Matt Smithson

A fine artist by training, Matt strives to bring a unique visual style to every project that comes across his desk.

A tactile, almost handmade quality characterises much of Matt Smithson’s work, and he approaches every project as a new adventure. Matt enjoys the challenge of working closely with clients to develop their own voice, and continues to find inspiration in found objects, otherworldly landscapes, and the notion that the human mind is driven by sleep and circumstance. Matt received a Young Gun Award for his work from the American Directors’ Club, and his video “The Girl Effect”, produced for the Nike Foundation, was included in the Cooper Hewitt Museum’s National Design Triennial, an exhibition showcasing the work of contemporary designers as they address human and environmental problems with renewed vigour.

Over the past few years he has worked with clients of all shapes and sizes, non-profit organisations, do-gooders, and individuals trying to make a difference. He tries not to take himself too seriously, and has been known to disappear into the wilderness for long periods of time.
