In the 14 years since forming Aprile Graphics, Radius Art Director Michael Joseph Aprile has split his time between commercial projects and magazine design. He has done work for many of the region’s top lifestyle publications, but as he likes to say, “When you find something you love, you never actually ‘work’ another day in your life.” A Jersey boy through and through (he grew up in neighboring Elizabeth), Michael jumped at the chance to make a difference in Newark. He claims to have eaten at almost every restaurant Radius has covered in its first three issues; the rest go on his bucket list.

Michael will soon be starting his third decade as a graphic designer, and has worked for many of the top publications in the region. Michael opened his own design firm in 2000 and since then has come to understand that once you find something you love, you never actually work another day in your life."

"The Performance" issue
"One year ago, Michael Joseph Aprile came aboard as Designer Director of EDGE and assumed the daunting challenge of recasting Trinitas Regional Medical Center's lead publication as a sophisticated lifestyle magazine. The result speaks for itself, cover-to-cover. Along with design cohort Rob Steffens, Michael has given EDGE a "Wow Factor" that has competing publications playing catch-up. Yeah, good luck with that!"
