Introduction: Hi there! My name is Matthew. I've been working professionally as a freelance graphic designer for the better part of the last eleven years. I've designed logos, promotional materials, album covers, merchandise, websites, and many other pieces that have gone on to market for brands, individuals, and organizations all over the world. I'm extremely passionate about helping my clients turn their creative visions into a reality and I find no project too small or trivial for a keen eye and a deft hand. If you're looking for a flexible designer who is extremely detail-oriented and easy to work with, I'm your guy!

I recently had some work I needed done (a illustration and logo revision) and happened to stumble across Mr. Carlson and decided to contact him and I’m really glad I did. He was more than willing to accommodate my schedule as well as touch base with me via phone call for a consultation pre project with a detailed plan of approach to tackle what I needed done. His years of experience shows and pricing is more than fair for the quality of work that was presented. When we had initially spoke he had given me a rough estimate of about a week or two to complete this project depending on reworks etc and ended up having everything I needed done within a few days. He was extremely professional, knowledgeable, and it was such a pleasure to had been able to work with him. I have more projects planned for the future and will be returning to have them worked on by Mr. Carlson as well as recommending him to anyone that needs a graphic design project done.

Matt was amazing to work with! He was patient, not afraid to pick up the phone and call with questions and to make sure we were getting out of our project what we wanted. Matt was smart with his time estimate and was incredibly thorough. He not only has knowledge as a graphic designer, but he also thought ahead about how our logo would look on the media that we wanted to use it on, such as letterhead, business cards, labels, clothing tags, etc. He took all of our thoughts into consideration, provided multiple mock ups and was SO easy to work with. We will be proud to say that he created our logo for us, and we'll be returning for any future evolutions we may encounter in the future. Thanks, Matt!! You rock!

It was such a pleasure to work with Matthew, whose quality of work under a tight deadline was nothing short of amazing. I am new to working with graphic designers, and I greatly appreciated his a wonderfully clear process where he explained each step and had me review drafts as the project developed. I am so thankful for his professionalism, intuitive design talent, and insight into the process, not to mention his patience and kindness while working with a newbie like me. His rates are very fair, and he works efficiently with great communication. I would recommend Matthew highly to anyone seeking a professional graphic designer.

Matthew was great to work with. He patiently assisted bringing my design images to life & contributed some of his own, which enhanced it overall. He worked with very short notice to assist in finishing a deck I needed. We knocked it out fast & professionally. I highly recommend him for any small or bigger design project!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I prefer to set pricing on a project-to-project basis. Depending on the type of design in question, certain projects can easily be more or less expensive. For example -- adapting an existing graphic for print would require less time and resource than generating a new one from scratch.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I typically prefer to start every project with a consultation phone call where I speak to my clients at length about what they wish to accomplish with their design. Will your design need to be printed? Is it a logo or branding for a company? Does it need to be adapted for your website? All of these questions and many more can impact the way in which we might tackle your project. Once I have a firm understanding of your individual needs, I then like to help new clients understand what to expect in terms of time-frame, pricing, and my logistical process for making any revisions. Then we get to work!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I studied Graphic and Web Design at the Boston University Center for Digital Imaging Arts from 2012-2013 -- although I feel that there is simply no better educational process than hands-on work. After nearly ten years working professionally in the field, I find that the majority of my work at this point is informed by the thousands of hours I've spent working with clients to dial-in their specific wants and needs.
