Client Focus: Creating magic moments
Mitch grew up in Boise, then moved to the University of Oregon to earn his webbed-feet degree in design and advertising. His emphasis at Oliver Russell is conceiving and executing visual solutions for interactive, print and motion graphics projects. He has served as lead designer on the U.S. Olympic Track & Field Team trials and has a special affinity for creating craft beer identity and packaging.
What was the first concert you ever attended?
The American Idol Season 2 tour. Nuff said.
What is one fact about you that people find surprising?
I strongly dislike mint gum and other mint products, with the exception of Peppermint Altoid Smalls and mint ice cream. Mint dental products make me cringe.
If you could time travel, would you go to the past or the future?
The past. I have an unrealistic nostalgia for the 1920s and 30s when people worked with their hands and wore fancy clothes. I’d like to go check it out for myself. I’ll see the future later.
Tell us about your favorite cause.
Big Brothers Big Sisters is definitely up there on my list. They’re not saving the world or making macro change, they’re just making sure that every kid knows someone cares about them. And that’s awesome.
Being a Big is a blast—I’d recommend it to almost everyone.
Favorite breakfast food?
I prefer mostly non-breakfasty foods for breakfast…cold pizza, chicken and waffles, left-overs of any kind.
Would you rather ride a bike, a horse or a motorcycle?
Probably a bike. I get satisfaction out of doing things under my own power. Plus it’s fun.
I don’t know how to ride a horse or a motorcycle. But I should learn. That would be fun too.
Do you have pets?
I have a BBSP (big black standard poodle) with inappropriate eating habits. He teaches me about responsibility… and letting things go.
What’s worth fighting for?
I think relationships with people are worth fighting for. It can be so easy to let them slip away or dissolve, but it’s usually worth the energy to maintain and build. With few exceptions, most people have great intentions. Breakdowns usually happen in the communication part.
