I am a thinker, visual designer, communicator, and problem solver with over 30 years of communication and branding experience.
I have enjoyed working in a variety of environments including design studios, ad agencies, and the internal creative agency of World Vision U.S. Over the last 14 years, my work has focused on helping transform the lives of children and families living in poverty around the world. Building awareness, cultivating relationships with donors, and effective fundraising are all a part of my DNA. Using my talents and skills to make a difference in this world are what matter most to me.
Great design is about understanding the need, recognizing the challenge, and getting the job done through collaborative partnership with my team and clients. Working together is the path to success. Great ideas and effective design are not limited to the type of work I have done over the years. Looking forward, I embrace technology and the tools that help me tell successful brand stories.
I consider myself a brand ambassador for my clients. I am a team player who enjoys working collaboratively. Everyone has valuable input and I listen to critical feedback and suggestions, no matter who they come from. We work better together.

What’s it like working with me?
Matt takes the time to truly learn and understand what is needed, then works with us on a clear, compelling and engaging vision and design of the final product. His impressive design skills are matched with a rare ability to make insightful connections between design and content, taking our publications to the next level.
I contracted with Matt to design and create a new website (amginternational.org) that would incorporate my organization’s new brand statement, colors and logo. He and his team did a wonderful job. The website is clear in how it communicates, and is clean and easy to navigate. Throughout the process, Spangler Creative checked in with me on a regular basis to get input and share progress. After the project was completed, Matt has continued to assist us by adding pages and updating our website as needed. On top of that, Matt is fun to work with. I highly recommend Spangler Creative for your website design and other creative needs.
Matt is the best in the business. He has worked with my team on a few projects — all with differing needs, timelines and budgets — and he never fails. He doesn’t just meet deadlines, he will truly care about your mission and work WITH you to figure out the best ways to highlight your products, no matter where you are in the world. As a Knowledge Manager, it’s important to me that the products my team produces do justice to the stories and data that we’ve captured to make them happen, and it’s been wonderful working with a designer who shares that vision. Highly recommend.
Matt provided a great design service for my web-based project: creative ideas, strong attention to detail, and very easy to work with. Would definitely recommend Matt to you!
Matt treated our web design project like he was employed by our company taking extra time to research options that would allow us to maximize our web presence always keeping us focused on our branded image through our site.
Matt is a great designer, but not only that. He is constantly thinking about new ways his clients can be successful at what they do. He is analytical and creative, always suggesting good ideas and new ways to look at problems and challenges.
Matt created a site for us a number of years ago that we still get great feedback on today. Our web presence has greatly helped us to grow our firm.
In working with Matt on various design projects for our nonprofit, he has listened carefully, offered helpful suggestions and created designs that make our work shine!
If you are looking for a collaborative and creative designer to bring fresh ideas to your work, I highly recommend Matt at Spangler Creative. Matt asks good questions, seeks to understand what you are working to communicate, and will help create a design that tells a great story!
I am offering a FREE one hour consultation as a low-risk way to spend some time with me and find out if you think we will work well together.
