We’re thrilled to announce the newest member of the TeamSnap team, Matt Gist, our new designer and head honcho of user experience. We take our user interface and design very seriously because it’s a key part of our mission: to build great software that any hockey mom, football dad or weekend warrior can pick up and use immediately. There’s no learning curve. It just makes sense. And while it may sound easy to design a powerful application that addresses our customers’ needs and keep it intuitive… it’s not. A wise Einstein said, “Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius — and a lot of courage — to move in the opposite direction.” So we went ahead and found ourselves a genius (well he ain’t no fool).
Matt joins us at TeamSnap HQ in Boulder, Colorado where he has resided for the past three years. Originally from New Jersey, he graduated college with a Bachelor of Fine Arts and a concentration in graphic design. Matt has been doing some killer design work for a number of Boulder companies, including Napkin Labs, Scriptpad, Occipital, and Trada as well as other clients around the country. We immediately liked his design sensibility and cleanliness and thought it would be a great fit with the TeamSnap application.
As a kid he liked drawing comic books. In high school he enjoyed art, creative writing and painting. During college he grew to love psychology, anthropology and graphic design. Now he’s a user interface/experience designer – It all makes sense right? Matt will be working on our design, brand, and overall product positioning. When he’s not making things look really nice, you’ll probably find Matt drinking an excessive amount of coffee (he lives on it) or frolicking in the mountains. This past winter he got in 38 days of snowboarding and also enjoys hiking, mountain biking, camping… you get the gist. A former collegiate lacrosse player and self-proclaimed soccer and ultimate frisbee stud, Matt is a fitting and welcome addition to the team.
