I'm Matt Wolf and I started Wyndetryst in 2010, after working as an in-house graphic designer for 8 years, designing hundreds of publications annually.
Working in-house has given me a unique perspective on the challenges facing busy design and marketing departments. I understand the challenges in making the leap to hire a design studio when overwhelmed with projects. It takes time to do the research, build trust and educate a designer about your existing brand.
When I started Wyndetryst I made it my mission to create a design studio that met all of the needs to keep your brand in tiptop shape including:
- Start-to-finish turnkey solutions.
- Excellent communication skills.
- Design with speed & accuracy, within budgets.
- Ability to hit the ground running.
- Flexible & easy to work with.
We consider ourselves partners in your business and I look forward to personally starting a conversation with you to discuss how we can be your graphic design partner.
Meet the Wyndetryst Team
Owner & Creative Director
I'm the Owner and Creative Director of Wyndetryst, and I bring my extensive knowledge of graphic design and website design, as well as experience in offset printing, in creating integrated design campaigns for our clients.
I have a B.F.A. in Graphic Design from Marywood University and spent a semester studying art and design (and eating lots of pasta) at Studio Arts College International in Florence, Italy. For 8 years, I worked as an in-house designer at Marywood University and later Arcadia University, where I oversaw the design and production of hundreds of publications annually. In 2010, I focused my attention full-time to Wyndetryst where I've had the opportunity to use my love for design and excellent customer service to serve a large range of clients.
In my free time, I love adventurous travels exploring and photographing the world (and trying lots of wine and food along the way), checking out live music and broadway shows, and helping my team dominate every week at Quizzo.
Junior Art Director
I bring my passion for branding and identity, diverse graphic design skills, and fresh outlook on the ever-changing creative industry to my role of Junior Art Director.
I earned a B.F.A. in Visual Communications from the University of Delaware, and studied art, fashion and photography abroad in France, England, Italy and Belgium. Along with trying all the desserts and visiting all the museums, I was fortunate enough to work on my travel photography and even got to work backstage at a few Parisian fashion shows (yes, it is as hectic as you would think.) I started my design career working with two local Philadelphia design studios where I worked on a wide variety of publications, brands and websites. Some of my favorite project types include corporate branding, multi-page publications and product packaging. I also love exploring typography, digital illustration and photography.
In my free time, you can find me brunching with friends, playing video games and hanging with my rescue pup Ollie. You can also catch me at any and all coffee spots in Philly, consuming far too much caffeine for my own good.
Web Strategist & Project Manager
I love guiding digital projects from concept to completion, and helping to maintain a project’s creative vision while building a solid technical solution.
During my extensive career, I've worked in higher education, marketing/advertising and publishing in a variety of roles, including director of web communications, digital project manager, art director, and graphic designer. I have a B.A. in Art History from Muhlenberg College and an M.B.A from Arcadia University.
In my free time, I love doing non-technical activities such as biking, gardening, screenprinting, and exploring my hometown of Philadelphia.
Graphic Design Intern
I approach each project with a sense of enthusiasm and eagerness for creative problem-solving. My aim is to produce engaging designs for audiences with strong attention to detail, while offering versatility in today’s constantly-changing design field.
I’m currently in my last year of pursuing a B.F.A. in Graphic and Interactive Design at Tyler School of Art, Temple University, where I’ve been building a portfolio featuring my creativity and technical skills. My areas of interest include typography, branding, and web design. With an original background in painting, digital illustration has also become an exciting focus, and I love to incorporate this into my designs whenever there’s opportunity. I’ve also done some freelancing for clients through the years where I’ve been able to apply my focuses to produce an impactful visual solution for each objective.
In my free time, I enjoy traveling to new locations/trying new experiences, visiting my favorite local food spots with friends, hiking, and of course painting (whenever there’s time for it!).
