Hi. I'm Matt

Nice to meet you!

About Me


I'm Matthew McAdams, a student at the University of Alabama at Birmingham where I study graphic and web design. I'm a big fan of geometry and often use basic forms to build more complex graphics. My art is clean, easy to read, and hopefully a pleasure to take in. I draw inspiration from minimal design, the Swiss design movement, clean design languages like Google's Material and Microsoft's Metro. I enjoy working with divisions of content and the spacial relationships between objects.


When I'm not pecking away at code, drawing, or drafting a design, you can find me immersed in worlds like The Elder Scrolls, Fable, and The Legend of Zelda. As for film, I've been primarily inspired by works from Miyazaki's Studio Ghibli. Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle, and My Neighbor Totoro come to mind. While it is true I enjoy these things outside of art, I bring inspiration from these topics into the works I create.
