Meet Matt, Design Director
To give our clients the best possible experience in our shop, SBT offers in-house design support. Our creative team can take your ideas and transform them into reality: there’s no banner too big, no sign too small, no project too unusual.
Heading up the creative team is Matt, our Design Director. Matt joined our team in June of 2015, making this month his six-year anniversary at Signs By Tomorrow. Congratulations, Matt! We’re glad to have you.
We thought it was past time you got to know Matt, so we’re sharing a few things about our Design Director:
What were you doing before SBT?
I was still working my college job, handling materials for a hospital. I was studying drawing and graphic design at the time, editing photos and creating game art on the side.
What’s your favorite project from the past five years?
I like unique projects, from making custom lettering for an antique safe to setting up a city-wide art installation, but I think my favorite was designing our own storefront corner graphics. It let me exercise my photo editing skills in a real-world space and play with faux shadowing—the front bay windows bring in a strong sideways light source, so I applied shading to the design for a realistic effect.
What’s the most satisfying part of your job?
Finding a solution to a problem that has plagued everyone else.
Let us get to know you a little. Are there any furry friends at home?
Two rescues! Miso, a runt of the litter calico cat, and Maki, a corgi/heeler mix.
Now that the world is starting to open back up, where are you dreaming of visiting?
I would love to go to Japan someday for the food and sites, but for now I’ll settle for going to Comic-Con—I owe my nieces a trip.
And last: What’s your sign?
You can find Matt at SBT Elgin headquarters, creating, innovating, and making our customers happy with his top-notch design skills.
