My name is McKay Mattingly, I’m a designer currently living and working in Salt Lake City. I graduated from the University of Utah’s Bachelor of Arts program with an emphasis in graphic design. I completed an internship with Struck, an awesome studio in SLC where I had the opportunity to work on projects involving identity systems, packaging, photography and graphic illustration. I currently work at Skullcandy in Park City, Utah where I work on a range of projects from UI/UX, digital product design, packaging, identity systems & branding as well as art direction for photoshoots. I have done freelance for TedXSanFrancisco as well as smaller local companies.
I find beauty in simplicity as well as the natural and unique. I’m proficient in the Adobe Creative Suite, Sketch and Invision, with experience in After Effects and Principal. I have strong interpersonal communication skills and the ability to strongly communicate ideas through writing, image, and text. I’m an organized, adaptable, detail-oriented designer that takes pride in my intention. My areas of emphasis lie in UI/UX, typography, identity systems, branding, print, packaging, interactive experiences, conceptual/design thinking, and research. However, I’m eager and always looking to learn more. Collaboration and diversity are qualities I find incredibly important for success. I tend to take a human centered view on design; every person brings new lenses through which to view a problem and the best solution should be intersectional. I pride myself in my volunteer work and eagerness to give back to the design community. I currently hold the title of director of education with the AIGA Salt Lake City chapter. In that capacity I've planned and helped organized guest speakers, community events, Salt Lake City design week as well as the annual student portfolio review.
Let's grab some coffee and see how we might be able to work together.
