Bio.

Since becoming an illustrator in mid-Noughties, Matt has been steadily building himself a big reputation, as one of the most trusted artists in the editorial world. He's the kind of illustrator who can take a complex article or subject matter, and perfectly communicate it with intelligent conceptual simplicity, all against the ticking clock of an imminent deadline. As the likes of The Guardian, Economist and New Scientist can attest, he never fails to land an image on-point and on time.

It's this experience and skill-set which has become the bedrock of his work, and in recent years proved allowed him to increasingly pivot into the world's of advertising and packaging design. Recent projects for Stella Artois, Royal Mail, Adele and an award-winning project for Johnnie Walker show how far he's come. We can't wait to see where he goes next.
