Who We Are

m.designs is a small full-service Marketing and Design agency started by Michael Hillerman in 2003.

After spending six years working as the Lead Designer and Creative Director for the renowned motivational speaker and life coach Anthony Robbins, Michael struck out on his own and founded m.designs in North San Diego County.

Specializing in small business in need of brand identity, innovative marketing strategy, and eye-catching graphics, m.designs is here to help you reach your business goals.

Our Work

Every project is unique, but they all start with one thing in common. We want to know everything.

Where you started. Where you want to go next. What you value. Who your customers are and why they care about you.

The only way to solve a problem is to understand it from every angle.

You have truly brought our design elements and overall look and feel to an entirely new level in the past couple of years. From our products such as Living Health and the Time of Your Life to the RPM products and marketing materials, there is a new richness and consistency that I am very excited about!

Michael was our graphic designer for the rebrand of our company and was awesome! He spent countless hours both with us in person and on his own designing the new look. It was a huge undertaking but he was creative, thorough, easy to work with and delivered an amazing final product. We continue to use him as needed and it’s always the same great return.

Michael thinks of things that you won’t, which reflects well on the finished result. He is professional and wants you to be satisfied. He brings a lot of creativity to the table and won’t settle for something that hasn’t reach up to his exacting standards. He uses both the right and left sides of his brain when he approaches a project. I love working with Michael and think you will too.
