About Mat

I am multidisciplinary graphic designer specialising in logo and branding development, typographic design, print, digital, front end web design, motion
graphics, video production, social media strategy, illustration, photography and much more.

My experience spans a wide range of industries and sectors, my daily tasks can range from designing micro-sites for new products to creating animated

I love seeing a job through from conceptual stages through to finished product. Previous roles have entailed the development of marketing material to promote events in such industries as fashion, surf, football, tourism, food and beverage, healthcare, sustainable architecture and media.

I'm a lover of all things creative. I'm a firm believer in a strong work ethic and a positive outlook. I also truly believe in the importance of a quality service and attention to detail. I consider myself to be fairly easy going and friendly to work with. In my 8 years of experience I have had the opportunity to work individually and in a team environment. I love working with positive passionate people and feel that I would add value to any business or brand I work for.

In my spare time I enjoy surfing with my friends, playing football (soccer), drawing, painting, eating out and creating crafty things.
