Mychael Metcalf
Creative Director
McCann Detroit
As a highly imaginative only child growing up in southern Ohio, Mychael spent countless hours creating artistic images. Wherever he went he always kept a bag of crayons and paper in hand. That led him to attend The Columbus College of Art & Design in Columbus, OH and study illustration and fine art before moving on to graduate from The College of Modern Design in Kettering, OH with a degree in Illustration and Advertising Design. Mychael went to work on the Ohio Lottery and the Washington D.C Lottery account before being recruited to work on the Michigan Lottery, resulting in eventually making his move to Detroit. For the past 20+ years he has lent imagination, creativity and direction to everything from small-scale pro-bono community-based projects all the way to big-budget Super Bowl commercials. He has worked across diversified national, international and Fortune 500 accounts such as: Chevrolet, Cadillac, DaimlerChrysler, Proctor & Gamble, General Mills, Domino’s Pizza, Buick, Kmart, GMC, Colgate, NBC, eBay, Sports Illustrated and Fox NFL. His award-winning black and white fine art has been on display in galleries and museum exhibitions from Essencefest to Art Basel Miami and many places in-between. Currently Mychael is a Creative Director at McCann Detroit. Previous to this he was at GTB in Dearborn, MI working exclusively on the Ford Motor Company account. He still occasionally keeps a bag of crayons and paper within reach.
