I'm MatthewDesigner and Developer

"Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works"

Steve Jobs

My name is Matthew Fincher. I am a Designer and Developer living in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I have a passion for the detail and design that makes everyday user experiences come to life. Technologies and design trends change yet, my approach to business remains the same – innovative, effective, efficient, and loyal to my customers. By staying focused on my core values and services, I have developed an expertise in design for print and digital media.

Areas of interest

Web Design & Development

I design and develop each project from beginning to end, taking no shortcuts or using purchased themes. After meeting with each client and learning what exactly is needed for their project, I begin the UI/UX design process. I plan out each section to make sure it will function and flow exactly the way its expected by the client.

Responsive Design

Responsive web design is the approach which suggests that design and development should respond to the user’s behavior and environment based on screen size, platform and orientation. As the user switches from different devices the website should automatically switch to accommodate for the resolution and image size.

Custom WordPress Themes

Sick of having to reach out to a web developer every time you want to change the copy on your website? My ability to build completely custom themes means I can duplicate your current website’s look, just by adding the WordPress admin to it. WordPress websites are very easy to maintain, you don’t need to know any programming or HTML in order to update the content.

Print Design

Although print is often overlooked due to the advancement of websites, there is a lot of value in holding a business card in your hand. Bringing your brand to life through tangible objects is something that websites can never replace. Whether it’s through ads, brochures, or stationary, I provide solutions for all of your printing needs.

Graphic Design

Successful branding uses design to tell the story of your brand while differentiating you from your competitors. Advertising experts say that it takes 8-10 impressions of your logo before consumers start recognizing it. Be sure that impression is a solid one, be it a logo, stationary, or advertisement.

Photography

Believe it or not, photography is a big part in web design and can either make or break the site. I can make adjustments to images so that they not only match the website artistically, but are appealing to your customers and help promote your products or services.

Working hard for you with the perfect solutions for all your needs.

In 2008, I recognized my passion for beautiful and functional web design and started working directly with companies from around the area with the simple mission, to create elegant digital solutions that help clients achieve their business goals.

Over the years I have enhanced my skills in web development, graphic design, print media, and have taken on various freelance jobs to help further my knowledge. Undertaking various opportunities, coupled with my professional career, has given me the much needed experience for success. Along with acquiring a strong attention to detail, I’m able to ensure that every element fits the design aspect and enhances the user experience.

Fueled by a passion for problem solving through proven web design methods, new technologies, and advancing myself in my profession, I have learned how to manage multiple projects at the same time while meeting all deadlines. Whether you’re a small business that needs to update an outdated web presence, or you’re a creative agency looking for assistance with an overload of work, I can help. It never hurts to say, “Let’s talk about your next project!”
