Sketch Image of Matt Antonio

Hello, my name is Matt Antonio and I am a web designer/developer based in Winter Park, FL. I enjoy creating and designing professional, custom made web sites. Whether you need a static website that won't need to be updated often or a CMS, I can provide the solution.

I am currently pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in Web Design and Development at Full Sail University here in Winter Park. Classes are very fast paced and I will be completing over 30 of them in just 21 months. Take a look below at just a couple of things I’ve learned so far and if you like what you see throughout my site, then please, drop me a line and let’s talk.

HTMLHTML5 Logo

HTML5 is the next iteration of the Hypertext Markup Language. It is not yet a standard, but can certainly be used since all major and modern browsers support it. With HTML5 comes many new features that help to make creating web sites a little easier.

HTML is the structure of a website. Without it all websites would just be plain text. However, it's still pretty ugly on it's own. Back in the day a web designer could "style" a web page directly in the markup, but that's not supported anymore. Now we use CSS for styling and presentation.

CSSCSS3 Logo

Responsive web design, text shadows, box shadows, border radius, multi-column layout, multiple backgrounds, opacity, and so much more. The new features to CSS3 (also not a standard just yet) are very exciting and will solve a lot of headaches for designers.

Some of the new features can be seen right here on my site. Take a peek at my Portfolio or Full Sail Projects, there is no JavaScript or fancy schmancy programming being used. Want one website that can be viewed on a Desktop, tablet, or mobile device? Go responsive!

PhotoshopPhotoshop Logo

Photoshop has become a must have tool for me. This web site you're on now as well as a few examples in my Full Sail Projects were first designed in Photoshop CS5.5. I create the backgrounds, textures, layout, and even place the text where I want it. Then I "slice" it up and put it all together again using HTML5 and CSS3.

Being taught by graphic designers that have been in the industry for 15+ years was a real eye opener. I quickly found that using the default layer styles for whatever I was attempting to create is very amateurish.
