Here's the Scoop from Clients Far and Wide:

Gert Garman, Director of the Collaborative Design Center at Valencia College

Graphic Recording, Illustration, hurdles, business

"I’ve had the pleasure of partnering with Mike Werner on projects and he really helps me bring the ideas to life! I first met Mike when I was a Creativity and Innovation Catalyst for the Walt Disney Company. He would fly in and do week-long creative sessions with us in Orlando as well as California. Mike and I worked on a year-long visioning for the Central Florida Expressway Authority. The way he leveraged his auditory skills to hear the words and phrases and bring his spot-on interpretation which brought the vision to life. The elected officials were delighted with the outcome."

Kathy Freyman, VP, Chief Innovation Officer at Inspirien

Capturing Ideas with illustration, graphic facilitation, illustration, safari, butterfly net

"Mike visually captured our year-end board meeting and our members had this to say: 

“I was so engaged with the artist there. He brought the vision and strategy to life and made it fun.” 

“Thank you for taking the board presentations up a notch.” 

“ It’s much more meaningful than just words in a Powerpoint.” 

Jonathan Vehar, VP of products at Dale Carnegie & Assocs.


"Mike creates outstanding work. He has that rare ability to quickly capture the kernel of an idea and render it in seconds (okay, minutes if you want color). I've hired him repeatedly for concept illustrations during ideation sessions, and the flurry of output sparks new ideas, detailed elaboration, and deeper insights. His work helps people understand the concept quickly and completely, and sells the ideas. I plan to hire him again and again." 

Mimi Sherlock, International Flavors & Fragrances

Idea illustrations, gallery, concepts, graphic facilitation

"Mike is simply the best graphic facilitator I have ever worked with. Not only is he gifted with his speedy markers, he is also someone who puts the people around him at ease, and helps to build and contributes to a healthy, creative, and productive environment. I hope to work with Mike again and if you are thinking about hiring Mike- just do it! You will not be disappointed."

Sarah Holly, Brand Manager, Smithfield Foods


"My company had worked with Mike on a few research projects so when an out of the box idea needed execution, he was our first call. Throughout the entire illustration process, Mike's excitement and expertise were off the charts. His illustrations continued to "wow" every member of our team. At the end of the day, he delivered an exceptional product and we would love to work with him in the future."
