Michael is an absolutely stellar UX practitioner and leader — experienced across the entire UCD process. In his time at AKQA, I relied on him to work directly with high-profile clients, drive their business forward, deliver quality work and to be almost entirely self-sufficient. He has an amazingly even temperament and works very well under pressure. I would consider myself very lucky to have him back on the team.
Drew Huddleston, Executive User Experience Director, AKQA.
Michael Delange is a seasoned UX practitioner with quiet authority who I had the pleasure of working with at the BBC. A meticulous designer who always sought to go to the heart of a problem, rather than accept a brief at face value. In many instances Michael’s design solutions would fix problems and fulfil user needs that hadn’t even been clocked, creating satisfying and delightful services of the highest order.
