About Matthew Barrett
A little about me: I am a UX designer based in Salt Lake City. I have been working as a graphic designer with a little bit of UX work sprinkled in at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2013. I graduated with a Masters in UX Design from Kent State University in 2017 and a Bachelors in Graphic Design from The University of Utah in 2013.
Although this portfolio site highlights my student work, I have done a little UX work in my job as a graphic designer. See it here.
My goal in studying UX design was to get more into the strategy of design and solve issues bigger and deeper than the visual aspect of a problem. While studying, I’ve taken classes in interaction design, usability, information architecture, content strategy, and user research. I’m open to different types of UX design, but information architecture and interaction design have enticed me the most so far.
I am proficient in the Adobe Creative Suite, I have used programs like Sketch and InVision for web design before, and have even dabbled in 3D animation.
I speak fluent Spanish, am married to a beautiful Peruvian woman and have two sons. Some of the things I enjoy include writing, reading, playing video games, and watching movies. I enjoy learning new things and can adapt well to new technology. I also like writing fantasy, so if you want you can see my site dedicated to a work-in-progress.
