My name is Matthew Heidenreich and I’m an art director and designer currently working at HLK in St. Louis, Missouri. I began my career with a strong emphasis on front-end development, but shortly realized that design and development work best when paired together. When you leave one component out of the equation, experiences begin to fall apart. When designing, I develop how the elements will interact on the page from the outset, which helps create a seamless experience from start to finish.

While I’m a product of the Interactive Media Program at Maryville University, I still enjoy creating strategic advertising that helps tell a brands story in multiple mediums. And everyday I get to wake up and enjoy what I do, solving problems. When I get the chance to step away from working, I enjoy spending time with my family and the occasional motorcycle ride.
