I teach both campus and online Graphic Design students how to merge traditional design principles with web, mobile, and interactive technologies. The curriculum instructs students how to effectively observe user habits, design based on user needs, build wireframes and develop interactive prototypes using tools such as Sketch, Invision, and Adobe Experience Design.
Graphic Design students leave with a working knowledge of prototyping and the role UI Design and UX Design play together in creating successful experiences.
I had the privilege of having Matthew as my lab specialist instructor for interface and usability and web design courses at Full Sail University. Never in my life have I had someone encourage, empower, and mentor me like Matthew. He was one of a few people who genuinely took vested interest with his students to coach us beyond our limits. He was patient as we all had different learning styles, and used many methods to help each one of us connect concepts teaching us a semesters worth of HTML and CSS in less than a month. I learned more about typography in his class than I did in my dedicated typography course. Matthew Letts’ leadership, mentorship, and passion for teaching pushes people to achieve more than they knew were possible!
During my time as a student at Full Sail University, Matthew quickly has become more than an instructor to me, but more of a mentor. He is someone I go to for advice, information and guidance on all things design. He has an impeccable way of communicating in a way that is unique to each student, ensuring the greatest possibility of success and comprehension. Matt’s personal philosophy on teaching stretches far beyond the walls of any school and his enthusiasm for education far exceeds his duties as an “instructor”. His influence will stay with me long after I graduate from Full Sail University, and I look forward to putting into practice the philosophies he has taught me in my own career.
I had the opportunity to have Matthew lett as a Lab Specialist in a couple of classes while attending Full Sail University and I can say Matthew has a true passion and dedication for his career. He is a person that cares, easy to talk, great at what he does, and very inspirational. I also had the opportunity to work together in the development of my personal website and it was a great experience. I highly recommend Matthew Lett for any services he offers or any team work.
Matthew Lett is a very knowledgeable teacher, mentor and also a great work colleague. I have been granted the opportunity to not only have him teach me as a college course director but also as a professional work colleague and mentor on multiple web projects. I have learned a lot from Matthew’s expert knowledge and mentoring in creative design, web design, design business and branding. I highly recommend Matthew as a top pick for any creative web project and also a top pick for mentoring and teaching.
Professor Matthew Lett has been an extreme source of encouragement and has given me precise and helpful feedback. Throughout my time in his class at Full Sail University I have been provided constructive critiques that will make me a better artist and employee. He has helped me understand layouts, typography placement and color contrast all within Adobe InDesign. In his class I have learned how to execute a proper magazine cover, feature magazine article, branding and packaging and lastly corporate marketing collateral such as brochures. He is very hands on, detail oriented and extremely patient. I appreciate his time and the effort that he puts into making his class great!
