2 Minutes With … Jeremy Mitchell, Founder of Mitchell Bat Co.
Jeremy Mitchell holds two decades of experience in the creative advertising world. A self-professed "maker," he has spent most of his working life putting things together for people, including apps, websites, videos, photographs and music. And now he even paints baseball bats.
We spent two minutes with Jeremy to learn more about his background, his creative inspirations and recent work he's admired.
