Michelle Gutmann

Creative Director + Founder

Since I was a little girl, I’ve loved creating beautiful things and helping others. Having lived in seven U.S. states and Germany, I’ve drawn inspiration from diverse people doing interesting and innovative things around me.

For the past 16 years I’ve spearheaded brand identities for national and global brands in the lifestyle, wellness, creative and empowerment realms, partnering with authors, coaches, wellness experts and mission-driven organizations.

Why do I do what I do?
In 2010, my life was rocked in the most profound way. Cancer became my catalyst for change when I lost my husband to an aggressive form of lymphoma cancer. I decided to use life’s challenges as opportunities to grow and finally embrace my entrepreneurial spirit, striving to help companies catalyze the good in the world. My own design studio was born out of a quest to create beauty for a purpose, promoting heart-driven brands commited to positive change.

Prior to the creation of Me for We Design, I worked at successful design agencies, leading creative projects for Pardee Homes, W Hollywood, Souplantation and PGA Golf Tour. I graduated from the University of Delaware’s life-changing Visual Communications program with a focus in Advertising, Graphic Design and Photography.

 

Eric Watanabe

As the ultimate team player, Eric uses an array of divergent skills, such as brand design, idea generation, logo design, design production, photography and copywriting, to bolster the Me for We team. After 20 years of experience in traditional print design and digital media, the diversity of his work reveals the ability to apply his creative skills in innovative ways that elevate brand and design solutions for our clients.

With his most recent commitment to work with charitable and non-profit organizations, Eric is the perfect fit for your and our team’s goal to make a positive impact in our community and the world.

She currently resides in Chicago with her husband and their two adorable kids, Isaac and Adele.

Tailor Our Team

As a small team working virtually, we deliver big. We scale our team by partnering with trusted and like-minded photographers, copywriters, developers, SEO experts and creatives to deliver everything you need to succeed. This is the most cost effective way to get big agency execution on a smaller budget scale.

Oliver

Oliver is a German Shorthair Pointer and takes his job very seriously. He alerts us when it’s time to step away from our computers to enjoy a good walk outside. You can find him napping in the sun, hunting lizards and greeting clients with wiggles. He’s refined, yet filled with unconditional love and a bit of goofiness.
