Sentinel Designs is a freelance company run by Matthew Picinich who holds a BFA in Graphic Design from Southern New Hampshire University. Matthew first realized his love of illustration and graphic design when he was a boy scout (Bloomfield, NJ Troop 22) and has since wanted a career in graphic design. Matthew holds over 10 years of experience utilizing the Adobe Creative Suite to create designs for all businesses. Most of Matthew’s clients have been self-published authors who come to Matthew for business branding, website design, and book covers. All of Matthew’s designs for his author clients take into consideration popular trends in both the traditional and self-published best-selling novels. Matthew also understands the desire to be unique and wanting to have a cover that blends in with the crowd but also stands out, which is why he is keen on creating custom designs more than he dabbles in pre-made designs. His clients do not stop there; however, Matthew has also designed for blogs, podcasts, schools, photographers, and boutiques.
Where designing is concerned, Matthew only has two mottos: Guard the author’s creativity and I’m not happy, until my client is happy.
If there is any one person aside from his wife and his family (including supportive in-laws) that has fostered Matthew’s love and will to design, it is his sentinel angel and first believer, Mr. White. If it weren’t for Mr. White, he would have never found his love for illustration and design.
This company is for you, Mr. White.
