Mike Amato

Digital Designer


Mike graduated from The Illinois Institute of Art in Schaumburg where he studied Graphic Design, but in reality he learned how to visually bring ideas to life. He’s an experienced designer, but the key to his skills is his design credo, borrowed from the late Thomas J. Watson of IBM who said, “Follow the path of the unsafe, independent thinker. Expose your ideas to the danger of controversy.”

As TG’s Digital Designer he uses this unique perspective to fuel his work. He treats brand ideas as the foundation for every project, then helps clients push their own boundaries by exposing them to new ideas and concepts. Mike continues to educate himself on the latest graphic design trends so we can always expect him to bring something new to the table.

When he’s not designing Mike enjoys reading up on movies and learning new cooking skills so we can all enviously eye his meal on our lunch break.
