Hello! Welcome to the design & development portfolio of Ruben Matamoros. I am a highly motivated Graphic & Web Design professional with 10 plus years experience, now a Full-Stack Software Engineer with a focus on Front End Web Development. Innovative problem-solver who is passionate about developing websites and apps, with a focus on mobile-first design and development. Strengths are in creativity, teamwork, and building projects from concept to execution. I also love soccer, martial arts, traveling, and spending time with my wife and three daughters. 


Valiant Creative is my design & development portfolio in my humble home here in the Tampa Bay area.

However, I do enjoy working from coffee shops or places where my creative juices can flow better from time to time. My availability is quite flexible and typically I reply back to messages in a very prompt manner. Ready to chat?

Originally, I hail from the tropical land of Costa Rica, although, I grew up mostly here in the USA and now reside in Tampa Bay, Florida.

I graduated at the top of my class in 2013 from Full Sail University as the Advanced Achiever, and since then I have designed on a global scale with companies such as Ashley Furniture and Carillon Tower Advisors of Raymond James. When I’m not sketching and crushing pixels I enjoy being active as well after sitting all day. My favorite sports are soccer, martial arts, and bike riding. What I enjoy most of all is traveling and spending time with my beautiful wife and three daughters.

My clients come to me with a business problem they are struggling with, and I partner with them to develop exciting and flexible marketing collaterals that build brand awareness, promote product benefits, enhance the product's professional appearance; and in turn contribute to sustained values for their business.

Cognizant of the importance of balancing the client's needs and vision with practical and cost-efficient design formats, I strive to develop design solutions that are inviting and interesting but also mirror the client's core values and mission.
