My name is Sean Malvey and I have been a multimedia designer for over 12 years. Since moving to Philadelphia back in 2007 I have been inspired by not only the fantastic historical architecture of the city but also by the creative and inviting people I have encountered. Attending the Art Institute of Philadelphia allowed me to meet other creatives and be inspired by their designs while also meeting some of my closest friends who have been instrumental in my development as an artist.
With my bachelor’s degree in 3d animation and my year of education in web design I was able to get a job working for the Philadelphia apartment rental company, University City Housing. While working for UCH I learned a ton about all aspects of design and was able to hone my web design skills and develop my own style. Being the only person on the design team for the first 3 years with UCH pushed me to master other areas of marketing including photography, videography and social media management. This position also taught me how to be a self-starter and carry a project from its very beginning stages to its final implementation.
While working for UCH I also started my own business, Axeadelphia. Axeadelphia is built around the sport of axe throwing which is growing in popularity throughout the US. Starting this business taught me a ton about effective marketing techniques and specific targeting with ads. I also have been producing monthly videos for Axeadelphia since July of 2017. These videos have taught me a ton about editing and boosting your SEO through youtube. During this time my brother and I produced an award winning documentary centered around the sport of axe throwing and how it started here in Philadelphia back in 2016.
For the past year and a half I've gotten the chance to work for Brandywine Reality Trust, where I was able to obtain my commercial drone license and learn more about working with clients and managing larger teams to produce video and web content.download resume Hire Me
I designed my first major website in 2013 and have since developed my own personal style. All photos, videos and graphics on my websites were created by myself.
Working for UCH taught me how to set up marketing events, special giveaways and extra incentives for prospects while the creation of Axeadelphia only helped to expand upon my knowledge of specific audience targeting and online sales.
I absolutely love creating graphics for all forms of media. I am constantly looking at other designer's work and doing design tutorials online to continue to develop my style.
In the past couple years I have gotten very into photography. While it started just being photographs of the apartments managed by UCH it quickly expanded to event photography, employee headshots and product shots.
One of my favorite things to do is produce videos. Every job since college has involved some form of video production. From apartment tours with UCH to event promos for Kick Axe Axe Throwing.
Since I created Axeadelphia I have been designing products from sketch to production. I was able to secure a manufacturer in Hong Kong, a process which taught me a lot about speaking with manufacturers and negociating the best price on the products.
