WHO AM I?
Who am I? Well, my name is Mike Saputo. I guess you could call me an Illustrative Designer. An Illustrigner. A Desator. Pixel Pusher. Ink slinger. Hoarder of beer. Whatever. Listen to your heart.
I'm a product of the Motor City – now based in metro Chicago. Growing up it was Kiss, Run D.M.C., Horror and Sci-Fi movies, Kaiju, fast cars, heavy weapons, sports logos and toys. Today it's taking those sensibilities and illustrating and designing records, CD's, rock posters, logos and merchandise for a wide variety of emerging and established artists – from Eminem to Slayer.
I also have 15 years of agency experience developing packaging, logos, POP & retail displays for large brands from Kellogg's to Jack Daniels to Wilson.
I live in a house with my wife, 3 daughters, 1 Shepard, 2 cats, 4 fish, and an occasional skunk...who know they're not welcome but whom visit anyways.
