Matthew Black

Who Am I

My name is Matt, not Matte, I am currently a 3rd year IT student with a passion for website development and graphic design. Through my current degree I also hope to gain skills in app development and server maintenance. I also have skills in social media management, advertising and photography.

I am able to work well in a team environment, I take criticism and use it to improve, I take pride in my work and focus on the small details. I am proactive and am always looking for ways to improve my skills and explore new territory.

What & How

I'm not just limited to website development, I involve myself with Graphic Design, Photography and social media management as well. I try not to limit myself so that I can be prepared for any possible opportunities that come along.

JGalbraith

A friend approached me with a bit of fun project, a simple logo, that he may/may not use in the future, and a 2-sided business card design. At the time I didn't have the knowledge of how to do a virtual render of how the design will appear when printed, I used the Vistaprint product preview system to render.
