Recommendations

Matt is a truly exceptional graphic designer, illustrator and brand consultant. He has taken my business concept and turned it into a beautifully crafted work of art. I'm confident that upon launch, our brand and site will stand out and appeal to our musician user-base, who, as creatives, are not impressed. Matt is diligent, enthusiastic, able to adapt to a fast-paced work environment, and has an attention to detail that is second to none. We continue to work with him not only on a design basis, but as a consultant expert on UX and UI owing to his extensive knowledge and experience of the digital world.

I've had the pleasure to work closely with Matt on a high profile Banking App project. I was beyond impressed with his hardworking attitude and design skills. His work, ability and personality makes him stand out as one of the more strong, resilient and reliable designers I know. He really 'up the ante' to push the design for the Banking app. For me it was great to work in a collaboratively manner with a competent designer and professional - he got it and was quick to get things done! He was really positive as a team player as well as a strong leader on the project ( leading and managing team members too.) He is able to articulate his thinking and communicate with clients well. Also, mentor and inspire fellow team members (not one to be take a back seat!) He is friendly, funny and can inject a good sense of camaraderie on any project team. All I can say he is an intelligent talent that keeps on pushing and striving to get better. I know he will do really well in his career

I worked with Matt for over 6 months on a high profile mobile app project and he is one of the nicest people to work with. He's a team player, not afraid of challenging clients when needed and equally as comfortable presenting to them. His attention to detail, leadership qualities and ability to multitask gains him respect all round. In his role on the team, he had to oversee 2 large projects across 2 teams of 6+ and took on the responsibility with ease. I would definitely recommend him. Generally an all round nice bloke who's polite and courteous, which counts for a lot these days!
