Mitch Maxson spent two years with a small, traditional marketing firm before leaving to co-create his first interactive development firm (Transgres) after graduating from Purdue University. After two years of sustained growth, Transgres joined MediaSauce to pursue a shared vision of broadband-based integrated communications. Today, as a partner and Creative Director, Mitch has helped grow MediaSauce from 8 employees to more than 50 in just two years. As a constant proponent of “what comes next” and the emergence of audience-centric messaging and broadband connectivity, Mitch’s focus is on understanding individuals and inspiring new ways for them to interact with their world.
With MediaSauce, Mitch has helped develop a side project known as Roster, which allows fans to connect to their favorite celebrities via video games, and traveled coast-to-coast to explore MySpace Friends in “real life” via The Top 8 Tour. On a more regular basis, Mitch can be found preaching the vision of the integration of communication, entertainment, and media while helping clients better understand their audiences and how to connect with them.
