Creative Directing ~ Web Development ~ UX/UI Design ~ Graphic Design ~ Trade Shows ~ Marketing
I’m Malachi Lythgoe - a Creative Manager & Front-End Web Designer with 15+ years of industry experience and currently living in Phoenix, Arizona.
Throughout my career, I have demonstrated success in completing multiple complex art direction projects with stringent deadlines and under budget. I have a competitive, technical skill set of web and graphic design, including a vast amount of front-end e-commerce web experience. Uniquely, however, I also have a strong background in trade show preparation, management, training, and development. The combination of these two areas gives me the expertise to be highly adaptive in any situation. I am skilled in the art of supervising, coordinating the functions of a design team, and ensuring a finished product reflects a unified conceptual approach.

Initially hired to create websites as a graphic designer before passing them off to the web developers. Responsible for designing web art, trade show materials, and side projects. Self-taught front end development and UX/UI design. When AYR was acquired by RWS, I was the only web department employee retained during the merger.

Malachi is a great worker and creative talent. While at the Greensheet he quickly adapted to the workflow systems and strict deadlines. His eagerness to learn and grow within his field will continue to carry him in his career.
Pleasantly surprised at the effectiveness and agility at which Malachi created my website!
It was exceptional. Malachi brought many great ideas to me on how to update my website. He then was very prompt in getting me drafts to look at. His new design was so spot on that I didn't want to change anything. He was fantastic.
Malachi did an awesome job at taking my vision and creating exactly what I wanted, and then some. He was always responsive and always had a pleasant attitude when I had some nit-picky edits.
Malachi was a pleasure to work with. He offered many insights that I wouldn't have thought of without his guidance. He always tried to keep us pointed in the right direction. I can't think of anything that would have made this experience smoother. I would highly recommend Malachi to anyone who is looking for personal friendly service.
Malachi did a great job. We went through all of the pre-design details and he completed the task with perfection!
