Hello, my name is Matt. I’m a Digital Designer.
I’ve worked in-house, and agency side on projects for leading brands, inspiring startups and great charities. I care deeply about creating world-class, useful, and beautiful products that bring value to people’s lives.

In my current role, I have worked on a huge variety of projects specialising in digital transformation. I am the creative lead on projects from the onset and throughout, conducting workshops and research to get a thorough understanding of what is required - maintaining communication with the client through each stage of the design process.
Over the 7 years at Gravitywell, I’m proud to say I have elevated our identity and developed the agency through a progressive rebrand and 2 website redesigns.
I’ve formed strong long-term relationships with my colleagues and clients alike, successfully producing many digital projects to exceptional standards - including: brand creation and development, websites, apps, video and marketing campaigns.

At Sea I worked within a team of designers, developers and producers on community based campaigns, identities and other design projects. Specifically my role was as a creative working across print and digital mediums.
Sep 2012 — Aug 2013
At Keo Digital I was part of a small team of designers working on digital media and branding. I delivered projects which inspired people to take positive action within their community. Some of the more notable clients were Crowdfunder UK, River Cottage and Channel 4.

My role at Eden originated as a designer but I was quickly promoted to Senior designer within the inhouse web team, where I lead on creative output and managed other designers. I designed and worked with developers and producers on the main Eden Project website, iPhone app, intranet and video campaigns, not to mention many other print and digital materials for events, projects and marketing campaigns.
These are the main areas in which I work on a daily basis. But I love to try my hand in other disciplines such as Photography, Film & Animation.
I have 15 years experience designing for digital environments. I relish how quickly it evolves, and how new technologies can enhance our experiences. Working as part of in-house digital teams and for agencies; I've helped startups, brands and corporations to launch and transform their digital presence. Lately I've been exploring the benefits of design systems and the working balance of design / development.
Often I am heavily involved in a Discovery Phase approach to a project. I'll endeavour to get to the route of an idea, explore and understand how to bring it to life. I strongly believe UX design should be practiced by all members of the team from a project start to finish and so I like to ensure their is a clear vision with the end user being considered throughout the whole process.
Above all design sits a strategy. I've worked with many startups and more established brands to realise and evolve their brand. The digital world throws a whole set of new challenges at organisations with user expectations that must be met. I help brands to step into the digital realm and reach out to new audiences. Giving audiences what they want, whilst letting their voice be heard.
