Interview


Matthew J Stein

For over two decades I have exercised my love for design by specializing and focusing in areas of corporate identity, printing and branding.  Freelancing in the early stages of entrepreneurship allowed me to understand the needs and wants of the industry while trying to make a name for myself.  Taking on any project that I could, my clients started shifting from family and friends to local businesses and Fortune 500 companies.  I was quickly learning the trade and was definitely hungry for more. 

And although design has allowed me to be a part of some amazing opportunities, my greatest accomplishment is being a father. With three boys growing up way too fast they have taught me how to better myself in many areas of life.  I carry over the lessons of teamwork, building relationships and solving problems to the world of design and management.  Like raising children, design brings on many challenges but nothing that can't be overcome with a little patience, dedication and a goal in mind.
