Michael Manwaring has been a San Francisco-based graphic designer for 40 years. His award-winning work included projects such as the history walk for the City of San Jose, Calif.; an interpretive signage project for the San Francisco Art Commission that combines poetry, cultural, and natural history on San Francisco's Embarcadero Promenade; and environmental graphics, color, and retail design for the HP Pavilion.

Michael was profiled in Time Magazine, and his work was featured in the first graphic design exhibition at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. In 2000, Michael received the Allied Professions Award of Excellence from the California Council of the American Institute of Architects.
Michael has taught at the College of Environmental Design at UC Berkeley and Kent State University, and was an Adjunct Professor of Design at the California College of the Arts in San Francisco from 1976 to 2001. From 1991 to 1993, he co-developed and taught, with Suzanne Lacy, Dean of Fine Arts, City as Surface, an interdisciplinary course for artists, architects, and graphic designers.
