Matt’s engaging and often brooding work suits editorial and literary based projects perfectly due to his ability to communicate conceptual ideas with intelligent simplicity. The texture and palette of his illustrations give his work a confidence that has brought him to the attention of companies such as Interbrand, Ogilvy, Mother London, The Guardian and Diageo to name a few. Even though his work suggests he creates them in some sort of James Bond-esque bunker, Matt actually resides in a small town nestled between the rolling Dorset hills.
