Ross Matthews, Content Strategist

Mic is a highly motivated individual with a wide-range of creative skills sets, from print to web to video and animation. His extensive experience allows him to tackle and creative project from seemingly any direction.

Eric Gradberg, Designer

I joined Mic on a large web application project and he was ready with designs that were creative and well thought out. When working with a designer it is important to me that they understand the technical as well as the look and feel; Mic delivered both.

Kris Hadlock, Owner of Summus

If there's one thing that Mic will not sacrifice, it's workmanship and artistic style. Mic continues to land the highest-profile creative work around. He is forthcoming, personable, and his creative ability is extremely motivating.

Marlon Velasco, Web & Mobile Developer

I worked with Mic on several B2B projects in the last couple of years. His creative designs where innovative and used office products as art, which introduced a completely new approach to the industry. He followed this up with executing several new design templates for our collateral, which is still used today. Mic is an excellent creative asset.

Art Direction

One of the most difficult problems that art directors face is to translate desired moods, messages, concepts, and underdeveloped ideas into imagery.

Branding

A brand is a symbolic embodiment of all the information connected to a company, product or service.

Responsive Web Design

The process of conceptualization, planning, modeling, and execution of electronic media content delivery via Internet in the form of technologies cross-platform.

3D

Use of a collection of points in 3D space, connected by various geometric entities such as triangles, lines, curved surfaces, etc.

Video / Motion

The term “motion graphics” has the potential for less ambiguity than the use of the term “film” to describe moving pictures in the 21st century.

Front-end Design

The design process relating to the front-end (client side) design of a website including writing mark up.

MIS·SION [mish-uhn] –noun

1. a summary describing the aims, values, and overall plan of an organization or individual.
2. the business with which such a group is charged.
MY MISSION … I thrive on showcasing my talents in any imaginable combination. Whether it\\\’s modeling a package design in 3D, showing a client the idea of seeing an object in space as a whole, is better then rendering a 2D image and saying, “visualize this in 3D space”, or as simple as adapting a slide presentation into a 20 second bright and energetic animation filled with movement and explosions of life that is both visually enjoyable and exciting to watch. Regardless, you will get nothing but top notch service when it comes to my work!

VI·SION [vizh-uhn] –noun

1.the act or power of sensing with the eyes; sight.
2.the act or power of anticipating that which will or may come to be: prophetic vision.
VISION … Many people mistake vision statement for mission statement. The Vision describes a future identity and the Mission describes why it will be achieved. A Mission statement defines the purpose or broader goal for being in existence or in the business. It serves as an ongoing guide without time frame. The mission can remain the same for decades if crafted well. Vision is more specific in terms of objective and future state. Vision is related to some form of achievement if successful.Mine is to strive to be the best possible person I can be, and at the same time fully develop into the strongest potentially creative person I can be. Take a look around, I hope you enjoy the site.
