Resume & Portfolio

My name is Matthew McAdams,
but most people just call me Matt.

I'm a graphic designer, illustrator, web designer, artist, and gamer. I'm currently a student at The University of Alabama at Birmingham for my Bachelor of Fine Arts focusing on graphic and web design. Like most graphic designers, I drink a lot of coffee, stay up late, and live for details. I'm a perfectionist for better or for worse, but I bring that passion into every project I work on. I won't pretend I know everything, I am still in college after all, but I'm always more than happy to learn new things.



Sometimes, I have to make images from scratch. This is where illustration comes in. I typically approach illustration by building complex shapes with smaller, simpler ones. This gives me a clean aesthetic that I really enjoy working with.

Graphic Design

Graphic design is a big topic. Usually, when I think about graphic design, I think about design for print. From promotional items to business systems, graphic design makes up the bulk of what I do.

Web Design

I build websites. Its a simple statement, but it means a lot. I code by hand, typing out all html and css. I take great pride in creating fast, clean code, and stunning websites. I also have a good understanding of HTML 5 and CSS 3 standards and best practices.
