Matthew Haeck

As the founder of Haeck Design, Matthew divides his time as lead designer and web developer for their growing roster of clients. Although he spends a majority of his time creating beautiful logos, websites, and print design, he also spends a fair amount keeping up to date on all the tricks of the web development trade.

Experience & Education

After graduating East Carolina University, Matthew began his career as a marketing associate in Detroit, Michigan. After developing a taste for design, he accepted a position in marketing & advertising for Disney. Roughly three years, he began producing flyers, posters, album art, and eventually websites for night clubs and start-ups in Orlando, Jacksonville, and Miami. This led him to develop and create the independent design firm which bears his name. After receiving over a dozen industry awards, working with more then 50 clients, and completing over a hundred projects, Matthew still keeps his finger on the pulse of a thriving industry and works hard to give his clients incredible results with a personal touch.

Technical Skills & Core Competencies

Defining a skillset is tricky, but here are two lists of languages, technologies, and programs that Matthew has an extremely strong comprehension of. The first is filled with technologies that are used weekly, have been successfully delivered on past projects, and are understood well enough to speak at least half an hour competently among experts in the field.

While more complex projects certainly require additional team members, Matthew aims to stay proficient enough to handle a majority of the work and supplement with his network of talented team members as needed.

In Real Life

When away from his designer / developer duties, Matthew enjoy swimming, surfing, running, basketball, collecting vinyl, gardening, and supporting the local arts in his hometown of Raleigh, NC.
