My name is Micah Clark Wilkes. I am an Art Director and Designer from Utah. I am currently working with Ryan Schade at Deutsch, LA on the Volkswagen account. We like making fun stupid stuff that hopefully brightens a day.
I'm the 9th of 13 children. I grew up designing my siblings' book report posters for them. I love a hands on approach to design. Making, lettering, scanning, tearing, printing, then putting it back in the computer and animating. I've lived in Japan and speak fluent Japanese. However, lets go out for ramen and gyoza, not sushi please. My favorite film is Fantastic Mr. Fox. And the Utah Jazz are on the upswing so that keeps me happy. I have a crush on typography and motion design.
