My name is Matthew Shafer and I am a creative professional from Central Florida.

I love everything design and am truly blessed to be working at something that I love. I am a typically a minimalist when it comes to design; I try to tell the story using as few elements as possible, I like clean design. I am a problem solver, a creative thinker and I am very detail oriented. My designs are created to meet a need and the elements of the design are purposeful in achieving that.

Print, web, photo, video, you name it I have over ten years of professional experience in all aspects of design. Working both as an associate as well as an art director and creative manager. I have developed complete concepts individually and worked as part of a team. I am experienced in both shooting and editing video as well as motion graphic design and VFX. I am also an experienced photographer with the skillset to process and manipulate images. I have experience in marketing and branding design, web design and interactive media. I have extensive customer service experience with the ability to interpret ideas into design.
