Hi. I’m Matt Anderson, and I’m an Interface Designer.
Welcome to Lift22 Creative, a micro-design agency dedicated to taking design into amazing deliverables. Based out of Salt Lake City, Utah, I am addicted to Mac’s. Design is an obsession for me and I strive to produce incredible and eclectic work for my clients. Browse around. Drop me a hello. I promise I’ll say hi back.
For inquires regarding projects, custom or not, please use the Contact Form below. Lift22 is currently taking on new clients so drop me a line & let me know what you are looking for. I’d love to help! The following worksheets (Web and Logo) will provide me with essential information for the development of your new brand identity, website and/or print project. As always, if you have any questions... please contact me. Thank you!

Print, Web, & Identity Guy. Oh, And I Tweet Too.
For the past 7 years I have been giving myself to the Adobe Creative Suite in an effort to absorb as much info as I possibly can. I’ve learned a lot... a ton actually, but it doesn’t stop there! I would love to connect with you so drop me a line if you are looking for anything hip and new. Meanwhile, look at the work I have created recently, but be sure to check back, it’s constantly being updated.
What I Can Do
All design and web applications, CSS, XHTML, Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Flash, AS2 & 3, New Media, iMovie (ha ha, just playing) Final Cut, and Pro Tools. I have spent the past few years working on designing smart user interfaces that meet the demands of the ever-changing new media standards. I am also diving into iPhone development (more info to come). I have also worked extensively with print design, identity development, branding guidelines, and given support/consulting for demanding development teams needing creative direction.
Software I Love
As I mentioned above, I love Mac’s. One reason (there are many) is the incredible software I have access to! I use the following apps to make my life a lot easier:
- Things (Pure productivity at it’s best).
- Espresso (Powerful, Simple and Quick HTML editor).
- Transmit (Great FTP Client developed by Panic).
- iChat (So much better then Skype).
- Quicksilver (I don’t know how I survived with out it).
- Billings (A beautiful financial tool to keep track of projects and time).
- FontExplorer X (Too many fonts NOT to use one).
- Adobe CS4 (Uh... duh).
- Tweetie So I can keep up with all you Tweeters!
If you have other software you love, let me know! I know there is a large number of developers out there pumping out great work for these beautiful machines.
Random Rants... One At A Time
This is going to be a fun section to continually update while I am in the process of implementing a blogging system on my site. So, in the meantime you are privy to one time shout-out’s of info I think is valuable to all. Check back for the blog, that will make life much easier!
- Why a logo costs more than $100
Thanks to Brian White for putting this awesome video together. Keep in mind, this entire process is only for one logo! Gives a little perspective into the thought, time, and process we (logo and idenity designer’s) put into making our work. Let me know if you have any thoughts!
Shoot me a line if you want some more information. I am available for freelance projects right now, but you never know in the future. If you would like to collaborate on something with me, please let me know as much as possible and what your expectations are. If you are looking for a designer, please fill out in as much detail what you are looking for. Thanks!
