Matthew Ritchie

Senior Product Designer

In my childhood house, we had drawer from an antique printing press which was hung on the wall and repurposed as a shelf. In each compartment that was originally made to store movable type, there were various knick-knacks and household items displayed as if they were art. I’m not sure if that’s what sparked my interest, but I remember being fascinated with the idea of creating something new and interesting out of something that would otherwise be unremarkable. I would often come home from school with my pockets full of interesting things: a broken floppy disk, paper clips, the spring from a clicky pen, these were all potential building blocks for whatever project was currently on my mind. I think it was this, along with the feeling you get when something you create has an impact on someone else, that drove me to be a designer (also “MythBuster” isn’t a real job, and my math grades were sub-par).

After studying Graphic Design at George Brown College, I began my career as a freelance designer specializing in web design, branding, and motion graphics. Since then I’ve focused on building user-centered products and services for a variety of different industries. Now, I’m excited to use my experience and skills to further Xinova’s mission.

I am originally from Montreal (mais je ne parle pas francais), spent my adolescence in New England (but I don’t like clam chowdah), and went to college at in Toronto (but I’m not a Leafs fan). Now I call Seattle home, and like most transplants, I’m here for the mountains, coffee, and laid-back vibe. In my spare time, I enjoy exploring the outdoors with my dogs, playing games (both tabletop & video), watching hockey, and of course making stuff.
