About.

INSPIRED BY DIFFERENCE.

From the earliest days of my childhood I’ve always thought outside the box, and have taken joy in showcasing my creative skill-set.  Whether it was on the basketball court, playground, or art class, my abilities managed to flourish.

I’ve been in the Creative field for a decade now. Unlike a majority of the population, I don’t go to work everyday.  It’s an insult to call what I do “work”.  It’s my passion, my love, and my calling. Aside from creating some pretty awesome material, I am only truly satisfied when I shake hands with my clients, and see an ear to ear smile after I deliver their final product.  That is what I love most about my line of work. I’m no doctor, and I’m not saving lives or risking my own for our country, but I do feel like I am making a difference to every client I work with. I’m making their lives better as a result of my work, and to me I am truly appreciative.

As a designer, there isn’t one certain area that interests me more than another. Whether it be creating a logo for a startup business, Branding Identity for an existing company, Web Design, or compiling a visually stunning advertisement in After Effects, I love it all.

I’ve had the privilege of working with over 150 clients in my career, as well as gain a wealth of industry experience from being a part of both small and large creative environments.

Take a look around, and check out some of the work that I’ve done.

Thanks for stopping by!

GREAT DESIGN MATTERS.

From concept all the way to completion, every aspect matters. This is where I truly excel as a designer. I go over every small detail, to ensure every pixel (or vector curve) is perfect.
01. DIGITAL.

The world has gone digital! Everything from advertising, brand recognition to presentations, this is the way of the future. As a designer, it’s my core focus to give my clients everything they need to stay on the cutting edge of the every growing digital world, including social media.

02. BRANDING.

Branding builds trust. It builds a companies reputation. It’s more than just a color scheme, a logo or a brochure.  It’s who you are. It represents what you stand for.  I have a strong grasp of how to bring out a companies integrity through brand recognition.

03. MARKETING.

Marketing is essential to any companies success, and it often goes overlooked. This ties directly in with Digital and Branding. These 3 things are the core values to the rise and fall of a business.  Staying with the current trends to properly and effectively market yourselves is huge. This is another way I can help your business flourish.

RESULTS DRIVEN DESIGN.

One thing that I pride myself on is honesty.  Do I know absolutely everything there is to know about Design? Heck no! This industry is constantly changing and growing, and after 11 years in this industry I’ve learned that it’s an amazing yet impossible challenge to learn everything.  What I do know, is that I make sure to learn new skills every single day to add to my arsenal.  Will I ever truly know everything? No… but I am pretty damn good designer and I only get better with each passing day! 🙂

THE USER MUST COME FIRST.

What I love about this industry, is there are no 2 projects alike. There are always different elements to each project I take on. Customer expectations are always unique, which is why I believe I have excelled so much as a designer.  I have the knowledge, skills and creative eye to handle completely diverse and unique projects! I absolutely love being challenged, and as a creative mind I believe that if I’m not being challenged I’m not growing.

Clients

MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

Customer Service and satisfaction are the two most important things to me. I will do whatever is necessary to go above and beyond to exceed every single one of my clients.  I am thankful for every single one of my clients. Without them,  I wouldn’t have obtained the skills, knowledge and experience I currently have and for that I am forever grateful.

“I was in a panic to get my company website completed after a previous hire severely set us back. Matt saved the day, and completed an amazing design that we never dreamed would be possible with the short deadline we requested. Thank you Matt! ”

“I was looking for a simple, minimalist logo with a corporate feel. I used Fiverr, and after a few designers I found Matt through Upwork. Matt provided me with excellent concept, and worked with me constantly to provide me with a logo that surpassed my picky expectation! We’ve hired Matt for work several times and he’s never disappointed us!”
