About Matthew

I never intended to be a graphic designer, having a childhood obsession with Dino-Rider toys and Jurassic Park, I of course wanted to be a palaeontologist.

This sparked an interest in the discovery process, and I think this is what led to understanding the technical precision that designing objects, logos and ads can command. Having developed a critical mind and sense of spatial awareness at college, and with a growing interest in image making, I soon found myself drawn to vector-based design, closely followed by animation.

Today I keep my ideas fresh and unique by traveling overseas and to the family farm in SE Queensland, spending time with my family, taking in fresh air, building Lego, (and still playing with dinosaurs). I also carry a sketchbook and take notes, to draw and catch my thoughts.
