I LOVE WHAT I DO
I love what I do: listening to you, the client, and finding the unique, visual language for your project. Think of me as storyteller and problem solver, using the tools of graphic design, motion design, and branding in service to your message. The results will be conceptually driven, dynamic and engaging animations that will capture your audience.
I’m a creative director, illustrator, and motion designer with over 20 years experience designing and animation for broadcast and corporate clients. There have been some awards along the way for which I am honored and grateful for the opportunity. With a BFA From the Massachusetts College of Art and Design in illustration I continue to create my own art which I think gives my digital work a richness in color and dimension. As part of your team I will bring my talents and relaxed confident manner to the success of your next project.
Testimonials From Some Nice People
“PRODUCED ABOVE AND BEYOND WHAT I IMAGINED”
Trusting a partner to work on executive level deliverables, there are always trepidations. However, working with Michael he put all those worries to rest immediately. From our first brainstorm, he took my sketches and translated them into amazing motion graphics. Through multiple rounds, he quickly gained trust in our team and we kept giving him more and more! He produced above and beyond what I imagined. Best of all, his work wowed my executives. I would not hesitate working with Michael and will continue to for many years to come.

“KEENLY UNDERSTANDS WHAT YOU’RE GOING FOR”
Creative is about experimentation and taking some chances. The difficult part about providing creative direction is that if they take you too literally, and you’re working to be original, it may not work. This is where Michael is amazing. He keenly understands what you’re going for and delivers something you didn’t expect. And if it isn’t working, he is very amenable to get it to where it needs to be. His art makes you look like a genius. I highly recommend working with him.

“TAKES IDEAS IN FANTASTIC NEW DIRECTIONS”
Mike Mullen has created truly inspiring and memorable broadcast graphics for all the PBS specials I’ve produced; his’ work has been an integral element of some of the most successful fundraising specials that PBS has aired. Michael is a great combination: incredibly imaginative and happily down-to-earth! He listens, and takes ideas in fantastic new directions. I recommend him wholeheartedly!

“GIVES ME A HUGE COMFORT LEVEL”
“I have worked with Michael Mullen since 2003. He was described to me as the “McGyver of animation” and he does not disappoint. Michael is a talented designer and animator who is fun to work with and a wonderful problem-solver. He is relentless in his quest for perfection and always delivers on time. Working with Michael gives me a huge comfort level — Daniel and I can give him the specs of a project and he just makes it happen!”
Rosemary Flannery, Consulting Graphics Producer, Sundance Channel Marketing
“GETS IT” AND CAN DELIVER ON TIME”
“We actually feel that you’re giving us a gift every time you give us a good deal on high-end GFX. There is really no better friend a small shop like ours can have than a quality graphics person who “gets it” and can deliver on time and under our (sometimes sparse) budgets. We’re grateful for that.”
