Web Sites

New Site Creation
Whether you’re a corporation or an individual, an entrepreneur or an artist, you need a website in our modern, interconnected age. Insiteful Arts specializes in tailoring a website to your specific needs. There are cheap, out-of-the-box website options out there, but that’s not what I do. Every site I create is hand crafted and detail oriented. You get a work of art wrapped around top notch technology. And if technology is a scary word, don’t worry. Part of my process is educating and training web-wary clients.

Print Design

Before the advent of the interwebs, designs were carved into stone tablets. Some years later, a German monk invented paper. Soon after came the Sports Section…
Insiteful Arts is better at print design than history. In fact, I’m really good at it. With more than a dozen years in professional newspaper design, I can use the ancient tools layout and design to impart impact and artistry to any and all of your printed materials.

Illustration

Long before I was crafting code or pushing a pica pole, I was drawing. Creating art was one of my first joys, and illustrating complex ideas is still one of my favorite challenges. Everything I do, whether it’s building websites or drawing up designs, comes from a desire to create art. I welcome illustration-specific jobs and I often incorporate original illustrations into my print and web design projects.

Insiteful Arts does:

  • Computer-assisted illustration (Adobe Photoshop & Illustrator)
  • Good ol’ hand-drawn illustrations (pencil, pastels, pen & ink)
  • Painting (oils, acrylics and water color)
  • Photo collage & photo-based illustration
  • Caricatures

Identity

Crafting a consistent brand identity is far more than whipping up a cute logo. Choosing a font and picking a piece of clip art DOES NOT equal an identity strategy. Too many websites, especially those quick do-it-yourself kits, suffer from inferior or completely unestablished identities. Insiteful Arts works closely with clients to create the right combination of original logos, typography and color usage.
Insiteful Arts does:

  • Original logo creation
  • Typographic and color theme integration
  • Style guides for identity usage

Quoting Clients

Matt was really easy to work with. His personalized approach to website building was just what I needed after a few disappointing trials with online templates.

Desiree Warren,
Artist and Owner of Eighty Acres Art

His Herculean efforts helped bring Embassy Moscow into the 21st century.

Paul Phipps,
System Manager, U.S. Embassy Moscow

The website follows the great design principle that ‘you should have nothing in your life that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.’ Bravo!

Heather Townsend,
Management Officer, U.S. Embassy Moscow

He makes the mundane look great. He worked hand-in-hand with me on advance planning for covers and always had a great sense of story, not unlike the best photographers.

Assignment editor, The Washington Post
