We’ve brought in some major talent…

The faces behind our powerful real estate marketing success!

Jon Murphy – Creative Director

Jon, originally from Massachusetts where he was a brand manager for the major sporting goods brand, Puma, joined Maximum almost 6 years ago. Recently promoted to Creative Director, he is the award-winning brand visionary for many of our clients including: WindRiver in Knoxville, TN; The Grove in College Grove, TN; and Helms Port in Wilmington, NC. Jon has a very strong attention to detail and understands that branding has to evoke emotions and action from its target audience. His passion is web and mobile design, print design, environmental design and motion graphics.

Jesse Jones – Senior Designer

Jesse is a North Carolina native that we lured back from New York City where he has worked for the last 11 years as a graphic artist and brand manager for such major bands as J. Crew and Loehmann’s. As Senior Manager of Internet Production with J.Crew, Jesse focused on maximizing user experience and conversion across mobile platforms. Jesse has a wonderful eye for corporate and community branding, logo design, web, mobile and digital design and video editing. As an additional creative expression, Jesse is a stand-up comic. This is a talent we are trying to tie into our annual budget reviews with our clients.

Mike Münch – Creative Projects & Account Manager

Mike is also a North Carolina native and brings an amazingly diverse set of talents to the Maximum team.  Mike is an accomplished photographer with degrees in Photographic Technology, Film Studies & English. He is a talented copywriter, graphic designer and organizational master. Most recently, Mike worked as Creative Director for a gift and clothing wholesaler. Mike’s creative background along side his professional approach allows him to switch quickly from graphic support to account management. This means our clients get answers, options and updates immediately—a key to Maximum’s success and longevity.
