Recommendations:
“Michael developed, designed and created unique web designs for our company back when it was a much more difficult task to do. I was always impressed with his creative, artistic and listening skills while working with him.” ~ Timothy Butler Founder & CEO, SiteScape, Inc.

“Michael did a great job developing graphics for our site that reflected our brand(s). We would certainly recommend him to friends and other business owners!" ~ Joe Maggio, Owner Maggio Shields Real Estate Brokerage & Cafe' and Co Owner Aqua Grill.

"I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Michael Sprouse as a friend and media colleague for more than a decade. Michael’s affable personality and creative energy as an artist, graphic designer and public relations specialist are a delight. I would wholeheartedly recommend him for any project involving a high level of creativity, loads of positive energy and the ability to meet deadlines.~ Jen Ellingsworth - Cape Gazette Associate Editor

I have known Michael for close to 20 years as a coworker, employee and friend. His work ethic and creativity have always been something that I and others have depended on all that time. I sincerely endorse him for any digital design project...he will always create something wonderful. ~ Chip Venters CEO, ContentDeliveryAds, Inc.

I had the pleasure of working with Michael Sprouse for a company called Deskgate Technologies, Inc. and then M2Direct, Inc. for approximately a two year period ending in 2001. Michael and I worked in a production team of graphic artists, web programmers and software technicians that produced images and content for our software product. In this group, I served as the production manger and Michael was our creative director. Michael worked closely with members of the team in a fast paced and deadline oriented environment to produce countess high quality images of all kinds. In this challenging and sometimes hectic atmosphere, Michael always exhibited excellent interpersonal skills which included the ability to teach, coach and mentor the other members of the group. During this time, Michael not only displayed tremendous creative ability, his technical skills in working with software tools such as Adobe Photoshop and Dreamweaver were second to none. He always did a great job of helping other members of the team with the finer points of the software, including myself. I learned most of what I know about digital images , HTML coding and CSS layout from Michael. In addition to these skills, Michael brings something else to the table which is, in my opinion, very difficult to find. He is a true artist with many years of creating original and commercially successfully paintings to his credit. As a fine artist, Michael naturally has a deep knowledge of color theory and image composition which allows him to efficiently produce a wide variety of images in various genres. Therefore, he can produce excellent "mainstream" graphics for business-oriented customers as well as stunning cutting edge images for more esoterically inclined customers. In my opinion, the personal attributes and profession skills described above make Michael the total package. I would strongly urge anyone considering Michael for a professional position to hire him immediately. You will be glad you did!
~ Barry Phillips Director of Operations DigitalContainers, Inc.

When I opened a gallery I not only asked Michael to create the logo for my new business but asked him to be the first artist to show in my space. Michael is incredibly creative and responsive to the requirements of the job at hand whether creating a logo or a commissioned piece of art." ~ Clare Maron Owner/Curator Monkitree Gallery of Art, Gardiner, Maine
