Mike Schmidt aka Mohawk Street aka Mike Mohawk aka M. Schmidty

Hello!
I'm Mike Schmidt.
Nice to meet you.

Hello! My name is Mike Schmidt, thanks for visiting. I'm a co-founder at morel, a creative design and storytelling agency based in DC. Give us a hollar!. On any given day you will find me collaborating with a talented team of designers, videographers, reporters, editors, artists, illustrators and photographers, most recently at National Geographic, where I was responsible for the vision, strategy and management of the short-form video team.

I really just love making things with people, especially interactive experiences, short films and multimedia content. Before Nat Geo I spent two years as the Associate Creative Director of the experimental iPad news publication, The Daily. I thrive on collaborative mayhem, high fives, creative problem solving, strong coffee and long walks in the park with my sweet, social, pit-mix, Pepper.

Featured Projects


Year in Review

We cherry picked a handful of great things created at NG in 2013, crafted new video teasers and built an interactive experience.


About Mohawk Street

I was born in the 70's and raised on the coolest block in Chicago, Mohawk Street, between Armitage and Dickens. Home wasn't just inside the building, but out on the street, laughing on the stoops, drawing on the sidewalks, racing through the gangways and exploring the alleys. In 2001, I named my personal studio after my original stomping grounds.
