Living Arts Alumnus Mike Donatacci graduated in 2013 and has been forging his way into a Creativity Career ever since.

After interning with the local ABC affiliate for a year, and also serving for over a year as President of the Triangle Ad2 organization – Raleigh-Durham’s industry association of Advertising and Marketing Professional’s under the age of 32, Mike looked to advance his career even further. It was during this time that Mike was hired as a Creative Services Director at the Home Builders Association of Raleigh. There Mike is able to explore and cultivate his talents even further in Motion and Graphic Design. He continues to pursue freelance opportunities as well under “Mike Donatacci Designs”.

Mike’s work is receiving recognition from the industry as well. Some of Mike’s recent awards include:

  • Best Marketing and Communication Piece for Video Blast

Mike’s motto is “Creativity can solve almost any problem”, and his early career in Creativity is constant proof of this. We’re so excited for Mike as he continues to grow as a local creativity professional.
