Mike Lyman served as Executive Officer of the Tampa Bay chapter in 2011 and remains a current member today. 501st Legion - Former Executive Officer / Current Member Michael "Magnum" Lyman has organized a large number of events involving The 501st Legion, some of which involved live television appearances. At left: Trooping For The Troops, an annual event at VA hospitals to thank veterans for their service. Other high-profile events he has organized and managed include Star Wars Day at the Tampa Bay Times Forum (now called the Amalie Arena), All Childrens Hospital, Night At The Museum at the Tampa Bay History Center, and the Dark Sky Festival in the town of Harmony.

  8. 8. 8 8 8 Graphic Design and Custom Logos Michael Lyman has a Bachelors Degree in graphic design and a certificate in web development. Combined with his years of illustration and photography experience, he is uniquely suited to offer "one-stop-shopping" for marketing, social media and promotional services. Custom Logo Design People remember much more of what they see than what they read. There's no denying that a picture paints a thousand words, and a company's logo instantly provides a brand identity, image and meaning before one word is read about the business. Magnum Arts creates original, memorable and effective custom logos for businesses, entrepreneurs and events.

  12. 12. 12 12 12 Responsive Web Design Over fifty percent of people viewing websites do so on mobile devices. Having a non- responsive website just won't cut it anymore. A responsive website reconfigures based on screen size, making it easy to view on smart phones, tablets and full-sized monitors. Links are easy to see - and press - with fingers on touch-screens. A non-responsive website requires users of mobile devices to scroll back and forth to read sentences, find links and access content. Words flow off the screen, links are difficult to find, and images take up valuable space on small screens.
  13. 13. 13 13 13 Magnum Arts creates websites custom tailored to better improve the image and content of small businesses and entrepreneurs, and includes marketing, branding and content expertise as well. Websites are easily modified as needed, responsive, and built on the WordPress platform. Why WordPress? WordPress is the most versatile, configurable and easy to manage blogging and website platform on the Internet. With an almost unlimited number of options and tools available to make a WordPress site unique, Magnum Arts creates websites that do not look like stock templates and reflect the mission and personality of each business and entrepreneur. The best part of WordPress is that once your website is configured exactly the way you want it, you can manage it as you see fit. Magnum Arts provides the guidance to let you make changes and add content as needed, whenever you wish. Your Website Is Your Image

  18. 18. 18 18 18 Photography Michael Lyman has been involved with photography since high school, served as chief photographer in college, photographed cities all over Europe and spent seven years in New York documenting the city. He provides photography services for 501st Legion events, such as the annual Stars of Hope fundraiser, in which he created a website for donors to collect their pictures with movie-accurate Star Wars characters, an event that raises hundreds of dollars for charity. His passion is documenting the world and the events that take place in them, capturing moments that are gone forever once they occur, and seeing the world in a different way. He is available to document your events as well.
  19. 19. 19 19 19 Photo Essay - Saving A Sailor's Home The sailboat owned by a retired Navy SEAL became stuck on the beach in Gulfport, Florida, and the town gave him an ultimatum: move the boat or it will be chopped up and hauled away. It was his only home, so a group of volunteers came together to help free it from the sand. Mike Lyman spent the day in the water photographing the efforts of volunteers who came together to help a veteran in need, developing a bond in the process. Their efforts were successful, and a man's home was saved.
  20. 20. 20 20 20 Photo Essay - Moving The Empire Theater The Empire Theater in New York City is where Abbott and Costello first performed, and is designated a historic building. When AMC decided to build a movie theater on the site, they had to incorporate the theater into their plans, since they couldn't tear it down. Instead, they picked up the theater and moved it 170 feet to its new home. The event featured huge inflatable Abbott and Costello balloons to make it appear they were pulling the theater forward. From the press area, Mike Lyman was able to document the entire process.
  21. 21. 21 21 21 Photo Essay - New York Yankees Parades While in New York, Michael Lyman photographed two New York Yankees ticker-tape parades in lower Manhattan, one in 1996, the other in 1998, getting up at 4 in the morning to secure a good spot on Broadway, where the parade took place.
  22. 22. 22 22 22 Testimonials Michael Lyman has a lot of positive energy and enthusiasm as a teacher. People really enjoyed his free 5-minute drawing lessons at our local Comic Con. He knows how to encourage people to connect with their creativity and not be afraid of expressing it in art. Greg Plantamura Computer Graphic Specialist at City of St. Petersburg “In addition to being a very talented designer and illustrator, Michael is extremely reliable and one of the best designers with whom I’ve worked. He has a knack for taking limited information from clients (like me!) and creating several options to meet their needs. I’d highly recommend Michael for any type of design work and web site development. Pat Huston, SCORE Business Consultant Michael K. is an excellent event coordinator. He has helped me organize my outdoor festival at Lowery Park Zoo along with recording and capturing my bands performance. A highly recommend Michael K as an event coordinator, photographer and illustrator. John Sammel Founder, CJS Music Productions
  23. 23. 23 23 23 Michael coordinated costumed characters from the 501st Legion to attend several large-scale functions at the Tampa Bay History Center in the last year. From the grand opening of an exhibit which entailed a massive parade down the Riverwalk leading to an "invasion" of the museum to our Night at the Museum trick-or-treat events, Michael's attention to detail allowed these events to run smoothly and the crowds loved it! His strong leadership and respect for his Legion members was obvious, as was their respect for him. I can't imagine what I would have done this year during our Night at the Museum event if it hadn't been for his dedication. I had to call Michael at the last minute to pull together several people for the event only days away. Not only did he come through, he saved the day! We had more than our initial anticipated need. I can't thank him enough and welcome any opportunity to work with such a dedicated, helpful, enjoyable professional in the future. Jen Tyson Assistant Curator of Education Tampa Bay History Center I've had the pleasure of working with Michael on several Star Wars related group events, with more to come! Michael was instrumental in coordinating appearances by the 501st Legion. His timeliness and attention to detail ensured the troop was an overwhelming success. As a result of Michael’s work, our very first Star Wars event gained national attention, and LucasFilm Ltd.’s, accolades! Chris Farnkopf Manager, Corporate Hospitality Sales at The Madison Square Garden Company
  24. 24. 24 24 24 Why stop at just giving your visitors the basics? Share your story. Who you are, what your company is passionate about, and what makes you do what you do. As Simon Sinek states, people don't buy what you do, they buy why you do it. They buy your story, your dreams and motivations. Blog posts, embedded videos and information not strictly related to your business, but of interest to your visitors, add value for your customers and set you apart from the competition. Tell Your Story - Social Media Is Key What will set you apart from others doing the same thing? Your values, image and on-line presence will be what potential customers will consider. Buying goods and services involves an emotional factor; customers want to feel good about what they are buying, and telling your story helps establish the connection that will set you apart from the competition. Magnum Arts can help you tell your story, through responsive web designs, blogs and social media. Social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Tumblr and others are crucial to getting the attention of potential customers and followers. Consider: over ninety percent of the sales cycle is finished before a customer reaches out to someone at a company.
