‘I first came to know Matt during my time at the Pearson Foundation. Matt was assigned to the effort as the lead visual designer. His work and demeanor were impeccable. He worked very hard to understand the market segment and to create something that would fit with our overall design strategy.

I have worked with many designers over the years and it is incredibly hard to find individuals like Matt who have a strong design aesthetic and can work within the confines of an established design framework. I highly recommend Matt and would work with him again in a heartbeat.’

Bob Regan, Director of Education
Gates Ventures

‘Matt really understands how brand translates into every detailed visual component in a complex design system. He is able to work at different scales from seeing the big picture to a keen attention to detail. He is able to communicate and lead creative design effectively and professionally.’
