Hi, my name is Mike,


At MikeAdv, I am a digital designer (ACP) Adobe Certified Professional, and  Unsplash contributor based in Boston, MA. I have been an Adobe user since 1999, skilled in retouching, branding, and web development, I am capable of creating different kinds of graphics and wireframes for websites and apps. Therefore, I consider myself a link between the attractive design and detailed, user-friendly web development.

My concept design consistently arises from analyzing customer needs to achieve "out of the box" goals. At MikeAdv, I always want to leave my clients with something unique and exciting.

After collaborating with many graphic design agencies as a senior designer, I finally achieved my goal. That was to improve my role and to become Art Director of M.A Food & Beverage Marketing Promotion, consulting adverting agency. Here, I created vectorial assets for the best companies involved in the Italian food industry. This includes supermarket chains restaurants and manufactures.

Thanks to my experience with typography and photography in 2020, I have been involved in realizing the last issue of the Bostonian magazine "Scene Magazine." This is where I met the Executive Producer of Style Boston Tv who I still work with, as a digital content creator.

Currently, along with MikeAdv, I am the creative director and partner designer for the Boston Video Production Company, Sound and Vision Media. I take care of  graphic design,  photo shooting, retouching, uploading, and creating new "killer content" for social media campaigns. I also specialize in SEO, editing, and website development.

Please take a look at my portfolio, and don't forget to share! If you have any questions, call us at (617)583-5077. I hope to hear from you soon!

Mike is fantastic at what he does and works to create the best and perfect product every time. I have had the opportunity to learn from him and he has been the perfect teacher and mentor. He always strives for the best quality at whatever he works on and he does not settle for anything less than stellar.

He is just the best teacher you could ask for, he really pushes you and gets the best results, it's amazing what you are able to do when the teacher knows his job, and knows how to guide you, it takes a pro to make a pro.
