My name is Matthew Beasley and I am a designer based in NYC.
After more than 10 years of experience in the design field, I wouldn't say I have one specific title. I am a creator, someone who loves crafting unique experiences by putting the customer experience first and working outward towards the technology. I believe the web has become a very stale place and many sites are starting to look alike. That is why I make sure brand personality is incorporated in every digital experience.
I create customer experiences that I can sign my name to. I always start with the user experience and work outward towards technology. To become a nationally recognized designer through personality, team collaboration, and close relationships with clients. I am always aware of the top trends, but never trapping myself by them.
If I had a #1, visual design would be it. From the start, I've always enjoyed visual design whether its UI design, print or illustrations. Bringing a vision to life is the most enjoyable experience.
User experience can be used in every aspect such as digital experiences, visual design, product, life and so on. User Experience will always be a part of my role no matter where I am.
I've managed large teams with complex requirements such as a health application and high profile clients like the world congress center designing for celebrity clients. Having a healthy team dynamic allowing everyone to have a voice and utilize all their skills is critical.
