What best describes you.
Designer, Illustrator, I love news, and I love design. I love page/news design!
Hello, my name is Matthew Vann and I like to call myself, as cliche as it sounds, a visual journalist. I love working with multiple elements to put together a fantastic design that is visually stimulating as well as easy to digest for the reader. I like to think of news design as a puzzle since you sometimes have multiple pieces of art and multiple pieces of copy. It's the job of a news designer to arrange these pieces in a way that will be attractive and easy to read for the readers. I could do this for the rest of my life. The next thing I want to learn and delve into is web design and designing for the iPad and other such devices since that seems to be where newspapers are slowly headed toward.
Thanks for your valuable time!
I know some people have had trouble viewing some of my work in my portfolios, but it seems like they appear fine in Google Chrome, but from now on, I should have all pages I upload into my portfolio formatted in a way where all browsers shouldn't have a problem displaying my work. Sorry for the inconvenience.
