Meet the creator

Hi! My name is Michael Riddering. I’ve been designing products every day for the past decade. Currently, I’m the founding designer at Maven—a new platform for cohort-based courses.

I love to teach, so I also spend time mentoring others as a design advisor for Shift Nudge—a course specializing in UI design.
