. Before that I started my career in the trenches of the advertising world.

Outside the office, you can find me relaxing with my beautiful wife, Erica, and two boys - Cameron & Mattox. I’m also an avid motorsports fan, Driving Coach for AMCI at the Porsche Experience Center, leisure boater, cigar & whiskey lover.

A few of the brands I've worked with.
