Biography

George Harrison, One White Glove, Levis 501, Halo, Jurassic Park, Rolling Stone,
The Supreme Court?

Look around anywhere in the United States—and you can find examples of creativity that have literally become American icons.  The name Mike Salisbury may not appear on the work, but the brains and hands behind much of it are his.

As the man who created the highest earning re-branding in American business history, Mike Salisbury is recognized by his peers as one of the leading talents in American brand design.  He is the man behind the imprint on a multitude of diverse products from Halo-the world's most popular video game, Michael Jackson's tux and white glove, Rolling Stone, Surfer and Playboy magazines, O'Neill and Gotcha surfwear, Levi's 501 jeans (a brand that Salisbury created), along with some of the world's most recognized corporate branding and product design for companies like Volkswagen, Suzuki, Honda and Hasbro—the biggest toy company in the world.  Mr. Salisbury put Paris in L’Oreal and helped create 'The City of Entertainment' brand that is the MGM Grand.

His work is everywhere in the motion picture industry.  Mike Salisbury created marketing campaigns for over 300 movies including Aliens, Jurassic Park, Romancing the Stone, Raiders of The Lost Ark and Moulin Rouge.  In the film The People vs. Larry Flynt, Flynt defends the First Amendment based on a concept Mike Salisbury created.  The exploding boxing gloves that interpreted Rocky IV to the world—a Salisbury image so hot it became the visual symbol for the film that did not need the title for identification.  This visual metaphor became Mike Salisbury's most copied graphic.  George Lucas collects Mr. Salisbury's work and recommended him to Francis Ford Coppola who used Salisbury imagery creations in Apocalypse Now.

Music industry work includes creating album covers for George Harrison, James Taylor, Randy Newman, Rickie Lee Jones, Ry Cooder, and Ike & Tina.  He developed branding identities for Blue Note Records, RCA, United Artists Records and PolyGram.  Mr. Salisbury has a Grammy for album design.

Mike Salisbury was an art director, creative director, V.P. and senior V.P. at legendary advertising agencies including Wells Rich Greene, Foote Cone Belding, Young & Rubicam and has taught design, advertising, illustration, and photography at UCLA, Otis Art Institute, and Art Center.  He is a contributing editor and writer for Forbes, Men's Journal and other magazines and Mr. Salisbury has taken photographs for them as well as Vogue, Esquire, Newsweek, and more.

Mr. Salisbury has written articles about his own work and has reported on his motorcycling and surfing adventures all over the world—surfing safaris to Fiji, Nicaragua, motorcycle adventures circumnavigating Alaska, dirt biking across Peru from the Pacific over the Andes to Machu Pichu, racing sport bikes from Milan to Corsica, and Sardinia, off-roading Baja and into the Brazilian Amazon from Bolivia, Jet Skiing around the Florida Keys into the Grand Canyon, and across the Gulf Stream and the Bermuda Triangle from Miami to Bimini.

Mike has photographs in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. His design work is in the Library of Congress, the National Archives and the Smithsonian. He has been invited to speak across the US, Europe and South America. His photography and graphic work have been featured in museum shows worldwide.

Mike Salisbury has taught advertising, design, illustration, and photography at UCLA, Art Center, Otis Art Institute, Cal Arts, and has held seminars in Brazil and Finland.

Appointed to the Naval Academy, Annapolis by Congress, Mike Salisbury flunked math. (See all of the above.)
