MICHELE OCA

Founder, Chief Creative Director, Entertainment Center Designer

Lead Designer at US Design Lab, LLC

With over twenty years of experience working with public and private companies in several countries and multiple industries, Michele Oca is an accomplished designer whose versatile abilities span effortlessly from tiny projects to multi-national enterprises.

As a branding expert Michele can easily connect with both large corporations executives as well as small business owners to translate their business design needs into reality, to put on paper all that they know they want but don’t know how to achieve. His approach is always result-oriented: the goal is to help customers to improve their market penetration, increase sales, see their business grow. From branding creation to product/project design, Michele has worked with hundreds of businesses, helping each of them reach their branding goals, bringing added value to their image and changing the perception of the market towards them and their products.

Since his first steps into the design world in Italy, throughout his eclectic career worldwide, Michele has acquired the ability to look at things from a different perspective and offer creative and effective answers to a variety of design needs. With a uniquely qualified international design background, he can translate retail, hotel and entertainment facility needs into universal design solutions. Whether he’s working at restyling a hotel in Italy, designing a new line of footwear in China, envisioning a “home” bowling alley for the White House, adding new features to a custom-built theme park attraction in the USA or giving the finishing touch to waterworks elements in Russia, Michele’s approach is always open, original and definitely different.

International background

All our knowledge has its origins in our perceptions. – Leonardo da Vinci

From its initial conception in Italy over 20 years ago, USDESIGNLAB has learned the value of multicultural experience in looking at things from a different perspective in order to offer creative and effective answers to multiple design needs.
This is the key to what we do.
With uniquely qualified international resources, we translate multicultural needs into universal design solutions.
From REthinking our customers’ approach to communication, to REstyling their products’ or company image, to REcreating the way they are perceived by the public, at USDESIGNLAB we take every single task personally and provide one-of-a-kind solutions, custom made for each individual job.

Think (and REthink) out of the box

You must be the change you wish to see in the world. – Mahatma Gandhi

No matter the task – either we are restyling a vending machine in Italy, designing a new line of footwear in China, envisioning a “home” bowling alley for the White House, adding new features to a custom-built theme park attraction in the U.S., or adding the finishing touch to a sounds and lights fountain in Russia, our approach is always open and unbiased and most definitely-distinctive.
At USDESIGNLAB the first priority is not how big your budget is, but rather how challenging is your project. Crazy deadlines also add spice to our creativity: if nobody else can do it in time, we will.

Brand & product design, website design, brand restoration

Why fit in when you were born to stand out? – Dr. Seuss

Sometimes, all it takes to improve the perception of a product and boost up sales is just a subtle change, like a new label or a catchy name. Other times a more massive change is advisable to reposition a company’s s standing in its respective market. Either way, USDESIGNLAB can offer simple, cost-effective advice to

  • “beautify” an existing brand or design a new one
  • re-style a company’s image or improve its perception in a specific setting like a trade show, convention, or meeting
  • improve product appearance
  • design a company website or – with the help of our business partners – increase its presence in the media
  • design or re-design your store layout with custom made furniture and architectural features
  • create your event’s layout in any venue
