"I'm very happy with my background as a creative," Mevissen says. "It helps give me more understanding of the job—working with other creatives is a lot of fun." Mevissen's work is stylized, crisp and cinematic, often feeling as if a print piece has been afforded an extra dimension—visually, thematically, in motion.

Past work includes MTV promos featuring hapless duo Brad & Eric. He also just debuted a project out of SWH in collaboration with Amsterdam's Miami Ad School called 'Gentle Giant' for business promotion effort Iamsterdam, in which big ideas get super-sized in the town. Surely, he hopes his will do the same.
