Ship 'Em

Founder + Creative Director – Product + Strategy

Overview

This was a project I conceived in 2014. It presented itself while people watching in the streets of New York City. What started out as sketches in notepads, evolved to a prototype.

Howdy,
I'm a full-time pixel bully.

I've been getting those little bastards to do what i want (usually to make pretty little digital things) for the past 20 years.

I've helped produce everything from websites and apps to multi-platform product redesigns and brand languages. I've lead teams of designers and copy writers and collaborated daily with tech and project stakeholders. I'm a ramen addict and prefer my "first loves" (Miiler Lite & PBR) over anything fancy and crafty. If you have something challenging and need it sorted, let's chat.
Thanks,
Matt
