About this nerd

Michael Lapp, also known as “miclap” [mic-lapp] is a Motion Graphics artist from Philadelphia, PA working full time at Trellist Marketing and Technology. Michael has earned a BFA in Multimedia at The University of the Arts in center city Philadelphia where he studied motion design and video production.

miclap is a spiritual fast learning generalist with a passion for motion design. If you dont find him in the studio conquering the graph editor, you may find him on the streets of Philadelphia skateboarding or guzzling down a few peach snapples. His friends sometimes just refer to him as ‘Lapple’. That’s enough of me speaking in third person.

I have had the opportunity to work with many talented people over the last couple years including Mastercard, Bank of America, Capital One and Sony. My first real exposure to the design world came to me when I started skateboarding. I take great pride in my reputation as an out-of-the-box thinker and animator. My favorite things in life are problem solving and mobile photos. I love puzzles, and the color creamy orange.
