Greetings and welcome to Wright Digital Media - glad you're here. My name is Matthew Wright. My expertise in digital media is the culmination of formal training and decades of real world experience in traditional film, video and multimedia design, working in the corporate, advertising, motion picture, and education space; in creative, design, directorial, animation, technology, production management, film and video production and post-production, from West Michigan to Los Angeles, and finally in Chicago where I've made my home.
I have always been fascinated with art and technology. I began my career in the 80's producing corporate video, later in the 90's working in Los Angeles in commercial and feature film production and eventually as a video editor and motion graphics designer in the Midwest. As a natural extension to my bag of tricks, I added web design and development to my wheelhouse over a decade ago.
At the core, WDM is a one-man shop. You'll see that I use the term "We" on the site frequently for the reason that, 1. when the project requires, I'm fortunate to partner with highly skilled and talented marketers, researchers, writers, producers, directors, designers, photographers and developers on a collaborative basis, and 2., in every project that's taken on, I engage as a stakeholder, working to establish long-term relationships ensuring my clients digital products flexibility, growth and success.
My philosophy is simple. Contribute your best talent, leverage your experience, aggressively maintain and update your skill-set, and seek out, learn from and respond to feedback.
Helping people has been very rewarding to me on many levels. I have volunteered my services to many organizations over the years including Jeff Lowe's Metanoia - The Jeff Lowe Foundation, The Avenue of the Righteous, Illinois, and Streeterville Neighborhood Advocates. I currently serve on the Board of Directors for Lemons of Love, Inc., a 501(c) non-profit that creates and distributes beautifully hand sewn chemo-care bags (containing wonderful chemo treatment relief goodies) to cancer patients going through chemotherapy at hospitals, oncology centers and clinics. We all search for the things that make us happy and whole, I find mine through curiosity, service, and gratitude.
WDM is available for hire on short or long term projects providing a complete digital video editing, graphic and web design and development package including the full complement of Adobe Creative Cloud, copious bells and whistles, and a comprehensive 4K video production package. If you need bright, talented people with mad skill-sets, I can bring them as well. I am very accessible so feel free to get in touch to talk about your next project.
Thank you for visiting Wright Digital Media.
