Graphic & WEB Design

Every band or brand needs a visual identity. Our crackerjack designers have decades of experience creating visually appealing, world-class logos and layouts that will make your product or service stand out.

Every artist also needs an online presence, including a website that lives at your very own dot com address. MKUltra’s world-class designers can build you a kickass site customized to your need, and set you up so that you can update and maintain it easily (or we can take care of that too, if you’d rather).

“Working with Matt was awesome, we had a very cozy recording environment and could create some incredible, visceral sounds I wasn’t expecting. His input was valuable and would love to work with him again!”

Tim Carson

Vocal Coach

“Matt is equal parts brilliant musician, creative artist, consummate professional, dedicated to excellence in all he does, and one of my favorite people on the planet to collaborate with!

I simply can’t recommend him and his studio highly enough.”



“My first time ever stepping into a studio was at MkUltra and it still remains a year later my go to professional studio to get recording work done. Working with Matt is such a blessing because during recording he always offers constructive ideas to further the recording.”



“Working at MK Ultra Studios stoked the dying fire inside me of what recording original music should be. Every time I’m there it is a beautiful experience and makes me believe I can turn water into wine.”
