Mitch Rossow, Designer, Artist, Geek

A geek from birth, I grew up in a print shop, back in the days of ‘camera ready offset printing’ before the Macintosh changed the world. Designing was assembling elements on a blue-lined board with glue or wax then photographically transferring it to a printing plate. Starting in third grade, I worked a darkroom and set headlines with a wacky little machine called a Strip Printer, but I digress. I grew up surrounded by design & photography and this apple hasn’t rolled far from the tree except for and interest in technology & philosophy. How many people do you know with an Art Degree who took advanced calculus & 500-level philosophy classes?

Technology has changed and I love it. I’m a geek; a Maker, I always want to know what’s next and have skeptical eye for the dumb stuff too. I was working in CSS before anyone else and I fell madly in love with WordPress in 2007 and never looked back. Remember Adobe Flash? I never used it and never had a kind word for it. I have a fondness for books and Flash was video poking its nose under the tent and not in a good way. I always am thinking about how to share information and educate — structure, form and clarity. Speaking of clarity, while building a website for an artist, I developed an obsessively  exacting system for photographing oil paintings without glare. something that turned out to be so effective that I upgraded to a 36-megapixel camera (the best Nikon makes) and now shoot for dozens of other artists.

My main focus is building Responsive websites using WordPress and a collection of reliable tools & elements. My years of design, writing and photography provide me the real-world footing to complete the projects and deliver successful results to my clients. This isn’t a side gig or something I do because I want to play with technology. I love what I do, surfing the edge between art and technology.

‘One hand for you and one hand for the ship’ —  you can’t reach forward without a firm grasp on reality and your base. As new technologies and opportunities come along, I evaluate them based on what is good for my clients. Return on Investment. You grow, I grow. The wild free world of the internet is an amazing place, the free market in all its glory, but without an honest strong footing in reality of who and what you are, it can be unnecessarily risky. New tools improve effectiveness but authenticity and clarity of purpose remain constant.

Client Testimonials

Bob Davis

I started podcasting in 2009, using the old Apple iLife architecture to hold the podcasts, and written material associated with them. With the demise of iLife, and an opportunity to focus full time on podcasting, clearly it was time to update to a fully professional website running a new CMS that could deliver the podcasts as well as serve my other needs.

I tried to do it on my own, and finally in frustration, put a note on FaceBook. Along comes Mitch Rossow with graphic design and a full bag of WordPress tricks. We worked about 24 hours a day until was fully operational. That meant holding the podcasts, serving up to iTunes, Stitcher and TuneIn, as well serving podcasts from the website, retail sales, a blog and slider ads for clients. Since then we have served up almost 2 million podcasts and delivered hundreds of thousands of hits and page views to advertising clients of the Bob Davis Podcasts.

Mitch also designs the banners for my advertisers (sometimes they’re better than what the advertiser uses on their own website), and putting up with my panicked calls when Go Daddy drives us crazy. The thing is, most podcasters throw up their hands and pay big money to have podcast ‘networks’ serve up their podcasts.

It is with a great sense of freedom that Mitch made it possible for me to be own master and host my own podcasts. That’s why I can say, The Bob Davis Podcasts; Often imitated, NEVER duplicated. Buh Bye!

Minneapolis Daily Photo Blog

Back in 2007, a client asked me to create a blog for him. I had been investigating this new phenomenon and decided to create a blog to experiment with. I had recently taken a photo class with international celebrity podcaster Chris Marquart, so I decided to use my photos from the class; gotta start with something! As I worked away on it, I discovered that people were creating ‘Daily Photo Blogs’ all around the world. Cool Idea! And thus it began.

Now with over 1200 daily posts, Mitchster Minneapolis Daily Photo Blog continues on, providing me with a fun creative outlet. Please feel free to comment on the photos and send me any ideas you have on things I should go photograph!
