About Mike Jones
Fearless leader? Head honcho? Boss man? Whatever we call him around the office, Mike is the tip of spear at Resound. He’s a professional brand junkie who excels at strategic thinking and execution to help clients’ brands become remarkable. His well-rounded content, design, and development background allows him to “talk the talk” because he’s “walked the walk”. Sometimes you don’t find that at the top, so Mike’s a leader who truly understands what it takes to get the job done right. If you ask him about his road to the top, he’ll tell you:
“I wear a lot of hats. I have always enjoyed designing systems and graphics – even from an early age – with legos, markers, words, and basic computer graphics programs (you remember MS Paint?). Then I was introduced to Adobe Photoshop in high school and graphic design became my passion. Over the last 10 years I’ve transitioned from production design to creating holistic strategies and marketing systems for brands.
After significant stints at several direct marketing and digital marketing agencies, in 2009, I started Resound with two very creative and smart friends – David and Jeff. Our vision: help organizations find their unique identities and communicate them to the world. Since then, we’ve built Resound into a growing team of designers, marketing strategists, and web developers. We’ve helped dozens of companies and non-profits tell their stories through brand identity, digital marketing, and web development. We’ve even collected some kudos along the way.”
Mike was named one of Arizona’s top 35 entrepreneurs under the age of 35 by the Arizona Republic in 2014. He is a member of AIGA (the professional association for design), Founder Society, Conscious Capitalism Arizona, and Local First Arizona. Mike is serving as organizer of 2019’s Startup Week PHX event. He’s has also spoken on branding and marketing at Texas Tech University, ASU, WordCamp PHX, Scottsdale Community College, and several local Arizona high schools.
