Mike has been designing graphics and developing websites since 2005. His roots as a musician, writer, and filmmaker lent a natural path to creating visual marketing assets for others. At its core, excellent design comes from a passion to make things look beautiful and an ability to communicate a clear message. Mike’s background in the creative arts and the practical application of visual design bring the much-needed balance of form and function to each Surber Creative project.
