About Matthew

I’ve worked as an Art Director/Graphic Designer for the last 25 years after completing my Diploma at Randwick TAFE (Now relocated to Enmore TAFE). More recently I have been the full time Art Director at Surfing World magazine for the last 5 years. Doing the odd freelance job in my spare time.

Prior to being full time at Surfing World I freelanced for them for about 7 years and was able to work with a lot of other companies while freelancing including: Arnette, Electric Visual, Volcom, Universal records, Warner Music, Hot Buttered, Addidas as well as various publishing and production companies.

My first full time job was Art Director at Tracks magazine I then worked for several magazines including Contractor at Inside Sport Magazine for a few years. Around 2000 I was Senior Designer at Rockin Doodle’s design studio for 4 years. We had mainly Music industry clients doing CD, poster and advertising artwork for bands like, Regurgitator and Grinspoon.

Over my time I have worked in publishing houses, design studio's as well as being in house designer for private owned brands and had a successful freelance business.

I’ve a facination with pop culture and try to keep on top of current trends and movements. I have a love of typography, branding and layout. My skills include a broad knowledge of Indesign, Illustrator and Photoshop as well as over 25 years experience using a Mac.

Type of work I’m interested in is book and magazine art direction, logo design, branding, packaging, digital design, banner ads, catalogues and brochures as well as other exiting forms of Media.
