Well, let's zoom in on this question faster than the Millenium Falcon in hyperdrive.
Mike's career journey is more diverse and action-packed than a Marvel comic strip. He's been a peacekeeper in the U.S. Marine Corps (think Captain America, but with less spandex), a mentor at Platt College (the Yoda of design, if you will), and a Creative Art Director at Reliance Worldwide Corporation (a role where he wielded creativity like Thor wields his hammer).
Currently, as the Creative Director at Enlyte and the genius behind AstroBrand Media, Mike is pulling off a Nick Fury-meets-Tony Stark fusion. He's gathered an extraordinary league of marketers and designers, and together they are making their mark across a range of industries, from retail to solar.
But what about his powers, you ask? Mike is a wizard in design, his command of Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator would make Doctor Strange envious. But his true 'Infinity Stone'? His mastery in video and animation production that would have Peter Parker racing to catch up.
Mike draws his design inspiration from the same source as a Jedi draws power - from everything around him. But two elements stand out – comic books and Star Wars. He harnesses the visual drama of comic books, combining it with the narrative depth of Star Wars, to create designs that are as visually striking as they are engaging. His work doesn't just tell a story, it immerses you in an experience - a journey into a galaxy where creativity and strategy intertwine like the strands of the Force.
His leadership? Imagine Captain America's inspiring presence combined with Obi-Wan Kenobi's sage-like wisdom. Mike guides his creative Avengers, tackling deadlines and design challenges with the tenacity of a Mandalorian bounty hunter.
But don't just take my word for it. Mike's LinkedIn is a veritable Hall of Justice of glowing recommendations. From Marine comrades to design disciples, all laud his professional prowess, creative genius, and Jedi-like leadership. His work ethic? Solid as Vibranium. His leadership? Comparable to the greatest of the Jedi Order.
So, to answer your question: Why hire Mike Matamala? Because he's the creative, experienced Jedi Master your brand is looking for. He'll take your project to a galaxy far, far away and back again, delivering results that will leave you in awe. So, what are you waiting for? Give Mike a call, and like any good Marvel post-credits scene, prepare to be on the edge of your seat, excited for what he'll conjure up next!
