My name is Matthew Latam and I am a graphic/website designer and print press operator (Creative Engineer), I specialize in website design, and work as a press operator.

I create simple, beautiful, usable websites, and all my websites are lovingly hand coded.

My weapons of choice for creating websites include, Adobe CS Programs for creating the art, then to produce clean semantic, XHTML, and CSS. I code to XHTML.
My CMS of choice is Word Press.

Currently I’m teaching myself, more about Adobe CS programs. When I’m not in front of my computer designing, you’ll find me enjoying thing such as travelling, movies, and DIY projects at home

I live in Calgary, Alberta, Canada (born and raised) with my wonderful wife Kristin, and my son Chase.

currently available for freelance work, just shoot me an email @ mlatam@me.com or go to my contact page
