A FOUNDATION YOU CAN BUILD YOUR BRAND ON
I’m Mike Peterson. Thank you for visiting Visionary Design Marketing.
Congratulations! If you’re ready to make your marketing and business dreams come true, you’ve come to the right place.
You’re unlikely to find an individual whose track record of proven success has entirely revolved around the design industry specifically. As a business coach, personal brand specialist and keynote speaker, I have been personally rewarded to see both firms and individuals grow to levels they had not thought possible. My reward is always when I see that “light bulb” moment when you say, “Yes, we did it!” Yes, this can really happen, especially since you’ve already taken the first step simply by landing here on my website.
Your talent is what drives me to create, with you, marketing programs that will elevate you until you soar. It starts with me listening. Intently. It continues with you understanding “who you are” as you fine tune your business. The process culminates when we develop marketing plans that achieve your long-term vision and goals.
Hiring a marketing specialist is the beginning of a lasting relationship. You want someone who will LISTEN. Someone who will work CLOSELY with you, be by your side and conquer every challenge, hold your hand and have your back. Someone who will be as genuinely excited as you with YOUR SUCCESS.
Passion, experience and commitment to brand marketing.
Mike’s extraordinary experience in the design industry makes him a real value to designers and local design businesses. His unique perspective helps you set goals, manage your business, and market and sell your brand in the design industry. His numerous case studies will help you see how you, too, will benefit from a carefully managed and strategic approach to growing your business.
“Who am I” and “What do I stand for”…the answer to these two questions is where all great businesses start. They are questions that all businesses should be able to answer, but, few can. Mike Peterson will take you on a brand identification journey that will help you understand what drives you and your business. This eye opening process will benefit all management and will lead your business in a collective and cohesive manner.
Mike Peterson is a spirited and inspiring keynote speaker in the world of design. His many workshops and seminars are regularly considered the best of show, and attendees leave his talks with a fresh understanding of the topic. Mike “relates” in a way that allows his seminars to connect in a personal manner with the audience. All of Mike’s workshops and seminars are highly interactive and engaging.
Material and content for all seminars comes from personal experience and is provided by leaders in the world of brand marketing and design. Content from industry, universities and governments is included in my seminars.

“I can’t thank you enough for helping to make ADAC’s Digital Day event such a positive experience. The topic you spearheaded is the single most pressing issue our industry is facing and you helped make it a hopeful message”
“Mike’s insights helped me to chart a course for successfully branding my company, B. Pila Design. His brand analysis workshop is an invaluable tool for anyone that is looking to position themselves with clarity and focus in a competitive market. The knowledge and experience that he generously shares made me feel confident that I was truly in the right hands and having this kind of vision is invaluable.”
“Mike spends a lot of time in preparation: learning about our organization, our goals and what our current strategies are. He then puts together a plan that helps us get from where we are to where we want to be…with concrete steps and measurable goals”
“I feel more confident and reassured that I not only found the best person to help me achieve my business goals, I found someone that feels like a team member who is not only in my corner at the present time, but someone who will always make himself available in the future.
