Welcome to my portfolio.

My name is Matt Tallon and I have over 25 years of experience working as a Production Graphic Artist creating designs for Silkscreen, Digital & Offset Prepress.

I also have over 10 years experience developing websites and over 3 years experience with Video and Animation.

I use Adobe Creative Cloud and have used mostly Adobe programs since I began back in 1993. I am proficient in many Microsoft Office programs, Quark Xpress and many others.

I create designs according to the method of production to minimize prepping for output. I am also extremely proficient with grammar and spelling.

I am proficient with Digital Marketing using Google Adwords, Adsense, Ebay and other affiliate marketing programs. I received a certificate from Google for fundamentals in 2017.

I worked at car dealerships for a short time to learn the sales process and have sold many websites via phone and digital marketing with Google.

I have saved thousands of dollars for each company I have worked with by catching mistakes before the products are printed and training artists to be more efficient.
