I first met Mike (Founder, BrandMatter) at the CEA Line Shows 2012, where he was showcasing some of Outdoor Technology’s newest product offerings. I was immediately struck by how energetic and articulate he was—as he deftly and confidently explained key differentiators to attendees. Curious, I stepped up and had him walk me through their marketing program—which, it turns out, was incredibly creative and well thought through. It also turns out that this work was conceived, copy-written, and executed entirely under Mike’s direction—no small feat. And it is even more amazing given the fact that Mike is such a relatively ‘young gun’ in the industry.

Over the past year, I’ve had a chance to assist Mike in furtherance of a number of branding, product brainstorming, and marketing endeavors. One of Mike’s most endearing talents as a “lead creative” is that he is legitimately open and interested in receiving input from a number of sources, which he then carefully culls in order to make super-smart decisions about how and what to implement moving forward. As any veteran will surely attest, the best creative directors aren’t merely good at coming up with ideas. Rather, they are experts at selecting the BEST idea from a sea of great ideas which have been put up for consideration, and then seeing and steering those ideas through to their ultimate successful fruition.

Watch Mike, and the companies that he leads creative direction for, VERY closely over the coming years. I will make an absolute prediction that they will consistently be winners, growing market share rapidly, with products that increasingly become household names to the consumers they are intended to attract. Mike just “has it”.

I recently had the pleasure of working with Mikie when we were in need of a packaging designer. I reached out to Mikie Via LinkedIn and he responded in a very timely and professional manner. At the time, he was unavailable to work with us on-site, but assured me that he is quite adept at working remotely with clients. After I arranged a call with our Design Director, we agreed that Mikie would be a great fit for the project. Mikie was very easy to work with, providing beautifully executed work within our time frame and budget. I would definitely work with Mikie again.
