The Pro Football Hall of Fame is proud to offer a series for learners in high school, college and beyond! “Before the Snap” gives an insight to professional careers in and around the NFL, while giving a live audience the opportunity to interact with an industry expert. On Friday, October 29th, 2021 at 12:00pm ET special guest Mike Myers will be on hand to speak on his career, what he does in his current position and much more!!
“Mike Myers graduated from the University of Mount Union with a degree in Sport Business. Shortly after, he got his start working for a small, but global company in Cleveland, Ohio, that specializes in youth basketball. While he was involved in a lot of varying facets of the company, he inserted himself into the marketing side where he began learning Photoshop and the basics of design. After 8 years, a job change, many books, YouTube videos and a lot of trial and error he made the transition to become the Brand Manager & Graphic Designer for Pro Football Hall of Fame.
In his new role he was given the opportunity to standardize the Hall of Fame brand for the first time in its history, developing brand guidelines to be followed throughout the organization. Some of his other responsibilities included developing new content ideas/creative for social media, advertisements for visitation to the museum, branding associated with the annual Enshrinement Week Powered by Johnson Controls, sponsorship proposals and many other miscellaneous projects that come with being the only in-house designer. Through the years this role evolved and changed to the point where he was fortunate to be promoted to Creative Director in 2020 where he oversees a team responsible for creative, website and social media.
Currently, he resides in North Canton, Ohio, with his wife Sara of 6 years, his 3-year-old daughter Amelia, a soon-to-be-born second daughter and their dog Boomer. ”
