Developer Biography

Michael Paganini is the Creative Director for Her Interactive in 2005.

As Creative Director, Mike is responsible for the visual and aural feel of the game. He works directly with the Executive Producer and the Art Director to ensure the integrity of the Nancy Drew property is maintained.

Before Her Interactive, Mike worked as a designer and art lead at Humongous Entertainment and Hulabee Entertainment on such award-winning PC titles as Blue’s Clues ABC Time Activities and Ollo in The Sunny Valley Fair.

In 1995, Mike graduated from Western Washington University with a degree in Graphic Design. Perhaps his greatest collegiate achievement was designing the Jet City Pizza logo, which he now has the honor of seeing 2-3 times a week. He was paid $50 to “design” it and has been since trying to pay upwards of $100 for them to let him finish it. (It was just a comp!)

Mike plays a wide variety of video games, watches an occasional movie, and is alternately overjoyed with/embarrassed of the Seahawks, Sonics and Mariners. Mike summers in Kirkland and winters in Juanita with his two labs, Clyde and Ron, and his lovely wife Aimee.
