Nine years experience working with local and international printers means Matt knows what works in print. It shows in great layouts for stationery, viewbooks, newsletters, maps, brochures and other ephemera.
Showing is a powerful companion to any form of telling. With an eye for print and the web, Matt captures and edits documentary-style images with strong narratives that tell the story all on their own.
Crafted Words. Compelling Stories. Wry ellipses… Matt writes short pieces as himself and client copy for newsletters, websites and campaigns. Smithing other people’s words to a fine edge is part of the trade.
Matt’s never run for office, but he’s the only Foursquare Super Mayor in his hometown. A high-end user and experimenter, Matt can help clients determine best platforms and strategies for getting their story out.
Creative solutions that re-imagine or invigorate projects, organizations, and communities. Matt’s a natural at the kind of expansive thinking that yields innovation, growth and a crazy amount of sticky notes.
I turn ordinary into awesome
