Matthew Donaldson

Graphic Designer Detroit, MI

I love bicycles, dogs and classical music. I design by trade, but in my off time I'm a cook, mechanic, novelist, gardener, photographer, adventurer, and musician. I'm inspired by nature and architectural photography, comics, and the full breadth of American and Japanese pop culture.

Education

Michigan State University

BA in Studio Art

Under the guidance of nationally and internationally recognized faculty members, students conduct research and creative exploration across many areas of study. Recent curricular changes promote the practice and scholarly research of the most enduring creative media, innovation using the latest technology, and the investigation of the rich intersections between them. The vast majority of the department’s offerings continue to take place in small classes and the possibilities of exploration across AAHD’s various areas and degree programs are great. Supplementing this classroom and studio experience, we offer many innovative learning initiatives including internship and study abroad opportunities and a robust visiting artist and scholar lecture series.
