Matthew D. Henderson
I'm Matthew Henderson, a graphic and web designer in Springfield, MO. When I'm not spending time with my family, I like to be creative.
I have a background in art & print journalism. I have been working in marketing since 2006.
As a Christian, I have a passion for charities.
So, I offer a discount to non-profits.
A portion of all commercial jobs goes to my favorite ministries.
I hope we can work together.
Peace be with you,

I developed this site with hand-coded ASP (the language the company said I had to use).
There are tens of thousands of active users.
Clients may search for products many different ways, including by model, type, and photo.
It features lots of fun jQuery plugins to give the site more user interaction.
There is a client / lead tracking aspect to the site as well.
This is a nonprofit organization's site, which features information about their mission and a news publishing section.
It is designed in Wordpress. It is responsive to mobile screen sizes.
It is maintained by its owner.
As a subcontractor, I was given a photoshop file with a
magazine layout style concept, and told to make the site look like the print layout.
It features drop down menus and a photo gallery.
I have designed other sites throughout the years, including large ecommerce sites,
but over the course of many years, many of them are now extinct. I hope to add more sites to this list soon.
Call me to get started on your project.
