Michelle Shapiro

Michelle Shapiro, Graphic Designer

Michelle Shapiro moved to Tucson from Santa Barbara, California. She knew she would make a lousy Brussels sprout farmer so she went the creative route instead. After working 14 years with The New York Times Media Group, Michelle started her own graphic design agency, Ipso Facto Creative Group and taught multimedia art and design at Santa Barbara City College. What she loves most about working with the AJP, and the JFSA, is being part of “The Big Picture” and contributing to a community whose mission is to better the lives of those around them.
