Peter Johnston

I'm a videographer/editor for CAS Media. I chose to come back to Michigan after living in Chicago for a year--working in the fast-paced downtown scene wasn't what I was looking for, and I wanted to come back for my Masters degree at Michigan State University. After working with a colleague as a TA in the College of Communication Arts and Sciences, he offered me the position at CAS Media when I graduated. We typically produce videos for grant-funded projects in departments around the University, so the work is very diverse and always educational. We've worked on media for the Sustainable Michigan Endowed Project, the Michigan Energy Efficiency Network, a state-wide program for Head Start, and the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative. It's exciting to be part of a small team that turns work around very fast.

Andy Doerr

I do graphic design. Mostly printed pieces, but some web design also. I also do alot of photography here. I got into graphic design in high school with the direction of my sister who owns a graphic design and web design company in Alexandria, VA called Simpatico Design Studio. She helped me take necessary classes and I started to love it and then I went to college for it. I took many graphic design jobs and internships until I found the internship at MessageMakers using MSU's career website. So I started as a graphic design intern fall 2009 and then continued until December. They decided to take me on as a part time contractor after that until September 2010. At that point they brought me on as a full-time employee. The best thing about my job is the relaxed and comfortable office setting. I also get to do some traveling with them to video and learning events all over the country. I love to travel so this makes the job even more enjoyable.
