Hi, I'm Matt Jylkka. I'm a passionate motion graphic designer and pixel perfectionist. I grew up 40 minutes outside Detroit and now live in Grand Rapids. I started animating with the incredible Microsoft Powerpoint when I was 13 and have snowballed into becoming a bonafide geek.

I never thought a career in motion graphics was possible, so fought daydreaming and doodling on my assignments throughout middle school and into college before giving in. Along the way I started playing guitar in a band, recording music and getting into audio production - even trying business classes before coming full circle and back to motion graphics.

I studied Cinematography and Multimedia Design at Central Michigan University and now work at DVS in Grand Rapids where I'm slowly developing a taste for craft beer.

Since I began working at DVS, I started the channel Mt. Mograph on YouTube, with the idea that speaking about my workflow might help me make sense of it all. Eventually I found I was getting a couple hundred views a day and a comment here or there and started getting really into posting tutorials. In the first 7-months Mt. Mograph has gained 25,000 subscribers and over 500,000 views becoming a big part of my life and who I am.

My passion is to constantly challenge myself - to better my work and person. I live to soak up new experiences and adventures - and I delight in smashing them together in my projects. Collaboration and exchange is what has always kept me inspired and bettered my work. Read Less
