Portrait of Michael Naula. The background is downtown Minneapolis.

I’m Michael Naula, a designer who calls Minneapolis my city. Freelancing since 2019, with no intention of ending. I've primary taken roles such as UX designer and graphic designer. This has given me the opportunity to work with a variety of businesses and organizations from different industries like education and health.

Being a designer also means being a design consultant. This is where I specialize in guiding visionary leaders; businesses looking to elevate their web presence and brand.

Projects that require me to diagnose a problem and think critically are what I seek out.


I can list off my interests such as drawing, reading, football, and many more. However, one thing that will never get old is cooking. Cooking is enjoyable for me because it's another way to be creative and share my cooked meals with others. My first job was being a cook. Although very repetitive, the experience led me to my attachment to quesadillas, as it was an appetizer constantly ordered by customers.

Today, quesadillas are a go to answer for most things. An app to watch the football game? Quesadillas! A quick lunch? Quesadillas. To share my obsession, here is my chicken quesadilla recipe. I encourage you to make your own variation from this. Now get cooking!
