Hello there! I'm

Malachi Lythgoe

An Expert Creative Director.

Introduction

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.

Have a look at my portfolio to see what I can do!
