Hello and welcome! My name is Mike Hosier, I’m a Sr. Graphic Designer and the owner/operator of MWH Design. MWH is my pocket-sized, #DogCrazy design studio located on the outskirts of Saratoga Springs in upstate, NY. My mission is to become a valued design partner for my clients, someone they can call upon for one-off design projects like a business card or brochure, as well as long-term projects like building and maintaining an entire brand identity, internet marketing campaigns, websites, and more. The clients I work with tend to be passionate about their business and work with me as I share their passion, they’re generally small to mid-sized businesses consisting of independent professionals, service-based companies, B2B, brands & product manufacturers, and non-profits.
While MWH is a one-man business at the core, I partner a few independent specialists spread across the US whos services compliment mine. My team and I value the remote work culture, it enables us to collaborate on projects in a setting we’re most inspired and most productive—in the mountains or in the city—we thrive off the freelance lifestyle and believe our work is better for it.
Yes, MWH is Dog Crazy, but what in the world does that mean? Being Dog Crazy means you’re a bit wacky about your furry friends. Also though, you choose to live an adventurous life, whatever that may be, doing what you love with dogs at your side. Furthermore, Dog Crazy is a metaphor which means to be true to yourself and listen to your heart. To do the things you care deeply about and do them to the best of your ability. It might also mean your work/living spaces are covered in dog hair, but that doesn’t bother you.
It’s the Dog Crazy philosophy that inspired me to venture out on my own over 15 years ago and still drives me today. MWH Design was born out of passion, a passion to create, to help other professionals promote their own passions, and to work with my four-legged friends at my side just about anywhere in the world—as long as there’s cell service and a solid wifi signal that is.
When I’m not helping others grow their businesses, you might find my dogs and I exploring nature with a camera. Wandering in the wild helps to recharge my batteries and inspire creativity. Check out my Instagram for photos from our adventures.
Over the past few years, I’ve discovered other folks who share same the Dog Crazy philosophy through social media. This has opened my eyes to a whole new world which inspired a side passion project, my Dog Crazy sticker shop! My new shop features custom designed adventure dog stickers and collaborations with other dog crazy folks. This new venture has been a ton of fun and I encourage you to check it out.
