Mike Javor

About

Javor is a former "Big Agency" Creative Director that got back into the game of boutique digital craftsmanship. Educated on the mean streets of code markup, ECMA scripting, and timeline animation − refined in the conference rooms of global brand marketing managers. Javor’s 12 years on the front lines and back end of digital marketing have led to award-winning work across the gamut of consumer categories and channels. Most recently, he directed digital creative initiatives and production for mcgarrybowen's Chicago office. He lives like a loner, fights like a professional, and loves like there's no tomorrow.
