Matt Lineker

Designer

What is your favourite part of the job?

I love making a client look good! A client’s success is my success. The ultimate satisfaction for me is seeing my designs go out into the world and make a positive impact on somebody’s business. Marketing allows me to do what I love – learn about design and work in a creative field. I can’t imagine doing anything else.

What do you get up to when you’re not working?

When I’m not at designing, you can find me at home enjoying the domestic life. Nothing makes me happier than spending time with my wife and cats, playing scrabble, and cooking. I like being creative with my hands as well and building furniture out of driftwood. At night, find me on stage with my brother blasting floor pounding distortion & wailing harmonies with our rock n roll band, The STACKS.

How has your education or experience prepared you for your career?

I have a Bachelors of Design in Graphic Design and more than 5 years of experience as a professional photographer. I learned a lot of important core skills during my time behind the camera that I use everyday in the design process. Working as a photographer helped me develop an eye for composition, color and contrast, and connect with clients on a deeper level.
