Hello, I’m

Matt Parrish

I am a graphic designer.

about me

Hi, I’m Matt. Talking about myself is not my strong suit but, I’ll give it a go.

I am a web developer who specializes in WordPress. I’m a graphic designer. An all-around creative. A musician. A songwriter. A dad. A proud introvert. An INFJ. An MBTI nerd. A lover of live music. A hiker. An outdoor enthusiast. A fixer. A listener.

 

I’ve been designing websites and doing graphic design for a long time and I love the entire process—from concept to completion. There’s something cool about taking someone’s vision and bringing it to life. All of the people I’ve worked with (I hate the word clients) have been happy with the end result and I pride myself on being helpful and communicating with them throughout the entire process.

“Go and make interesting mistakes, make amazing mistakes, make glorious and fantastic mistakes. Break rules. Leave the world more interesting for your being here. Make. Good. Art.”Neil Gaiman

If you have a need or a problem, I’d love to help you work through it and find a solution. If you have any questions about any of the services I offer or if you’d just like to say hello, please don’t hesitate to get in touch!

Matt is very knowledgable and provides exceptional service. I had no idea what I was doing when I set up my WordPress site, which is why I turned to him. He provided troubleshooting when there was a problem, designed my logo, and helped me install plugins and a theme. I highly recommend Matt.
