M2 is a collective of artists specializing in design, motion graphics, CGI and animation. Our company houses a key senior staff of seasoned artists/designers, motivated by a passion to push the boundaries of creative and technical possibilities.
The company was born from the growing need of our clients to have access to a superb “In-house” graphics department without the cost of recruitment and equipment. We can work remotely, or provide the right equipment on location. We don’t have a posh reception area or a 24-hour kitchen (although we don’t mind if you do). Instead, we have low overhead, allowing us to keep our pricing relevant and competitive. Our objective is to facilitate the graphics process and make sure our clients get the best product as efficiently as possible.

After graduating with a degree in Digital Video Production from Macomb Community College, Jeremy was given an opportunity to work for a small production company in Chicago as a video editor. He worked with a number of high profile clients including Bank of America, Mike’s Hard Lemonade, and the Shedd Aquarium. After a year of growing in the field of production, he felt a need to get back to his roots as a motion designer. He moved back to Michigan to join our team, as we saw great value in his expert knowledge of editing, design and production skills. At M2, we consider him a Motion Graphics Guru, and our head of video production. He's our jack of all trades, and an asset to company.
