There’s a whole lot of talent swimming around the CM Access candidate pool and we want to show their form off! Each month we will showcase one of our team of creative job seekers, giving you a glimpse at them and what they have to offer.
To kick-off this new feature we introduce you to Matthew, a graphic designer who has an abundance of artistic skills. Matt has been with CM Access for a year and a half, and has spent time designing packaging for a popular toy company. His designs can be seen in your local toy aisle and in European stores as well, a fact that Matt enjoys.
Walking through a store with family or friends and pointing to a toy package on the shelf and saying “I designed that” is a great feeling, Matt described.
While some may be hesitant to work in a contracting position, Matthew said partnering with CM Access has been a great experience, including the opportunity to work with market-leading companies. He and his fellow contractors were welcomed into the family at their assigned company, even getting together during downtime with their co-workers. Matthew has the strong support of his career advocate Jason DeVito, who he reports, has worked hard to get him positions in companies that pique his interest. Matthew’s dream is to one day design for the WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment for you non-wrestling fans) since the sport is something he and his father have enjoyed together since his childhood. He revealed that Jason is working to help Matthew realize his dream.
Artistic pursuits are a large part of Matt’s life in more ways than graphic design. Putting his skills to work in costume and set design has strong appeal for him. If you saw the Ultrasonic Rock Orchestra, a Boston rock opera, then you saw some of Matt’s work. He acted as a costume designer for the show. The picture above is another sample of Matt’s work.
Matt also hopes to do some traveling and experience the Scandinavian countries of Iceland and Finland. There is something about the culture and breathtaking landscapes that has always captured his interest.
Just speaking with Matt, it’s clear that his passion for his craft and innovative ideas makes him an asset to any company’s design team.
