Matthew Edwards - Designer and Developer

About

Just a little bit about myself

I am currently working as a Quadient/GMC developer, with 2 years experience, at HomeServe in the West Midlands.

I was approached to take the role to help develop a brand new team, with the aim of bringing all paper and electronic document composition in-house.

As well as my Quadient/GMC experience, I have spent nearly 20 years as a graphic designer, working on projects ranging from designing magazines, direct mail, emails and websites, as well as keynote presentations and videos for corporate conferences.

Quadient/GMC

Document composition

I have successfully completed a number of Quadient/GMC training couses, including Inspire Designer basic and advanced, Automation basic and advanced and Designer scripting, along with HTML for email.

As one of the lead Quadient/GMC developers in the team, I manage the design as well as the implementation of workflows for our monthly Direct Mail campaigns through to transactional terms and conditions. I have also been instrumental in bringing multi-channel communications into the team, including responsive email and SMS.

Testimonials

What other people have to say

  • Matt took what was a pretty vague brief (it had to be purple and have pictures of animals on it!) and somehow managed to produce exactly what I was looking for.

    I’d have been lost without his help and expertise and I have no hesitation in recommending his service.


    Alyson Coughlan, Al's Creatures

  • Approaching Matt to move from Graphic Design into Quadient Developer was a no brainer. His technical aptitude was clear and ability to understand what the customer really needs is tribute to his excellent CX skills.

    Karla Wentworth, HomeServe

  • Matt very quickly showed his commitment to the role by home learning any areas he could and is now easily the lead developer in the team.

    Karla Wentworth, HomeServe

  • Matt also rolls his sleeves up and gets stuff done, no matter what it is required which is a very underrated quality in this day and age. Over the years, Matt has become a detailed and thorough developer and will be an asset to any team.

    Karla Wentworth, HomeServe

  • Matt understands how a workflow should be built, he is easily one of the best developers I have worked with.
