Matt Schroeter

Freelance Designer & Photographer

I’m a freelance designer and photographer based in Vancouver, Canada. I've worked with a wide range of clients for over 7 years now, usually making designs for websites and apps. I've exhibited and won awards for my photography work, and websites I've designed have been used by millions of people. 

Keeping a strong connection to my community alive is really important to me too. You can often find my work in local non-profit organizations, including Gordon Neighbourhood House's activities and programs.

I love hanging out at a good coffeeshop—drawing, designing, or just catching up with a good friend. And running! I'll often go through the streets of Vancouver or on the city's beautiful seawall.
