Hello! I am Matthew Rinehart, a New York-based multidisciplinary designer. I love collaborating with people to solve creative problems. My favorite question to answer in the design process is, how? How do we create amazing work together? And how can we have a blast doing it?  Over the years I have worn many hats and flowed with creative teams in a variety of different ways. Clients have included CNN, Cartoon Network, AIGA, Nickelodeon, AMC, USA, Pfizer, Logitech, Sanofi, and more.
I have a background in design, fabrication and motion graphics and have found a passion for technical 3d animation, simulation, and look development. I began learning Python while pursuing my MFA in Computer Arts at the School of Visual Arts and have written several automation scripts in both Maya and Houdini. My primary tools include Houdini, Cinema4d, Redshift, and all things Adobe. I have begun using Unreal as a DCC and have been learning to integrate with Houdini and other parts of my pipeline.  
Education is never-ending. Research is a necessity. Growth is essential. Let's grow somewhere new together.
If interested in collaborating on something new. Please reach out!
