Hi! We’re Matt & Katherine, and we enjoy old lettering, strong coffee, and long walks on the beach (no, really).
MATT WEBB, PARTNER
Matt grew up in small town Alberta, spending alternate weekends watching his father hand-letter signs and pinstripe semi trucks. Unfortunately, the internet hadn’t been invented yet, so it took until University for him to discover that what he’d been watching was actually called ‘design’, and it was happening in a building on the other side of campus. Soon after that realization he entered the design program at Macewan University, and eventually studied at the Cooper Union before completing a Bachelor of Design, Honours degree at NSCAD.
Matt began his career in Toronto, and spent the next ten years working at a number of award winning studios across the city, eventually becoming the Senior Designer at Chad Roberts Design. Working along side creative Director Chad Roberts, Matt created extensive, carefully considered branding and packaging solutions for clients ranging from international distributors to boutique establishments. His work has been recognized nationally and internationally by Communication Arts, the Cannes Cyber Lions, Applied Arts, and the ADCC among others.
Matt used to be a professional photofinisher, and spent a good chunk of 2001-2004 loading an E6 dip-n-dunk processor in total darkness.
