My name is Matt and I live in Athens, GA with my beautiful wife, Shayna and my two adorable kids, Linden (5 yrs old) and Lyric (3 yrs old). I have a deep passion for creating with excellence. I am a photographer, web designer and graphic designer. My wife and I love anything and everything that is vintage.
I’ve always loved incorporating vintage elements into my designs and I often look to vintage ephemera, and public domain images for inspiration. A few years ago I was searching for vintage inspiration and I became extremely frustrated! All of my usual vintage sites were either smothered in so much advertising that I couldn’t even find the actual vintage images, or they were impossible to navigate. In my frustration I asked myself, “Why isn’t there ONE WEBSITE where I can find tons of vintage public domain images?”. So, I set out to change that, and make a website with NO advertisements and a simple layout that put the focus back where it was supposed to be, on the vintage images.
That was the birth of Viintage.com, and now 2 years later we have thousands of amazing vintage public domain images available on our website. But I don’t want to stop here, our goal is to have over 1 million vintage public domain images available for download. I currently have over 1 million images in my possession, it’s just a matter of sorting them, organizing them, labeling them, and then uploading them. Then I have to manage the hosting and keep the site secure and functional so that the images are easily accessible to our visitors. This is a very ambitious goal especially since I am doing it single-handedly, in my spare time. That’s why I need your support!
